Cremation Urns--Temporary Containers

 

by Meierjohan-Wengler

Temporary containers are designed to temporarily hold the cremated remains, as the name indicates.These containers are often used when the remains are going to be scattered, or when the family has not made a final decision on a permanent cremation urn.

Meierjohan-Wengler offers two temporary containers in sheet bronze and plastic. These urns are not recommended for display, but they're meant to be used by the crematories as a temporary measure for housing the cremated remains.

A new type of temporary container offered by Meierjohan-Wengler is the Earthurn series.

Reflect Earthurn
Temporary Container for Cremated Remains

The Reflect Earthurn focuses on memories of the life. The soft, rich silk bag symbolizes both letting go (through the ritual of scattering) and holding on (by the retaining of a memento).

Personal mementos or expressions can be placed in the silk bag for the family to keep. A picture frame is provided to further personalize the Reflect Earthurn.

 

 

When the silk bag is removed, a simple, hand crafted temporary container is revealed. The lid is easily removed to facilitate the scattering ritual. Cremated remains are contained in a natural fabric bag.

The Reflect Earthurn is an environmentally friendly, durable container made from a renewable resourse using a centuries old technique.

 

 

Embrace Earthurn

The rich, warm colors and expressive presentation of the Embrace Earthurn celebrate the vivacious spirit of an individual who embraced life.

Participants are encouraged to add personal notes as expressions to the loved one. The picture frame incorporated into the top allows for further personalization.
