Unfortunately I had to make this Urn for my friend who passed away well before his time, he was only 47 years old. I made this for his son, to put his portion of his fathers remains in. Its made from a piece of Red Cedar that I had at home, and its my first true hollow form, its also the biggest lidded vessel that I have made to date. I thought Id put it here for you all to see.
Thanks for looking.

It’s beautiful and I’m sorry about your friend. His son will treasure this forever.

My sympathy, too young.

Thank you for the kind words….I ended up making a second urn, very similar to this one from the same piece of cedar, for his daughter as well. I of course am sad that I had to make them, however, grateful that I was able to share a gift with the family.

On the technical side of things, I am also proud of my newly discoverd hollowing skills at this moment…Between these two pieces I was able to uncovered a method of hollowing that works for me, where as, before these two pieces I always had trouble hollowing anything larger than a small ring box.
