Stage 1The meticulous process begins with a gentle hammering to shape an unbreakable solid brass core.


Stage 2Then an intricate design is formed using a precise copper wire netting.

Stage 3Next, chosen colors of enamel are bonded to the core and fired in the kiln. The fire process hardens the finish and smooths the finish to the core.

Stage 4Tthis step is repeated several times to enhance the beauty and durability of the design. The hand laid enamel is unique to each urn.

Stage 5The urn is then gently hand-scored and polished for a smooth surface further exposing the fine copper / bronze wire accentuating the overall appearance.

Stage 6Lastly, the urn is gilded to protect the brass from rust, as well as to create a lasting and bright shining finish. These urns are all individually unique and of fine quality.
