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.
Text, graphic elements, and photographic engraving are available HERE.
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. 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.
