For Earth the strong natural merino wool colours of the ground and vegetation have been chosen and the design for this urn incorporates some coloured silk fibres too. Pleasing perhaps for someone in tune with their surroundings, or a resting place for a keen gardener, walker or nature lover? The lid for earth is held by ribbons. If you would prefer a wooden closure, please see Air for illustration. The wood will be coloured to tone with Earth and instructions for fitting will be enclosed with your order.
Overall height: approx 28cms
Capacity: 3+litres (see notes on choosing the size of your urn)
The purchase price includes a small handmade book for memories or messages and soluble inner bag for ashes, packaging and delivery. Whenever possible I use recycled packaging – please advise if you prefer new wrappings. Please be sure to keep the wooden closure pieces (if chosen) and the ashes bag out of reach of children for safety reasons.
The little book will be either rectangular or square, depending on paper supplies and either creamy white or will include some earthy shades to match your urn. These books are created by a fellow feltmaker who loves making these coptic-bound books. The spine may be covered or open to show the details of the binding.
