An Age Old Memorial Urn Tradition in Bronze
Bronze urns are carefully crafted to be elegant centerpieces for any memorial display. Much more than simple storage containers for cremation ashes, bronze urns come in two distinct styles. Cast bronze urns are beautifully crafted pottery shapes that can take the look of traditional urns that have been used to memorialize people for centuries. Sculpted bronze urns, on the other hand, take the form of elegant, mini-statues, sculpted to symbolize any number of scenes or shapes.
Made according to the exacting, technical standards of any bronze sculpture, bronze urns make for a special memorial that will preserve a person’s memory, beautifully, for generations to come. Bronze urns are usually elegant enough to be displayed indoors, but also sturdy enough to be shared with the world outdoors. This flexibility makes bronze urns, perhaps, the perfect choice for any memorial need.
Whatever their ultimate destination, bronze urns are particularly appropriate for memorializing a loved-one because they can be personalized. Bronze urns come in a variety of shapes and styles and can be enhanced in a wide variety of beautiful, luxurious colors. Special protective lacquers keep the many color possibilities that bronze urns provide looking bright and shiny for generations to come. Bronze urns can be sculpted into any number of scenes or shapes, and they often take the form of beautiful, elegant small statues that can pay lasting tribute to the people they memorialize.
With their special beauty and elegance, bronze urns are often key centerpieces to gorgeous memorial displays. Bronze urns, for example, are commonly part of elegantly designed memorials in private residences. And bronze urns are also often found in more public displays such as a columbarium.
Though they can be made into an unlimited number of shapes, bronze ash urns are often found in a vase shape, like that of a traditional urn. With this shape, wood urns allow families to participate in the centuries of traditions that urns have inspired. The traditional urn’s shape, for example, has brought forth a number of great literary works, including John Keats’s “Ode to a Grecian Urn,” which classically relates the unique décor of almost every funeral urn ever made to mankind’s eternal struggles with mortality. (That poem, by the way, is said to not be about one particular urn, so it could very well apply to a bronze urn as to any other style of urn.)
Whatever the shape, bronze urns are all manufactured with the greatest of care. Bronze urns require a craftsman’s special touch, and they are often formed from techniques that are hundreds (or possibly even thousands) of years old. This connection with age-old traditions assures that bronze urns always have a timeless quality that is so important for a lasting memorial. Timeless production processes, along with artwork that will surely stand the test of time, are what make bronze urns an excellent choice for many people wanting to give their loved-one’s memories a special touch.
