The Tara Urn – Cobalt (With Free Oak Base)

A Gaelic Royal Urn for Ashes.

Design Influence

This collection represents all that is the heart of the Irish Island nation. The Hill of Tara is most synonymous in myth as the residence of the High King of Ireland. Tara gets its name from Teamhair na Rí meaning ‘sanctuary of the Kings.' It is important as the traditional inauguration site of the ancient High Kings of Ireland. However, Tara was an important site long before the High Kings. A passage tomb known as Dumha na nGiall (meaning ‘the mound of the hostages') is the oldest visible monument and dates from around 3,000 BC. Many Urns have been found in locations such as Newgrange, Knowth, and Dowth and are thought to have held the remains of the Gaelic Royals.  This style of Urn represents the stone carvings found within these famous tombs with detailing on the handles and lid.  The Tara Cremation Urn for ashes has the powerful Celtic Spiral detailed in the lid and a discrete spiral rivet on the handles, influenced by our Irish heritage. Included with the Urn is a handmade Oak plinth - Created and signed by an Irish National  award-winning Wood turner. It can be engraved on request. See sample image.  

Color of Cremation Urn

Each Urn is unique as the glaze is hand applied individually and no two Urns are the same. The glaze color represents the greens of our land, shore. The blues represent the depths of our seas and lighter blue where the sea washes up on our beaches to meet sea moss-covered rocks along our shoreline.

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.
