Black Oakwood and Metal "Meta" Cremation Urn
This modern black wood and metal cremation urn stands out for its contemporary look and solid feel. The base and lid are made from oakwood and finished in a faux shou sugi ban, a traditional Japanese technique which uses shellac, milk paint and linseed oil to blacken the wood.
The urn's lid is pressure fit with a simple (yet clever) gasket, ensuring a secure closure, no tools required.
- Base and lid are made from Oakwood and the body is metal
- Made with the greatest of care in Cleveland, Ohio
Cremation Urn Size: 200 cubic inches. This urn is suitable for a loved one with a weight of 200 pounds or less before cremation.
Cremation Urn Dimensions: 6”x6”x10”
*Couples looking for a contemporary companion urn can purchase two Meta urns instead. By maintaining the order from which the urn tops come off the saw, we are able to keep pairs so that partners may have urns that the grain flows from one to the other and matches on one side.
