Cat Pet Urn – The Blue Fairy Cat -Out of stock

Design Influence

This Cat Pet Urn is handmade in Ireland by one of our best ceramicists, Ciaran. The design is his own and captures the mythical nature of Cats in Ireland and its culture. The detailing on the nose of a Celtic Knot represents eternity as it never ends. This Urn has a beautiful feel and texture and you will clearly see the hand-thrown nature of the piece. If you are looking for a Pet Urn in Ireland that is individual and very special this is the one. The Celtic people produced a wealth of intriguing folklore. My interest was piqued when I learned about the rich folklore surrounding a cat-based creature known as the Cait Sidhe in Ireland.  The Cait Sidhe were spirit-realm-type creatures who took the form of  cats. For the most part, the Cait Sidhe were seen as fearsome, but they were also capable of bringing good blessings. Click here for some of the tales about them as well as where they show up in cultural events and what their origin might be.

Colors Available

The colors are earthy so they represent the timeless beauty found in the nature of Ireland and its seas. This Cat Pet urn is also available in other colors.


This Urn is delivered in a beautiful Urn presentation box lined with Irish traditional hessian.

Ciarán- Artist, Ceramicist, designer

Ciarán, an Irish language speaker has a love of Irish history and design. He ties his Irish heritage creations with his own glazes for his Celtic Cremation Urns. A range of locally inspired colors fired in his self-made kiln. Ciarán studied and lectured in Art and Design as well as being a highly regarded Ceramicist for the last 30 years. He lives with his family on the banks of the historical Carlingford Lough. Image below is some detailing on the Bean na heireann Irish Harp Urn
Carlingford, one of the most beautiful places in Ireland. The Cooley Mountains on one side and ’ the mountains of Mourne sweep down to the sea’ on the other. Each of his Celtic Cremation Urns represents our history, our people and the colors found on land and sea. As Ciarán says, “they are each an expression of Ireland”. Ciarán walked the coast, fields, and mountains looking for the colors he wanted to inspire his glazes. He then went about mixing and testing the glazes to match his imagination. According to Ciarán you need to be as much a Chemist as a Ceramicist to get it just right. He spent months and months perfecting the colors that don’t truly show themselves until after firing. The combination of form, design, and the glaze has made his unique pieces much sought after. His work has been commissioned and presented to many dignitaries including An Taoiseach -Our Leader -The Irish Prime Minister and also the President of Ireland.
