Urns

Urns are specifically made for holding cremated remains. They range in shape and size, and can be simple in form or a true work of art. The urns we offer come in a variety of natural materials, such as bronze, wood and stone. We also offer smaller keepsake urns, mementos and jewelry. For more information about our selection please contact us.

 

Cast Bronze Urn

Hardwood Urn

Metal urns are machine crafted from both base and alloy metals such as steel, copper, sheet bronze, pewter and brass. These urns are finished using a variety of techniques such as plating, polishing, brushing and lacquering. Metal urns are durable and thus appropriate for burial and home placement.

 
Ceramic and Glass Urn

Ceramic & Glass

Ceramic and glass urns are made by artisans employing a variety of shaping, glazing, firing, coloring and blowing techniques. Ceramic vessels have been used for cremation urns as far back as recorded history. Urns in this category may be traditional or organic shaped. These urns are sometimes adorned with fired-in appliqués or metallic trims. Because of their delicate nature and beauty, ceramic and glass urns are generally used for display either in the home or in a cemetery columbarium.

 
Cultured Stone Urn

Cultured urns are manufactured from a variety of synthetic materials and are intended to resemble urns made of other natural products such as marble, granite, ceramic, wood and bronze. They are used for both burial and home placement.

Keepsake Urns

Keepsake Urns & Jewelry

Family members or special friends often want to memorialize their loved ones by retaining a small portion of the cremated remains. A variety of small keepsake urns and pendants are available for this purpose.
