These very tactile urns are polished with beeswax to achieve a glass-like, smooth finish. They would sit splendidly within the family home as a piece of natural artwork and discreetly hold the ashes of a loved one or family pet. In turning and crafting the urn – he exposes the very heart of the tree to provide a stunning display of natural colours and textured grains. The domed cap is finished with a beautifully engineered brass thread.

As each urn is turned from a single sourced log – no two urns are identical. Each urn is signed, numbered and comes with a certificate of authenticity. Some urns are finished with artistic metal embellishment – such as bronze work.

To help you with size and choosing the correct product we have a simple step by step guide.

  1. Start by taking some digital scales and the container of ashes that you would have received from the crematorium.
  2. Place this box onto the digital scales and weigh the ashes.
  3. If the ashes are contained in a poly-tub, remove 230g from the additional weight. If they are in a cremation box, remove 200g from the weight.
  4. Our rule of thumb is that every kilogram of cremated remains equates to 1 litre of ashes.
  5. This means if you have approximately 3 kilograms of cremated remains you will need to purchase an urn of between 3-4 litres in capacity.
  6. We have products to suit all needs, available from 0.025 litre through to 8 litre capacities.
