The interlocking circles of the Borromean Rings can symbolise the Christian Trinity (God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit).
Being a very ancient symbol for the strength and power of unity, Borromean Rings can also represent the karmic laws of the universe and the interconnectedness of life. Just like the Butterfly Effect, one should expect a reaction out of every action made. Even branches of Science and Mathematics have used the Borromean Rings as a model to explain the universe, through Geometry and Molecular Architecture.
Comes with a certificate of authenticity as this urn is a genuine artwork.
Western Raku is a very fast process inspired by a traditional Japanese technique. It involves heating the pot very quickly to 1000 degrees Celsius until it is glowing red then pulling it from the flames and placing it in a metal vessel (I use a rubbish bin) with shredded paper and sawdust which then burst into flame. With the new fire fully alight the lid is then put on. Black smoke is produced which colours the clay and the oxygen deprived atmosphere causes the glazes to change producing unpredictable and sometimes incredibly beautiful results.
