A tree is a life that captures and marks time in wood.
That timeline is both the subject and palette of each Meta Cremation Urn.
YOU ARE BUYING DIRECT FROM A CRAFTSPERSON
Aril Memorial LLC is a legal entity but the person behind it is a craftsman with formal fine art/design training and twenty-five years of practice. We've lost people and pets too and know there is an unmet need for well-made objects of remembrance that have tactile, visual, and spiritual significance.

The Meta Cremation Urn is designed and built in Cleveland, Ohio. Substantial in weight and appearance while being in a price range that is fair for a hand-made, boutique product. This combination of contemporary style and warmth in materials invites hands as well as looks. These tactile experiences are the kind of change consumers are asking for and deserve from the death care industry.
Standard models in Poplar and other domestically available hardwoods are kept in stock in numbers to keep up with demand but we will also be presenting versions that included grain book-matched pairs for couples, live edge series in full and keepsake sizes, and other unusual special offerings as they become available.
Our Cremation Urn Presentation Bags
By partnering with Simple Ecology, we provide a way for the living to reduce their impact on the environment in three ways
- a polyester (petroleum byproduct) bag that would otherwise not be useful does not enter a landfill
- at-grocery use of plastic bags for loose produce is reduced
- increased awareness of plastic bag alternatives that are affordable and have the tare weight printed on the label
This decision was backed by the same rationale that the living have for eating a meal after a funeral: the living go on - as weird as that sometimes feels when you are among them. The living will go to the grocery and can contribute to the well being of our species.
We use electricity, power tools, and other industrial processes in the manufacture of our urns, but we do our best to make as little impact as possible when possible.
