Design Influence

If you are searching for an urn that represents Ireland and being Irish, this Dolmen Urn is a representation of Ireland's oldest megalithic tombs, Poulnabrone. Poulnabrone is one of Ireland’s most iconic archaeological monuments and the original resting place for Ancient Irish people's cremated remains about 6,000 years ago. A fitting tribute to a proudly Irish person. This urn is unique and no others exist on the planet, a truly special urn for the special person you have lost. This urn has a beautiful feel and texture and you will clearly see the hand-thrown nature of the piece.  

Urn Colour

The colours of the Dolmen Irish Urn are earthy to represent the timeless beauty found in the landscape of Ireland. The glaze is a mix of greens and purples to represent the landscape of the Burren in County Clare and home to the Poulnabrone Dolmen. Situated on the high Burren limestone plateau, Poulnabrone Dolmen is one of Ireland’s most iconic archaeological monuments and is the second-most visited location in the Burren, after the Cliffs of Moher. It is the oldest dated megalithic monument in Ireland. An optional extra with the Urn is a handmade Oak plinth - Created by an Irish National award-winning Wood turner. There is also an option to arrange an engraving on request. See sample image. The Urn is large enough to take the cremated remains of a large adult male or female.

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.
