These urns that I make are 100% biodegradable. Each urn is made by my hands, with love and care. I choose materials that are from the earth and will naturally return to the earth… recycled porcelain clay, and recycled paper is the foundation of each urn. Materials are then gathered from the woods, fields, and garden. I use pine needles, leaves, wildflowers, cultivated flowers, and grasses… all leaving their mark on the urn. The patterns and colors are cut out from paper which I hand-paint using soy based biodegradable paints. Some of the urns include yarns, or threads which are also biodegradable.
The urn can be placed in a body of water and will degrade within a few hours, or it can be buried and will eventually degrade naturally. If you choose to keep the urn until family decisions are made they are durable enough to stay on a shelf for years to come.
Each urn is truly one of a kind, therefore quite individual. The urn that is pictured here is the exact urn you will receive.
This urn is named Heavenly Day, It measures. 4" W x 6" L x 7"H and will hold 55 cubic inches**.
