Ceramic cremation urns were the first urns ever created to hold the ashes of the ones we love. Early man discovered that firing the clay at very high temperatures would turn it from something temporary to a sacred vessel that would last for thousands of years. The hundreds of years of experimenting with different firing techniques and coatings (glaze) resulted in many techniques used by today's skilled artisans. Every urn in our selection of handcrafted ceramic urns is unique. We hope you will find the urn that will be a perfect resting place for your loved one or beloved pet.
