Ceramic is known for its adaptability, durability and beauty and has played a key role in many cultures as an artistic medium for millennia.

Ceramic - A Distinguished History

The ceramic cremation urns we see today are direct descendants of those first developed thousands of years ago to hold the ashes of the fallen. Old ceramic urns are a rare glimpse into global cultural history, telling a story about the time when the deceased passed away. For millennia, ceramic urns have been molded and crafted, designed and painted using the same methods artisans use in the present day. The durability, adaptability and beauty of these urns have ushered ceramic funeral urns into a rarefied category: a precious art form that remains both current and functional to this day. Cremation and burial remains a key part of society and culture around the globe. Ancient cultures used ceramic cremation urns in their funeral rites regularly. It is said that in Greece, the urns were used specifically in the Athens area during the rise in democratic ideals and governing within the city.

In our modern times, porcelain and ceramic funeral cremation urns allow for an alternative to metal permanent urns as they are sturdy, waterproof and can be sealed with adhesive. They come in a wide variety of sizes and designs, ranging from small to large and even include a variety of companion urns for two or more.

Our selections include:

  • Asian inspired designs
  • Animal motifs such as the horse, the elephant or delicate birds
  • Nature themes of leaves, trees, flowers, etc.
  • Musical motifs
  • Butterflies and dragonflies

Urns of Clay and Ceramic - An Ancient Art

Ceramic cremation vases, handcrafted from clay, remain an interesting connection to history and to the Earth. Clay is an abundant natural resource found all over the world and can be viewed as an alternative to wooden cremation urns as well as to metal or stone cremation urns. Ceramic, as a material, provides some of the most original and artistic urns for ashes available on the market today. Not only is the use of ceramics an ancient art, but unlike cremation urns of metal, ceramic can also be uniquely shaped and colored, allowing for a more decorative finish. Generally speaking, ceramic urns and clay urns tend to be far more decorated than other types of urns, making them equal parts functional and decorative. Because the use of ceramic has been documented throughout history, it is proven to be a viable, functional and historically relevant choice in cremation container. Ceramic cremation urns for ashes offer a secure resting place for a loved one in the home, office or columbarium and are easily personalized.
