Cloisonné Memorial Urn: Going Home
Beautiful handmade Cloisonné Memorial Urn.
If you want to keep, rather than scatter ashes the Cloisonné Memorial Urn is the perfect vase.
A Cloisonné memorial urn is a wonderful way of keeping your loved one’s ashes. It holds one adult set of ashes and comes in an easy-to-carry box.
Dimensions: Height 28cm x Width 18cm (11″ x 7″)
Capacity: 215 cubic inches or 3.5 litres – suitable for the ashes of one person.
Handmade from brass with a Cloisonné design. This is a beautiful and ancient technique: the artisan-maker will shape wire to the design then using a porcelain enamel paint on layers until they are the same depth as the wire, creating a unique and stunning piece.
They all feature a screw lid so your loved one’s ashes can be kept securely inside. Due to the handmade nature of the product Cloisonné vases vary very slightly from one to another, but this is the nature of being hand crafted.
Cloisonné is a way of enamelling an object, (typically made of copper) whereby fine wires are used to delineate the decorative areas (cloisons in French, hence Cloisonné) into which enamel paste is applied before the object is fired and polished.
Keeping the ashes
Many people keep their loved one’s ashes at home, some because they are not sure what to do with them, some because they are not yet ready to do something with them and some simply want to keep them close by, in the house.
Sometimes well-meaning friends will give advice such as ‘it’s time to move on’ or ‘you’ll feel better if you scatter/bury them’.
But only you will know how you feel about the loss of your loved one and only you will know when and if the time is right to do something with their ashes.
Until then these urns can keep the ashes safely and discreetly at home without you having to explain your reasons to anyone, if someone admires the beautiful urn then you can choose to tell them what it contains.
Splitting the ashes
As long as there are no religious reasons why not consider splitting a small amount of ashes between family or friends? If they are given in a beautiful container they can provide a touching gift whilst you keep most of the remainder at home. Cloisonné Memorial Urns have matching keepsake hearts and memorial candle holders that are perfect for passing a token amount of ashes on to the other people in your loved-ones life. Doing so will give you more time to decide what you want to do with your ashes as your feelings may change over time.
