SKU: urn_ee_elder

This gorgeous, hand-crafted piece of woodwork can be used as either a keepsake box for a collar, tags or other small memento or as a pet urn.  This piece  comes to you from a remnant from the artist's friend, Seth's, small wood mill in Oregon that deals only with trees that are removed due to illness, disease or damage.

Quietly dynamic, it features almost a shimmering quality as the light  moves across the grain. Along the "front" of the box there are remnants of the burl. The urn to the left is the exact piece you will be receiving; it is completely unique and one-of-a-kind.  

Please note:
While wood is drying in nature, cracks develop in some areas. These natural characteristics are taken into account while carving and creating each piece. No cracks  will compromise the integrity of the urn; it is completely sound with no cracks all the way through the side walls nor lid. The urn you receive is dry and stable & any cracks will not get any larger.

Exterior Dimensions: 6" x 3.5" x 3.25"
Interior Dimensions: 3.25" x 2.75" x 2.5"
Holds up to 22 pounds of live weight if being used as an urn.
We recommend placing your pet's ashes in a pouch prior to placing the cremains within this box. View our fabric Pet Cremains Bags here. You can also permanently seal your piece with a bead of wood glue or super glue. Click here for Urns FAQ's.

Finish and Cleaning Instructions:
Because your urn or keepsake box is all-natural, it is finished with Clapham's Salad Bowl Finish. This is an edible beeswax/carnauba/mineral oil finish and is suitable for all things wooden. The finish protects the wood and gives it a soft lustrous shine. We recommend cleaning your piece with an all natural wood finish like walnut oil or lemon oil. Any furniture polish can be used though. 

This piece ships within 2 business days. Expedited shipping is available during check out.

Earnie, Hearther and Myrtle JoMeet Your Artist
Earnie and Heather have been bringing new life to old wood for over 20 years. Residing in the Olalla Valley, Oregon, this talented husband and wife team collect driftwood from coastal waters, beautiful streams, their friends' backyards, or sustainably harvested wood.  No living trees are ever cut for the intention of creating their fine boxes. Each box is crafted to maintain the natural integrity of the wood's shape, color, grain and texture.

Their search for wood often brings them to beautiful locations. And like all of the artist we work with here at Peternity, they love their to bring along their pup Mrytle Jo whenever they can. Here they are to the right collecting driftwood on the Coquille River.
