All of our artistic funeral urns
are inspired by organic textures and motifs. With ethereal finishes
and reflective qualities, this collection of urns will provide the
comfort of memorializing your loved one with a beautiful resting place.
The upper sphere top is meant to contain mementos such as a wedding
ring, a poem or letter, or any meaningful item that will fit through the
1.25" sphere opening. These mementos will be separate from the ashes
that are within a plastic liner bag with twist-tie, in the urn vessel.
People often elect to keep their
loved one's urn nearby, within their home. An
artistic urn such as those in these pages is able to blend discretely
into the home environment, providing loving memories for the family,
while appearing as an artwork to visitors.
family decides to scatter the ashes in a special location. The
intimacy of conducting a scattering ceremony, with only family and
possibly closest friends in attendance, can provide a great deal of
comfort and closure. In the case of scattering, the family may choose to keep only
a small amount of the ashes in a keepsake such as a mini-urn or a keepsake sphere, as a small and permanent memorial within the home. Please see
our Keepsake Urns
pages for small memorial keepsake options. For a scattering
ceremony, the family is advised to assign a family member or close friend to
confirm that scattering is allowed in their selected scattering
location. Bodies of water are usually allowed, as well as private
property, with the owner's permission. Some people choose one of our Scattering Urns
as a vessel from which to release the ashes, after which it may become a
piece of art within their home, or a vase that will recall beautiful
memories every time it's filled with flowers.
Another option for urn placement is placing it into a Columbarium Niche. Our Columbarium Niche Urns
are made to fit within the interior height of a 12" columbarium niche,
as our niche urns are less than 12" in height, and some from the Reflections Series are under 11". Niches are
purpose-built into a wall at a cemetery, either indoors or outdoors, in a
funeral home, or in a church. Putting the urn in an indoor niche gives
friends and family the ability to visit their loved one in quiet,
comfortable and sacred surroundings, where seating is usually available,
at any time the facility is open. If an outdoor columbarium niche is
chosen, then one may visit at any time when the cemetery grounds are
open. In the case of inurning into a columbarium niche, we advise that
the family double-check the interior height of the niche, as well as any
height restrictions presented by the doorway bezel of a glass-front or a
stone-front niche. Especially if there will be an inurning ceremony,
then a little extra height clearance will be needed, to allow for the
dignified placement of the urn into the niche during the proceedings.
Most niches are a standard 12" interior height, and our niche urns are
made to a height of just under 11". It may be helpful to search for an
urn using our web site page Select Urn by Height.
It may also be helpful to search our urn sizes by your loved one's weight - our Cremation Urn by Person's Weight page can be helpful in narrowing down the choices.
In terms of your loved one's unique style, we have search pages to help with finding an urn that best reflects your loved one's enduring spirit. If there is a particular colour that resonated with them, then see our Search Cremation Urn by Colour page. Or, if your loved one was drawn to a certain style or pattern (such as floral or abstract for example), then see our page entitled Urn by Pattern or Style.
