It is said that a person who works with his hands is a laborer, a person who works with his hands and mind is a craftsman, and those who work with their hands, mind and heart are artists.
Cremation Urns of Vermont was founded in 1991 by a Vermont licensed Funeral Director who noticed the poor quality, mostly imported, over priced product that was available. There was a need for a high quality cremation urn with distinctive styling, which would be built in the United States, sold at reasonable prices, and delivered in a timely manner. The result was "Cremation Urns Of Vermont" where we manufacture a large selection of quality stone and hardwood urns, made in Vermont where the old fashioned work ethic still exists. From our humble beginning we have evolved into the largest cremation urn manufacturer in the state of Vermont.
Our marble and granite urns are made by a forth generation skilled stone worker, from the highest quality stone available. We use, whenever possible, Vermont quarried stone such as Verde' Antique and Danby White Marble, and "Rock of Ages" Barre Gray Granite, as well as selected imported granite such as Absolute Black and Blue Pearl. Variations in color, and veining are visible proof that the urns are made of genuine quarried stone which is over 300 million years old. In no way is the strength, quality, or beauty of the stone affected by these natural markings. Since no two stones are identical, each urn is as unique as a fingerprint.
The etched and painted stone urns are hand etched and hand painted by a talented Vermont artist (see Jackie above). Custom designs are available.
All our wooden urns are built by an old time wood professional who does the finest work we have seen. Our standard offering is cherry, oak, butternut, maple, pine and mahogany and we are presently trying to purchase Birds Eye Maple, though it is extremely scarce. Most of our wood urns feature our exclusive flocking process on the interior so that cremated remains never come into contact with unfinished wood.
Our stained glass front panels are made by a talented artist who assembles each piece one at a time. The front panel is then sent to our wood mill where Bob builds it into an integral part of the urn.
Names and dates can be etched on any urn for a nominal charge of $35.00.
All urns are approximately 210 cubic inches in volume and are shipped, in a velvet presentation bag, via UPS ground at no extra charge.
If the urn you choose bears the name "Cremation Urns Of Vermont", it carries our commitment to quality. From the initial design to the meticulous attention to detail during our hand finishing process, our goal is to provide you with the best product possible at a reasonable price because here at Cremation Urns Of Vermont our reputation is worth more than gold.
