"Son of the sea" pottery cremation urn for ashes.
Manannán mac Lir, son of the sea is a sea deity in Irish mythology. He is the son of the God Ler and takes over his duties after his father passes away. In the tales, he is said to own a boat named Scuabtuinne ("Wave Sweeper"), a sea-borne chariot drawn by the horse Enbarr, a powerful sword named Fragarach ("The Answerer"), and a cloak of invisibility (féth fíada). He is seen as the guardian of the Otherworld and one who ferries souls to the afterlife. Manannán was associated with a "cauldron of regeneration". This is seen in the tale of Cormac mac Airt, among other tales. Here, he appeared at Cormac's ramparts in the guise of a warrior who told him he came from a land where old age, sickness, death, decay, and falsehood were unknown (the Otherworld was also known as the "Land of Youth" or the "Land of the Living")

Large and proud this pottery cremation urn for ashes stands tall supporting a domed lid. Glaze was poured over the cremation vessel after the urn had been created on a pottery wheel. A percentage of copper and tin was added to the glaze formula giving the pottery urn varying shades of blue. Metallic shimmers are forced to the surface of the glaze due to the extreme temperature the cremation urn was fired at, emerging as copper shades, reds and greens.
