Top Selling Cremation Urns for 2013
Posted by on
2013 found families searching for and purchasing cremation urns in two broad categories. All of our top sellers for the past calendar year were either:
- Elegant yet affordably priced, or
- Premium with unique designs
The affordably priced urns which, pardon the pun, "earned" top slots included the Hamilton, the Boston II, the Freedom Urn, the Madison, our ever-popular Cedar Urn, and a newcomer, the Biodegradable Scattering Urn in Blue Marble. The premium urns included designs such as our timeless Together Again Companion Urn, the unique Dragonfly Raku Urn, the Bible-shaped Personalized Book urn, and several designs featuing animals and nature, among which the Hummingbird Urn, the Soaring Eagle, the Moonlight Serenade (featuring howling wolves), Deer Urn, and the Hummingbird Ceramic Urn continued to impress our customers.
Here are our top-five bestsellers for 2013:
1. Hamilton Cremation Urn
The Hamilton Cremation Urn perfectly combines elegance, affordability, and good old-fashioned made-in-the-USA craftmanship. Built in an Oregon woodshop from your choice of walnut (pictured above), cherry, or oak wood, the Hamilton is our #1 bestseller for 2013.
2. Together Again Companion Urn
A tender woodcarved scene of an elderly couple, still obviously in love, adorns the Together Again Companion Urn. The couple is walking arm in arm towards the setting sun on their final journey in the 'road home'. This companion sized urn is built to hold the remains of two individuals, often a husband and wife. The scene is laser carved from various hardwoods in their natural colors to produce a lifelike and moving scene.
3. Dragonfly Raku Urn
In Raku firing our ceramic artist takes each piece of pottery from the kiln red hot, the molten glaze silken and glowing. Then it is placed in a bed of straw or leaves in an air-tight container. The dry plant material immediately bursts into flame and the “reduction chamber” is sealed. The flame and the smoking, oxygen starved atmosphere transform the glaze surface creating the unique, seemingly ancient, colors and textures of raku. The beautiful dragonfly image adorning the front of the Dragonfly Raku Urn combines with the unique variations of each vessel to create a true work of ceramic art.
4. Boston II Cremation Urn
The Boston II Cremation Urn is another budget-friendly combination of timeless design and affordable craftmanship. The simple and beautiful Victorian design is handcrafted in the USA from your choice of Cherry or Walnut hardwoods and a lovely finish.
5. Soaring Eagle Cremation Urn
The Soaring Eagle Cremation Urn is another "dimensional" woodcarved urn, crafted to perfection with an iconic scene of an eagle soaring high above the trees with a mountain range in the background. A beautiful memorial urn for nature lovers, hikers, military service members, and more.
Additional top sellers, not mentioned above, include our collection of biodegradable memorial tree urns, which utilizes the remains to help nourish and grow a memorial tree, the lovely woodcarved Companion Urn with 3 Dimensional Scene, the Bicycle Urn Road Home for cycling enthusiasts, our Memory Chest & Urn Combo which features an urn compartment along with a memory keepsake area on top, and, for pets, the Engraved Photo Pet Urn.
