Wooden urns with a timeless, classic appeal
Wooden cremation urns represent something that’s beautiful in both life and death—conveying a sense of rich beaty, timelessness and strength. Wooden urns are a powerful tribute to fond memories and a spirit that lives on.
Wooden urns for ashes celebrate a time gone by
Wooden cremation urns capture our hearts and imaginations by evoking memories of a time gone by: the vivid sensation of sitting in our father’s study, the fresh smell of a wood shop, or the serenity of walking through a lush forest.
Hand crafted with care
Due to the nature of wood materials and the inspiration of our artists, each of our wooden urns is one-of-a-kind. The character and life force of a wooden urn is in its grain, and that grain is as unique and individual as the beloved person or pet it honors.
To create these unique urns, our artists use a variety of woods. Some relish carving beautiful urns out of urban trees destined for landfills, such as Siberian elm, silver maple, green ash, and box elder. Others prefer to work with more exotic materials.
Many of our artists use a lathe ― a rotating, wood-working instrument ― to forge and shape the wood. Due to the artisan nature of wood carving, every piece is a one-of-a-kind work of art. Various finishes bring out vivid color tones and unique textures in the wood. Urns made of wood are sturdy and durable.
Wooden urns for ashes tend to be sturdier and more durable than other types of cremation urns, with the exception of metal urns. While it’s possible to nick or dent a wooden urn, you’re unlikely to break it, making it ideal for display in many parts of your home.
