Today, many cremation urns are cheap things made only to sell
FRANKSVILLE, WISC. (PRWEB) July 27, 2013
There is nothing more precious and rewarding than the companionship formed over years of time with a cherished family pet. Just as when a member of the family passes away, the death of a pet can be devastating to its owner, and now, Mood Wood is offering a complete new line of six memorial cremation urns designed to honor the memories of cherished pets. Every single Mood Wood wooden pet cremation urn is a piece of work, a family heirloom that can proudly be displayed in any room of the house to honor the memory of a beloved pet.
All of Mood Wood’s pet urns are constructed with dovetailed joinery and coated with a hand rubbed finish. The artistry in all of the hand cast fine pewter that adorns each wooden cremation urn is Mood Wood’s own creation. They sculpt the first pieces in clay, and then build a master mold that is used to produce the first metal parts. Next they construct a production mold. The custom-made pewter is produced and the flashing must be trimmed, with each piece filed by hand. Then the metal is oxidized. The next process is to tumble the parts in a medium of crushed walnut shells. The final step is applying a clear satin finish to each casting, to prevent tarnishing of the metal that enhances the pet cremation urns.
The handcrafted pet urns offer the same unique closure systems as Mood Wood’s human cremation urns. Unlike traditional wooden on the market, Mood Wood’s handcrafted cremation urns feature a unique locking mechanism known as a Spanish windlass. This closure system has been utilized for centuries and is able to apply thousands of pounds of force.
“For over 25 years the craftsmen at Mood Wood have been creating one-of-a-kind wood products, so pet owners, pet breeders, and all animal lovers can now also be confident in our expertise and the quality of their purchase,” notes Bruce Kiefer, owner of Mood Wood. “Every detail of each handcrafted pet urn is designed and constructed by experienced craftsmen, all of the way down to the metal furnishings.”
Mood Wood is a family owned business that meticulously handcrafts its wooden urns for pets and humans in the countryside of southeast Wisconsin. Bruce and Lucinda Kiefer started designing and handcrafting high quality solid wood office furniture in 1984 and later found a calling to create cherry wood cremation urns, which have been described as heirloom quality, handcrafted with integrity and a commitment to producing the finest wood urns.
Mood Wood reflects the pride that early American craftsmen had in their work. “Today, many cremation urns are cheap things made only to sell,” Kiefer notes. “Mass produced in foreign countries, delivered by the container load. We at Mood Wood prefer the business model of days gone by. Using the skills acquired through a lifetime of diligent work, and the highest quality materials, to produce handcrafted solid wood urns. Our goal is to create a cremation urn in an artistry that reflects your most treasured memories. Our goal is that the completed cremation urn be a work of art.”
