This Photo sums up exactly why I make Urn decoys. Photo by StarMile Photography

      Do you have someone or something special you want to remember in an honorable way? Perhaps an Urn decoy is the answer. The loss of a family member, be it two or four legged, is a difficult time. I've been in that position myself. These experiences are the genesis for the work you see here.



   A specially designed chamber inside each hollow decoy holds remains or other keepsakes safely and with respect. These style decoys can be used for hunting, or made to sit perfectly on your shelf.




    Creating a decoy Urn, Especially a working one, involves more than just putting remains in a hollow decoy. I've created working Urns made to last a lifetime ( with the guarantee to match) for clients all across the United States and other countries. As a professional carver with over 20 years experience, you can rest assured your Urn will be completed with the respect and artistry it deserves.

As with all my decoys, my Urns are carved from carefully selected wood and hand painted with artist oil paint, simply the best materials available.  This combination creates a Decoy that will last for generations.
The Wood for my Urns is naturally insect and water resistant, durable, and renewable. Unlike Cork composite or foam which are man made materials that can crumble, waterlog and are only as good as the glue that holds them ( or not ) together.




     Each Urn is designed and Custom carved by me, not mass produced. Since each is one of a kind, Any species can be made, besides those shown here. You will be dealing directly with me, the artist, and I'm Happy to honor Special Requests Such as engraving and custom Stands.

     My Urns are priced similarly to my hunting decoys and there is never an upcharge for these most meaningful of projects.  



Please contact me for quotes and pricing information, or to talk about the process of making an Urn decoy should you have any questions.
