I got this urn back from the college, I nearly forgot about it. I was exploring the idea of making a creamatory urns when this one was born. I don't know who it would be for but I saw some on line and thought that they were quite dreadful, no pun intended of course. I'll hang on to this until I decide if I'll be cremated or not. I'm sort of liking the idea, well, not "liking" it but liking it in comparison to other choices. Being of good Scandinavian stock (thanks dad) a dramatic ship burning would be quite an ending too! Meanwhile back at the pottery, I'll keep this one as an ideal!
