Radek – Land and Sea- Cremation Urn Collection
He seeks his Celtic Urn inspiration from living with his family near the Fingal shoreline, bordered between an abundant sea and the most fertile land in Ireland. He has developed exception Cremation Urns. His Irish land and Sea Cremation Urn collection is appreciated by people across the globe for the design, the colors, the glazing technique, and the individuality of each and every Urn.
Creating a collection that represents our Island nation with hand-worked glazes that are inspired by the Irish coastline.
He has a unique style and his heart is invested in the art of each unique creation.
To create his Irish land and Sea Cremation Urn collection designs he tried many prototypes and tweaking them until he had unique creations that both represented our Celtic past and would honor the individual and family while avoiding the typical shamrock and Leprechaun for more authentic symbolism.
The glazes created many chalenges as the colors needed to reflect what is found in our landscape and sea. The glazing on each Urn is carefully hand-poured and therefore each Urn has a unique glaze pattern not found in any other Urn.
A winner of numerous design awards and more recently Irelands’ premier design ‘Showcase’ event and won the best ceramic design award nationally and as his works have been presented to our current president Michael D. Higgins they are in demand.
High Quality Urns each handcrafted and unique.
This Celtic Cremation Urn inspiration is from the centre of much of our Irish mythology. Newgrange and The River Boyne . The surrounding area has a rich history of mythological and historical heritage. The River Boyne is home to many special places from Irish History including the passage tombs of Newgrange, Knowth and Dowth, the Hill of Tara an ancient seat of the High King of Ireland, Trim Castle, the Hill of Slane. A number of Urn features are inspired by stone carvings at Newgrange. In Irish mythology, the Spiral represents the sun, with a clockwise spiral indicating the shrinking Winter sun. Cremation was practiced in Ireland 5,000 years ago and across many ancient civilizations.
The Boann Celtic Cremation Urn, Eternal Celtic Spiral lid
Long before the excavations at Newgrange began in 1962, there had been a story told that on certain days of the year, (nobody could say just when) sunlight fell on the tri spiral design in the back chamber of Newgrange. Professor O’Kelly was familiar with this tale when he started his work. He thought that the tale confused Newgrange with the well known alignment at Stonehenge. However he recalled the story when the roof box was rediscovered in 1963. He found in 1967 that the beam of light that penetrates the chamber at dawn at the winter solstice reaches the floor just below the tri-spiral. No one in modern times could possibly have seen the light in the chamber before Professor O’Kelly, as the roof box had been blocked up with stones and covered by the collapsing walls of the cairn. It seems incredible that the story for so long considered an old wives tale was proved right.
