Every piece of Burr Elm is unique in terms of figure, patterns and colour variations, it's one of my favourite timbers, full of character, rich with features
and no two pieces are ever the same. During the drying process little cracks and voids open up which in a purely decorative piece wouldn't be a problem but an urn needs to be a secure container so all the voids have been filled with powdered Bronze in two part epoxy, making a feature of them. It has been finished with multiple coats of a very durable hardwax oil which only needs dusting when required.
This urn has enough volume for two sets of ashes.
The Wych Elm lid has a 12 tpi hand cut thread ensuring a secure closure.
