This one of a kind urn was born from a single piece of green wood and transformed into a work of art. Every urn is a UNIQUE, One-Of-A-Kind piece. No two are alike - the shape, size and wood character will always differ.
A keepsake urn is any piece that measures less than full size in terms of internal capacity. Popular if the wishes are to scatter a portion and keep the rest, or when dividing the remains among different family members. Many families obtain a keepsake as a memorial for the home to remember their loved one after the remains have been interred or scattered.

This urn is made of Box Elder wood. Actually a Maple species, it got its name from the wood being similar to boxwood and the leaf to that of the elder. The oldest flutes from the Americas were made of Box Elder. Native Americans used it to make sugar for candies, charcoal for ceremonial painting, tubes for bellows and incense for spiritual medicines. Usually a small, fast-growing and fairly short-lived tree, it grows from 30 to 80 feet tall. Its natural range is from the Atlantic Coast to the Rocky Mountains. Known for its red stain, it is prized for various decorative applications, such as turned items.
This box elder wood came from a tree in downtown Atlanta. In the shadows of Turner Field, where the Braves play, it was removed from the yard of a small house for safety reasons.
