It took me 22 months to find the right urn for my son's ashes. I looked at so many. This urn is gorgeous! Just perfect for us. Thank you so much!

Very beautiful, much sturdier build that expected, 1/2" walls. Fit standard box from cremation perfectly, slipped right inside. Note the lid does not have a seal or attachment (magnet etc) so this is meant to take a container, not ashes directly. Our family is very pleased!

John, people will be ticked at me for saying so, but your work should be priced so much higher. The craftsmanship and originality demand proper compensation. My husband's ashes sit in this beautiful urn and instead of being ignored or worse, avoided on a shelf, it has become a focal point of conversation, memory, both happiness and sadness, and ultimately love. Its undulating shape evokes a sense of life, of flow, and of the motion of the natural world. The seamwork is nearly flawless and I am grateful that you've decided to pursue this amazing talent. It helps everyone who visits more easily acknowledge and honor my husband's legacy and life.

Beautiful piece of sculpted art that functions as an urn. I had been looking for many months for a unique, high quality urn without finding anything that I felt was suitable for my needs. I'm very glad to have this urn.

The instant we became aware of John's exceptional talent, our connection with John and Heidi began. John warmly welcomed our questions, described his process and discussed the characteristics of various woods we were considering for our companion urn. As Heidi had so kindly assured us, our urn arrived when promised, in meticulous condition. Surpassing our highest expectations, the elegance and harmony of John's uniquely beautiful, exquisitely finished, environmentally friendly creation took our breath away. We are eternally grateful for the blessing of John and Heidi, and for this most personal, precious work of art.

I am a returning customer, and once again, my family is very pleased by John's work. This is an exquisite piece, which has been finished beautifully to bring out all of the special characteristics of the wood; stunningly hand-crafted art that easily shows the care taken in making it. It helps so much at such a sad time to have something as special as this when the need arose. It was also carefully packed and shipped quickly. Thank you once again John, and I recommend your work to everyone who asks about them in our home.

I am so pleased with this beautiful work of art. Our aunt would have so appreciated the craftsmanship of this. We have another vessel from John and this is very different, but equally beautiful. It arrived so quickly and in perfect condition. Thank you!!!

Absolutely beautiful! The picture doesn't do the depth and richness of the color justice. This is so beautifully made with such obvious care. The wood is gorgeous and incredibly heavy. Super communication from John. My family is so pleased with this, it has helped ease some of the loss, having such a beautiful urn. Thank you so much!!
