Hard Maple is significantly harder and generally more bright white than Soft Maple. Rolling pins, flooring, bowling alleys, butcher block counters are common usages. A cremation urn doesn’t need to be functionally hard as those items. The option is offered for aesthetic reasons. Sugar Maples are the only tree that this material comes from and has a slightly higher market price.

Soft maple is mellower, slightly browner, and interesting mineral streaking is more common. The “soft” designation is only in comparison to Hard Maple and has a moderate hardness wood often used in furniture. This material is derived from a variety of Maple species.


The Meta Cremation Urn is designed and built in Cleveland, Ohio to be substantial in weight and appearance while being within the means of the average consumer.  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.

Maple wood is used for the base and lid in this version of the Meta Urn - the former is fixed in place and latter is pressure fit by means of a simple, yet clever gasket.  The main body of the urn is composed of powder-coated aluminum.

Memento has partnered with Simple Ecology to provide urn presentation bags that can have a second, productive life as a produce bag for reducing plastic use in the grocery.
