Not Made in China

Wood Turning on the latheDeciding on how to rest cremains of your loved one is one of the most revered offerings you can do to honor someone special.

Do you know that most of the urns offered on line and sold by funeral homes are made on an assembly line in China or India?   Though some are very pretty, there is really nothing “special” about them.

Appalachia Urns encourages buyers to purchase and support hand-crafted, American made products, where much skill and care goes into the “sacred art of urn making”.  One of a kind urns are as unique as the individual you are memorializing.

You can’t get much more American hand-crafted than an Appalachia Urns.  Each piece is created by wood-turning artist Robert Woods at his workshop, in an old Appalachian tobacco barn.  From cutting a felled tree into manageable sizes, to turning/creating the urn on a wood lathe to the fine finish, these one of a kind, signed originals are a beautiful way to celebrate your beloved and crafted with the utmost care.

If you are in the market for an urn, we hope you will look at some of the hand crafted options that are available through various artists.
