Determining the quantity of Ash, you will receive from the funeral crematory can be difficult to determine because each crematory service process vary. Also, variations in the deceased, bone structure, age, height and sex will determine the size urn you require. 

Typically, our large adult urns have a volume capacity of approximately 200-220 cubic inches (3.0 – 3.4L) and this is what you will require to hold the ashes of an adult. We freely exchange if you need a different size urn, but it must be unused and returned in its original condition. Alternatively, we recommend that you buy the next size up if you are unsure. 

Average height adult: 152 cm-180 cm will need a 200-220 cubic inch / 3.1 – 3.5L cremation urn.

Tall adults: 182 cm’s and over will need an urn from 220 cubic inch / 3.6L

This is an approximate guide only and please contact your crematorium or funeral director to confirm exactly what size urn you need to purchase.

Cloisonne is a unique art form that originated in Beijing. Each urn is individually hand-crafted so each urn will be unique in design and colouring creating sophisticated and extraordinary works of fine art. Cloisonne Cremation Urns are created using an intricate metalworking process and multiple layers of fired enamel over copper or brass. Model Hammering: The process is to form copper pieces into various shapes with a hammer according to a design, joining them under high temperature. Filigree Welding: In filigree welding the artist pinches and curves copper filigree into delicate flower patterns, pasting them onto the copper molds. Possibly the most challenging step of the procedure, heating to 900 degrees centigrade, firms the metal. Enamel Filling: Through this interesting procedure, the cloisonne wears a coloured wrap. Handicrafts specialists fill enamel glaze into lattices formed by fine-spun filigrees. Just one filling is not enough – the filigrees extrude, and the surface is dull. They have to fuse powdery glaze in the smelter at 800 degrees centigrade, then take the object out and repeat the process three or four times until its surface becomes smooth.

You have a choice and right to have your own urn to memorialise your loved one and most Funeral Companies understand this and do not mind.
