The Boann Celtic Cremation Urn – Fern (with optional Oak Base)

Design Influence

The Boann Celtic Cremation Urn for human ashes takes its inspiration from Irish mythology. The River Boyne flows into the Irish Sea and was created by the goddess Boann, from where the river got its name. 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.

On the lid of the Boann Celtic Cremation Urn for human ashes is a single spiral 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.

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.

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.
