Welcome to our gallery.
The Earthen Vessel is a manufacturer and distributor of hand-crafted funeral urns and keepsakes. Founders, Francine Hampson-Reid and John Reid, both artists, have selected Canadian artisans from coast to coast for their portfolio.
With cremations in Canada now surpassing full-casket burials (60% overall in Canada and as high as 80% in some provinces), we offer single edition, hand crafted vessels that are exquisitely made and uniquely Canadian.
Complimenting the view that death becomes a celebration of life, each vessel is a personal expression, some provocative and all uplifting. Our portfolio can be viewed by clicking on the URNS tab above. And if you require further information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
