Meta – Poplar Wood Cremation Keepsake Urn

2 reviews


Quarter-inch thick (0.635 cm) antique bronze powder-coated metal walls and a substantial slab of poplar wood make this keepsake urn stand out for its contemporary look and solid feel.  Made with the greatest care in Cleveland, Ohio.

  • ~18 cubic inches (294 cubic cm)
  • 3″ x 3″ x ~6″ (7.62 cm x 7.62 cm x ~15.24 cm)
  • approximately 3 lbs (1.37 kg)

In stock (can be backordered)

Aril Memorial considers non-structural inclusions to be assets that accentuate that the wood used is indeed from a formerly living organism. Please indicate whether you agree or prefer wood that is “clear.”


The keepsake-sized version of the Meta Urn is intended for distributing cremated remains among family members, for small four-legged family members, or the unfortunate situations of infant loss - at approximately 18 cubic inches (294 cubic cm).

Poplar wood is used for the base and lid - the former is fixed in place, and the latter is pressure fit by means of a simple gasket.  The urn bodies are made of 1/4" thick wall aluminum that is powder coated.


Bookmatched Poplar wood pairs and groupings can be requested when cremated remains are distributed among family members.

Poplar Colors

Poplar ranges wildly in color: a barely perceptibly greenish off-white to mid-toned brownish green, black, purple, yellow, and even red - sometimes all in the same board. If you have a preference, we will do our best to honor it, but we cannot guarantee that we will have the exact variation of coloring in stock. (DARKER and WILDER options are currently unavailable as of December 2020)

Grain-Matched Pair Option

By maintaining the order from which the urn tops come off of 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. Simply request this in your order of two or more in the order notes during checkout.

Organic Cotton Presentation

Aril Memorial 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.

    I cannot fully express how profoundly beautiful this urn is. Chris’ unparalleled customer service made all the difference in this hard time for my family and I losing my brother. Everytime I look at it I am incredibly thankful to have found Memento Memorials.

Q & A

Could I get some more information about what a non-structural inclusion means? For your meta poplar collection how does it work/look exactly? Thank you. Oscar asked on June 10, 2023
