An Arts & Crafts grape leaf with grapes design is imprinted on all four sides of this stoneware box/urn, with the leaves and grapes glazed in vibrant green and purple, with the background a lighter matte green.

It has a fitted lid with a stacked design, and rests on a short base that is slightly indented. It is glazed inside in the same matte lichen green glaze.

It could be used as just a decoration, an urn, or as a vase, as the interior is glazed and waterproof.

I carved the grape leaf design in a linoleum block, then pressed it into a slab of clay rolled out to a bit over 3/8 inch, while the clay was still damp. Four of these slabs were then allowed to dry a bit, then cut into tiles. The edges of these tiles, plus the bottom, were beveled, so they could then be put together like a mitered picture frame. After it is thoroughly dry, it is fired to bisque, then glazed, then fired again, resulting in a very durable stoneware. All of the unglazed surfaces (underside of lid, bottom of the box) were painted with a coat of TileLab brand sealer and finish.

If this box were to be used as a pet urn, it would hold the cremains of an animal up to 48-50 pounds.
