Modern Cremation Urns by Capsule Urn

Death. As much as we hate talking about it, we know it’s inevitable. And if you’ve ever had to plan a service/funeral/memorial for anyone you know the choices are somewhat, well, same-y. The cremation choices are even fewer for both people and pets. You have your standard metal or porcelain jars and your wood boxes, but what if those just aren’t your taste? Luckily modern design has hit the urn market and given us new options with companies like Capsule Urn. They offer a line of simple and modern urns and keepsake boxes to commemorate your loved ones in a classy way.

These could easily pass for an object that you have on your bookshelf or mantle and won’t scream “ASHES!” to everyone who comes over.

The aluminum vessels are made in the USA and can be laser-engraved with the details of your loved one.
