Ceramic Pot for Ashes by Tim Gee
Choosing a ceramic pot for ashes can be a lengthy process but you will know in your heart when you find the right one.
Tim Gee has created two gorgeously textured ranges of ceramic urns exclusively for Scattering Ashes and we couldn’t be more honoured. This beautiful Marine Range and the Lunar Range. We have long admired Tim’s work and when he agreed to put together a range of urns we were delighted. He has won so many awards for his ceramic skills and has exhibited throughout the UK and abroad.
Tim, a former chef/patissier, has an incredible ability to use his precision to make vessels that demand to be touched, held and loved. Tim focuses on the textural nature of clay. Starting in the late 1990s with very fine porcelain work before becoming more interested in firing and glazing. Each pot has taken years of research and experience to make this beautiful. A true master of shape, texture and glaze.
Based in South Devon Tim is yet another amazing local artist that we are proud to have the opportunity to work with.
Ceramic Pot for Ashes by Tim Gee
Tim creates a wonderful tactile finish to this range of urns that really make me think of the surface of the moon and the bottom of the sea. Each one is thrown individually before being fired and then glazed. The glaze inside is smooth and shiny and a total and unexpected joy. We have two ranges, Lunar and Marine. Both call on the
Ceramic Pots for Ashes – Marine Range
The Dylan Urn
Dylan is a Welsh name combining dy and llanw, meaning ‘sea’. In Welsh Mythology Dylan was a legendary sea god who prompted all the waters of Britain and Ireland to weep when he died. And we do weep! It’s a necessary part of the bereavement journey. This urn is a beautiful shape with a clever flat lid and the inner has a smooth and colourful glaze. This gorgeous stormy grey coloured urn evokes our island shores.

The Thalassa Urn
The deep greens and subtle shades of brown evoke the movement in seaweed in the ocean. Thalassa comes from the Greek word for sea. Many divers call themselves thalassophiles – people who love the sea. I think I might start calling myself this, after embracing the cold water swimming! This urn is a beautiful shape and the inner has a smooth and colourful glaze.

The Rubrum Urn
The smallest urn in our marine range the Rubrum is named after the Red Sea – Mare Rubrum – due to the fantastic red hue. Tim is renowned for his textural glazes and his ability to create beautiful forms that demand to be touched and held. A snug fitting lid will hold your loved one’s ashes securely and will be a wonderful addition to any home.
