Sorry for your loss.  

For human urns I've been told to figure 1 cubic inch per pound.  For a 200 lb person + or - that would be an inside measurement of 6 x 6 x 6.  I've figured that to be a bit less than a gallon size.  For Thanatos at 10 lbs that would be less than 3 x 3 x 1.5, maybe a cup, cup and a half.  You do beautiful work.  I'm sure Thanatos would love being always near you as you play in clay.

I use stretcher bars from the painting section, they come in all sizes.  I suspend the clay on a piece of cloth over the bars after I cut the clay to size.

As a preventative I use a barrier cream.  I don't remember the brand.  I special ordered it from my pharmacy.  Apparently it comes either as a water barrier cream or an oil barrier cream.  The instructions for mine were to rub it in and then run the hands under cool water.  The water would bead off where ever the cream was.  Every couple of hours it should be reapplied.  

hope this helps.
