Frank Lloyd Wright
For thousands of years, humans have cherished wood for its functional and artistic characteristics. It has had a deep impact on our species and has had an essential part in our religions and our ceremonies. In our modern and often impersonal world, wood provides a most dignified, elegant and protective container for your loved one’s remains.
Your urn has been handcrafted from a single block of wood obtained from a tree felled due to disease, weather or “progress”. The wet (or green) wood has been carefully shaped and hollowed. It has been slowly dried over a period of weeks, and then it was placed back on the lathe for final shaping, sanding and finishing. The final step was crafting a attractive threaded wooden lid to secure its precious contents.
