Cremation Urns of Vermont was founded in 1991 by a Vermont licensed Funeral
Director who noticed the poor quality, mostly imported, over priced product
then available. There was a need for high quality distinctively styled cremation
urns, which would be built in the United States, sold at a reasonable price, and
delivered in a timely manner. The result was "Cremation Urns Of Vermont".
Here we manufacture a large selection of quality stone and hardwood urns, built
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 (see Craig above), from the highest quality stone available. We use,
whenever possible, Vermont quarried stone such as Verde' Antique and Danby
White Marbles, and "Rock of Ages" Barre Gray Granite. We also use 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, rather 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 (see Bob above)
who does the finest work we have seen. Our standard offerings are cherry,
oak, maple and pine. Most of our wood urns feature our exclusive flocking
process on the interior so that cremated remains never come into contact with
Our stained glass front panels are made by a talented glass artist (see Suzy
above), 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.
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.
