Cloisonne cremation urns and keepsakes all begin with a solid copper form. The design is then welded on using flexible copper wire. After the wire is attached, colorful enamel is placed in the spaces, similar to doing a paint by number. With these kinds of cremation containers and urns, the enamel hardens as it dries and then the piece is fired, polished, and checked for any blemishes. The enamel helps create a scratch resistant coating on the surface and the enamel colors are eye-catching and vibrant. Each cloisonne urn and keepsake is a bonafide masterpiece. Cloisonne cremation urns are part of an ancient and traditional process that has been mastered by artisans in one area of northern China. These cremation containers and urns offered by OneWorld Memorials are all hand made with care in a large variety of designs and colors.
