Ler

"Irish god and Father of the sea" pottery cremation urn for ashes.

Handmade blue, copper, crackle stoneware cremation urn.

Ler  meaning "Sea" in Old Irish is a sea god in Irish mythology. His name suggests that he is a personification of the sea, rather than a distinct deity. Ler is chiefly an ancestor figure, and is the father of the God Manannán mac Lir, who appears frequently in medieval Irish literature. He married again after his first wife died and she gave birth to the famed children who were turned into swans by their jealous aunt and stepmother. Ler protected his beloved swan children in his waters for 900 years.

Urn size - 200 cubic inches

This blue Raku fired cremation urn has been glazed with a formula containing some copper and cobalt. The cremation urn for ashes has a striking blue finish with a decorative crackle throughout. Areas of copper are revealed in this urn and a variety of hues shimmer with the movement of the light. This is a lovely round funeral urn matched with a dome lid and decorated to emulate the signature elements of water.
