Seamus creates bespoke keepsakes Urns and full-size urns using his decades of experience and mastery of wood. His Urns highlight the beauty of each piece of wood and the fine workmanship can be seen in the texture of each object taking long of hours of craftsmanship.
The color of each piece is enhanced by oiling multiple times to really bring out the natural grain and depth of color and some elements of his work allow him to use scorched timer or bleached wood to further enhance his creations. Our artisan carefully selects and drys his own wood as Seamus insists on taking responsibility for the quality of each piece from tree to its final home.
