Inclusions * 

Memento considers non-structural inclusions to be assets that accentuate that the wood used is indeed from a formerly living organism. Please indicate that you agree or if you’d prefer wood that is “clear”.

Poplar Preference

Poplar ranges wildly in color: a barely perceptibly greenish off white to mid-toned brownish green, black, purple, yellow, and even red – sometimes all in the same board. If you have a preference, we will do our best to honor it but we cannot guarantee that we will have the exact variation of coloring in stock.


The Meta Cremation Urn is designed and built in Cleveland, Ohio to be substantial in weight and appearance while being within the means of the average consumer.  This combination of contemporary style and warmth in materials invites hands as well as looks.  These tactile experiences are the kind of change consumers are asking for and deserve.

Poplar wood is used for the base and lid in this version of the Meta Urn - the former is fixed in place and latter is pressure fit by means of a simple, yet clever gasket.  The urn bodies are made of 1/4" thick wall aluminum that is powder coated.


Companion urns are more common as a single object.  By maintaining the order from which the urn tops come off of the saw, we are able to keep pairs so that partners may have urns that the grain flows from one to the other and matches on one side.
