Ceramic Urns: Available in countless shapes and sizes, our unique cremation urns are made with beautiful enamel that may be painted and designed to create a special and unique memorial for your loved one.
Ceramic may be commonly described as an in-organic and non-metallic solid that is shaped and created by the process of firing in a kiln and subsequent cooling. If you have ever made ceramic pottery or have seen it made on tv, then you are aware of the endless possibilities that are afforded by the use of ceramic.
While many ceramic urns on the market are basic and bland, our offering dares to be contemporary and tasteful. Hand-crafted by the most highly-regarded ceramic urn artists in the world, our handcrafted cremation urns are made with a level of precision and care that may be found nowhere else.
However, if it is something truly unique that you desire, you may be particularly interested in our custom ceramic art urns.
Custom Ceramic Art urns
Our custom art urns are certainly a point of special interest when it comes to memorializing a loved one. Whether you would like to duplicate a beloved tattoo or simply design a simple religious emblem, our artist will work with you to ensure that your custom art urn is the perfect memorial for your loved one.
Creating a Custom Ceramic Art Urn
While our general art urns may be ordered directly from our website, our custom art urns do require a little more information than we are able to gather in a generic on-line order form. If you would like to order a custom art urn, we recommend that you contact a customer service representative at 816-659-6424. Our representative will assess your ideas, obtain any needed photos from you, and pass them along to our artist. Upon receiving your ideas, a proof will be created and provided to you to ensure that both you and the artist are thinking along the same lines. Once we receive your approval we will begin crafting your memorial. From start to finish the process takes approximately 2 weeks.
If you are interested in creating a custom art urn but are uncertain as to the design that you would like, here is a list of common sources of inspiration:
- Favorite tattoos
- Cultural art
- Religious emblems
- Professional insignia
Caring for Ceramic?
Aside from the creativity afforded by the use of ceramic, the material is both low maintenance and popular for modern home décor. And, while your ceramic urn will require little maintenance, it will require a periodic dusting. To clean your ceramic urn, a soft micro-fiber cloth that will trap and remove dust particles without the use of household cleaners is recommended.
Burying a Ceramic Urn
Although ceramic urns are ideal for indoor display, we recommend the use of one of our urn vaults if the piece will be interred by way of land.
What Size Should I Order?
If you are uncertain as to the size of urn that you should select, please note that the industry standard is to allow one cubic inch of space for each pound that your loved one weighed prior to his or her passing.
Each of our unique cremation urns is top loading, available in single, double or keepsake sizes, and comes standard with a lid for securing.
