What's So Special About A Bronze Urn?
Bronze is superior to iron in nearly every application and will usually result some of the heaviest cremation urns on the market, weighing in the range of 25-45 pounds. Additionally, bronze cremation urns command a higher price than others due to the level of artistry involved in their creation.
American artists use both the ancient lost wax and casting styles to produceW these beautiful unique urns. Natural finishes, highly polished or painted surfaces, as well as an aged or patterned patina are available.
The complexity of the casting process also factors into why these urns are more expensive compared to others. This process takes 2-4 weeks from start to finish. You can learn more about the art of the lost wax process here.
A bronze urn will last forever and can serve as a monument or highly stylized memorial for your loved one. Bronze is easy to clean and care for.
