Welcome to my rural workshop just NW of Chicago.  I hand craft all manner of human things in wood, metal, & clay.  A frequent request is for cremation urns - from folks like you looking for something different & more expressive.  Here are a dozen of my favorite bronze urn sculptures - perhaps one of them will suit your own need.  I strive for exquisite craftsmanship & simple expressions of beauty & mindfulness.

- DAVID ORTH, designer/craftsman


  • The cremation urn openings are hidden on the bottom of the urns (or on the back as noted) and are sealed tightly with solid brass screws.

  • Personal inscriptions, different sizes, and several colors are available.

  • The bronze urns are suitable for indoors or outdoors in a garden.

  • Standard urns are returnable for any reason whatsoever. 

  • Orth's urns were featured in the Los Angeles Times, October 2015: "Artisanal Urns"

  • Read what regular folks & bigwig critics have to say.
