Minimalist Birdseye Maple Cremation Urn

Minimalist Birdseye Maple Cremation Urn

This minimalist cremation urn is crafted entirely from beautiful Birdseye maple that has been oxidized.


The unique color of the urn is achieved through an oxidation technique. The wood reacts naturally with iron acetate (vinegar and iron), resulting in this distinctive coloring. Sometimes more purple or blue, golden or silvery, yellow or greenish like this particular piece, it is difficult to precisely describe the color effects of oxidation, and each piece treated with this technique reveals its unique tones that change in different light, and truly comes to life on a white background. The combination of this coloring with the visual qualities of Birdseye maple gives much depth in the tones and beautiful wood grain.


I love this technique that renders a very contemporary look to the urn, even though this process is often used in old wood restoration to reveal a patina that has developed over time.


To ensure the preservation and enhancement of the wood's natural allure, a high-quality and environmentally-friendly oil finish is applied by hand in several layers. This finish not only adds a subtle sheen but also brings out the inherent colors and textures of the woods. The result is a soft and satiny feel that exudes refinement without pretension. This care is extended to the interior of the urn where a final layer of natural beeswax is applied, giving a smooth and polished surface to welcome and protect your loved one's ashes.


Outer dimensions: 7" x 7" x 7 ½".

Capacity for the ashes: 215 cubic inches.


Please note that the flower stand depicted is not included with the urn. However, if you wish to purchase one or customize the urn with different elements such as bookmarks or reliquaries, we offer the possibility to personalize orders. Please feel free to reach out for any inquiries.
