Cremation Urns in Bronze

I am introd My friend Deniseucing my line of artistic funerary urns. I recently created my first urn, The Flower, for a friend who died. There was comfort in the thought of containing her ashes in a beautiful vessel. She was a lifelong devotee of art and creativity and had a sure and quirky style of her own, making her home a sight to see. I like to think that she would have liked her urn.
  

My urns are available in three designs: Flowers; Leaves; and Tendrils and in three different sizes.

You have a choice between two materials: bronze or ceramic. Each option comes with a vast variety of patinas and glazes to choose from, all of which are interchangeable. The photos are examples of only a few. I will be happy to discuss the numerous possibilities with you.

The bronzes are cast in the ancient form of Lost Wax Method to produce museum quality, fine art castings.

I am also available for creating completely customized, one-of-a-kind pieces.

All urns are cast to order and will require 4 to 6 weeks to complete.

Frequently Asked Questions

What size urn will I need?

In general, you can calculate what size urn you need by converting the amount of pounds the person whose ashes will be in the urn from pounds to cubic inches. A person who weighed 160 lbs. will need an urn with the volume capacity of at least 160 cubic inches. It is absolutely fine to use an urn that measures more than the person's weight. You may want to add mementos or other objects that hold meaning for you to the ashes.

What are Keepsake Urns?

With families living far from each other you may want to consider sharing the ashes and storing them in the small Keepsake urns. They usually hold between 15 and 30 cubic inches of ashes. Another family may decide to scatter part of the ashes and store the remainder in a small Keepsake urn.

Can I seal the urn?

Urns can be sealed with easily available clear silicone caulking.

Can you include a name and inscription?

Yes, at the wax stage I can carve a name and/or a brief inscription on the bottom of the urn or on a blank space that gets covered by the lid. I'll be glad to discuss this or other possibilities with you.
