Scattering Urns

These urns are designed to make the scattering of ashes more accessible, and an activity that is perhaps done by one person or a group. Ashes may be in one urn or divided into two or more smaller ones. When scattering ashes, be mindful of the weather, in particular, the wind direction. There is no difference between the urns or tubes, just the supplier. Containers are modern prints on 100% biodegradable cardboard.

Water Burial Urns

Many families wish to scatter the ashes of their loved one at sea. The weather at sea can often be unpredictable making scattering ashes on a windy day a difficult experience.

Life Cycle Deep Ocean urns allow you to gently place the ashes into the water. Made from 100% biodegradable paper and cornstarch, the urn begins to break down within minutes of being placed out at sea. You may also wish to do this off a beach or in a stream/river. Be mindful that councils have their own regulations and it is not advisable to try to have a water burial on a public and popular pier such as St Kilda. Use discretion.

Timber Crafted Urn Boxes
by wood turner, Mick White, Coliban.

277 Large and Small Urn Mick White

These hand-crafted urn boxes are made to order by Mick White.

  • Timber may be redgum, black wood, or jarrah, with maple.
  • All timber is retrieved or reclaimed.
  • Choose from a bespoke box with or without clasps.

All urn boxes are made specifically to fit the adult-sized blue box that ashes come in from the crematorium. The ashes box sits inside, and a tray insert is crafted to sit over the top. Keepsakes can be placed on this tray.

To select timber and accessories, please see this document: Timber Urns terminology – Coliban

Mick can also create a smaller box for a baby’s ashes, or a small portion of ashes.

His beautifully created boxes are not only a decorative option in which to store ashes, but they can be displayed at home without it being obvious what is kept inside.
