Cremation urns have been around for centuries as beautiful tools for assuring that a person's memory lasts for the ages, and our urns are participate fully in the age-old traditions surrounding urns.
The tradition of cremation urns dates back to at least the Ancient Greeks who made cremation urns from a special type of urn called a lekythos. Many of our urns follow the Greek traditions and also capture the special history of urns that have inspired a number of great literary works over the centuries. Most notably, perhaps, is John Keats's "Ode to a Grecian Urn," which classically relates the unique décor of almost every funeral urn ever made to mankind's eternal struggles with mortality. And, in 1658, English writer Thomas Browne explored similar themes about urns in his Hydriotaphia or Urn Burial, a classic work prompted by the discovery of a Bronze Age cremation urn in Norfolk, England are reminiscent of those, and other, legendary works.
Though many have the same basic purpose, storing the ashes of the deceased and are also all as unique as the people they memorialize.
