The individual pieces of these segmented vessels just glows with a iridescent appearance when light rays hit it.. Crafted from fine hardwoods from around the USA, this beautiful urn is made of cherry, with accents of walnut creating a cross pattern. Just like your loved one, each of my urns is exceptional and in a class of its own. The warmth of the wood will have you reminiscent of your loved one every time you look at this vessel. This beautiful urn is made from 226 pieces of wood that are meticulously cut and pieced together before being turned to this exceptional piece of art. It takes more than 20 hours to create each of these stunning works of art. These urns are not mass-produced and each is handcrafted one at a time.
The lid is easily threaded on or off. The inside is finished with an oil and wax finish and the outside has multiple hand rubbed layers of an oil finish with a wax polish. Each urn is signed and I can add a name (up to 8 letters) if you would like.
Wood is a natural product that has unique grain, minuscule imperfections and discolorations. This is what makes each urn unique and different, just like your loved one. Cleaning instructions: Wipe with a dust cloth or feather duster for minor cleaning. A liquid wax like Pledge or Liquid Gold is fine a few times a year.
A good rule for sizing urns is one pound of Body Weight equals ~one cubic inch of cremated remains
