Shamrock Urn (With Handmade Oak Plinth)

Design Influence

On Back order please let us know if you would like a Shamrock Urn for human ashes held for you. If you are searching for an Urn that represents Ireland and being Irish, this Shamrock with Celtic symbolism embodies so much of the Irish identity. The Shamrock Urn design was first drawn numerous times by the artisan to eventually come up with a truly Irish representation of the Shamrock. A Celtic knot surrounds the Shamrock Urns' collar and represents how our lives are intertwined and bound together for eternity. This Urn has a beautiful feel and texture and you will clearly see the hand-thrown nature of the piece. Ciarán perfectly combines iconic symbols of Ireland with the beauty of his glazing. The glazed colors are earthy to represent the timeless beauty found in the mountains and seas of Ireland. Engraving of the plinth by a precision engraver and is available as an additional option.

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.
