I have been asked by a dear friend to make her funeral urn. I have searched here to find recommendations about how large to make it. I saw that one potter recommended 5# of clay, but that's not exactly what I need to know. What volume inside should I be trying to create? In other words... Does anyone know approximately, on average, what volume of ashes make up the remains?
I know this is a bit of a strange topic, but I will write an article in the New Ceramics magazine about funeral urns and I need every insight/help/information/tip etc. I can get from you. I have never made an urn myself and I don't want to in the future. I'am interested in your stories, how you came to make urns, if you find it creepy to make urns or quite the contrary, if you know of really extraordinary or unusual urns etc. Thank you for every help, link and tip you can give.
