Butternut and Walnut Urn with Keepsake Tray and Gold Leaf

Here is a truely unique funeral urn, made from butternut wood and black walnut with a touch of gold leaf detailing and a keepsake tray. This urn features a special memory compartment designed to personalize your tribute and commemorate the precious memories of your loved one.


Carefully integrated into the design in the top part of the urn, this compartment provides space for photographs, sweet words, farewell messages, or small meaningful objects with sentimental value. This addition allows you to create a sincere tribute that reflects the life and legacy of your dear departed.


I always love the combination of butternut wood and black walnut. It consistently creates a harmonious blend of rich and warm tones with a beautiful balance of wood grains, reflecting the natural beauty of these magnificent materials. The addition of a touch of gold leaf in the "imperfections" of the wood echoes the Kintsugi method, an ancient Japanese art that celebrates imperfections and reveals the beauty they hold. Embracing the philosophy that perfection does not exist, both in nature and in humans, this urn illustrates the belief that beauty emerges from imperfections and the traces left by life. For this technique, I use an imitation gold leaf that is actually brass (copper and zinc), attentive to the ethical sourcing of materials.


Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, this funeral urn is finished with eco-friendly oil applied by hand in multiple layers. The smooth and satin finish enhances the natural beauty of the woods, the depth of their colors, and highlights their intrinsic qualities. The interior has an additional layer of beeswax that is polished into a soft surface, offering a timeless and respectful final resting place for the ashes of your loved one.

Interior dimensions of the memory compartment: 5 5/8" x 4 5/8" x 1"
