There are several materials available to chose from when selecting an urn. The materials used in our range of cremation urns include ceramic, porcelain, wood, metal and various biodegradable materials used for land and sea burials.
What are the different materials used for our urns?
Ceramic urns are truly beautiful, combining classic, almost antique aesthetics with fabulous modern urn designs, these urns for ashes never shy away from the spotlight and become an inspiring, thoughtful addition to your home decor.
We offer a wide range of ceramics, incorporating a variety of firing techniques, from standard ceramics to more intricate Raku and Saggar urns, that require multiple firings to create the desired, unique effect.
Ceramic urns are resilient to weather conditions, as long as any parts that are glued are kept away from moisture. This isn't an issue for urns filled from the base when they are glued and put on a stand that does not build up moisture.
Why should I buy a ceramic urn?
Our ceramic urns are carefully designed by skilled artisans to the highest standards. The elegant and modern design of our ceramic cremation urns allows them to intertwine with the décor of your home.
Ceramic urns are fired at an extremely high temperature giving them a strong resistance to atmospheric influence, meaning they can be safely placed outdoors where they will stand the test of time. See below our Passage Cremation Urn for Ashes.
Why should I buy Porcelain urns?
Why should I buy a Wooden urn?
Wooden urns for ashes require some of the most intricate handiwork and craftsmanship, whether it be a simple wooden box for ashes, an intimate wooden heart urn design with delicate curves, or an outstanding standalone piece with beautiful layering like a Pine cone, there is a varying level of complexity, and we have yet to talk about the different types of woods.
While it is often mistaken as a softwood, lime is actually a hardwood. While hardwoods are more difficult to work with, lime is accessible and versatile, making it a fantastic material for a tribute to your beloved. We also offer Oak, Mahogany, and Walnut, rarer woods that create a completely different aesthetic to Lime. These are seen as premium woods and can be more expensive.
Biodegradable urns for land and sea burials
Our metal urns collection are made from the highest quality metals. They are crafted to be entirely high-end. See below our Heart Cremation Urn for Ashes.
Why should I choose a Metal Urn?
Metal urns are known to be incredibly durable and strong, making them last a lifetime. They are easy to maintain and clean, meaning they can keep a pristine look for an extended period of time. See below our Star Cremation Urn for Ashes.
