ceramic cremation urns
The OneWorld Memorials collection of ceramic cremation urns for ashes comes to us from across the world: Turkey, China, India, California, and Minnesota, to name a few. 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 methods first developed thousands of years ago and are a rare glimpse into global cultural history. For millennia, ceramic urns have been molded and crafted, designed and painted using the same methods artisans use in the present day. Their durability, adaptability and beauty have ushered ceramic funeral urns into a rarefied category: a precious art form that remains both current and functional to this day. It 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, they were used, specifically, in Athens 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 include 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.
