Segmented Woodturning Urns
Segmented urns are made from multiple pieces or blocks of wood, assembled together, and turned on a lathe to shape. You can see the grains of wood in each piece as you look at the completed cremation urn. The artist will select each individual block for its beauty and grain pattern. The end result is quite stunning. Because segmented woodturning urns are made from smaller blocks, the artist can incorporate multiple wood types to create designs and patterns in the urn.
Urns Turned from a Single Piece of Wood
Our most popular wood turned urns are those crafted from a single piece of wood. These beautiful and artistic wooden urns start as wood from a tree that has fallen naturally. The artist finds and recovers this wood, ensuring that no trees are cut down to produce the urn. The wood is then cut down to the basic shape, hollowed out, and turned on a lathe until it resembles the stunning wood turned urns you see here.
Wood Urns Turned on a Lathe
The unifying factor in these memorials is that they are wood turns turned on a lathe. The wood is rotated on a lathe, which spins as the artist cuts away bits of the wood using a cutting tool. Each urn is thus painstakingly and artfully crafted by hand. These memorial are the perfect combination of the natural beauty of wood plus the artistry of the woodworker's lathe-turning skills.
