Porcelain is, in fact, a ceramic material. The toughness, strength, and translucence of porcelain are the consequence of the formation of glass and the mineral mullite that results when heating all materials at a given high temperature. The word "ceramic" comes from the Greek word meaning pottery.
Historically, ceramic urns were pieces prepared by shaping the clay body (a clay rich mixture of various minerals) into the desired shapes before being subjected to high temperatures in a kiln.
The ceramics used for the porcelain ceramic urns shown in this section, however, refers to a very diverse group of materials. While all are fired to high temperature, some ceramic urns may not have been shaped from material containing any clay.
We invite you to delight with the unique pieces of artwork found here. Each urn is a dignified and elegant tribute to a loved one.
