Minimalist Butternut Wood Cremation Urn with Gold Leaf Detail

Introducing my latest minimalist butternut wood cremation urn, adorned with delicate gold leaf details.


The application of gold leaf (imitation) in the cracks and imperfections of the wood echoes the Kintsugi method, an ancient Japanese art that celebrates imperfections and reveals the beauty within them. Embracing the philosophy that perfection does not exist, both in nature and in humans, this urn exemplifies the belief that beauty emerges from imperfections and traces of life. I use the imitation gold leaf that is actually brass (copper and zinc), being careful of the ethical sourcing of materials.


Crafted entirely from butternut wood, this urn of minimalist design is a true tribute of nature's splendor symbolizing the beauty found in the imperfections of life. The wood's natural beauty is enhanced by the meticulous attention to detail and the delicate addition of gold leaf, creating a truly unique and meaningful piece to honor the memory of your loved one.


Finish :

A high-quality, eco-friendly finish is applied by hand in several layers. This process not only preserves the wood but also highlights its natural beauty. The finish adds a gentle sheen, allowing the rich tones and beautiful grain of the butternut to shine through. This environmentally-friendly finish ensures that the urn is protected and maintains its luster and beauty.


Dimensions : 6 3/4" x 6 3/4" x 8 1/8"

Capacity for the ashes : 200 cubic inches
