This handmade Irish Bog Oak Urn - The Mighty Oak -has been made as a one-off by our national award-winning Artisan and master craftsman, Seamus Cassidy
. This urn is individually created.
The detailing includes a Connemara Marble Insert, rebated into the top of the Urn, a Turned wooden disc embellished with a bog oak disc, and the wording engraved around the top of the wooden disc in curved lettering involving 4 different skilled craftsmen in four locations co-ordinated by Irish Urns on your behalf.
When you order this particular Urn, Irish Urns and Memorial Trees

This is unique as the individual handwork and the different wood grain means there is only one on the planet, the bog oak detailing is discrete but it enhances the Urn and literally means the Urn is actually a piece of ancient Ireland!
The body of the Urn is made from Oak and is a precision piece, a treat to hold. The corner slips and the side handles are crafted from a 3-5,000-year-old Kells Bog Oak
tree, which was unearthed from Seamus's family farm in Kells Co. Meath when the bogland was drained many, many years ago and not far from the land the book of Kells was found.
A true work of art, created by hand with a level of care and detail rarely found. This wooden cremation Urn is strong and elegant and securely loads from the base.
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 hours of craftsmanship.
The color of the Irish Bog Oak Urn 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 a scorched timer or bleached wood to further enhance his creations.
A true perfectionist, Seamus
insists on taking responsibility for the quality of each Urn piece from tree to its final home.
