Les Grand Vents – Martin Huot is an extremely talented artist and wood-turner. Working as ‘Les Grands Vents’ he produces exceptional solid wood funeral urns. These are hand carved and turned from one single log in various woods such as Apple, Birch, Cherry and Maple – all sourced locally in Quebec, Canada. These very tactile urns are polished with beeswax to achieve a glass-like, smooth finish. They would sit splendidly within the family home as a piece of natural artwork and discreetly hold the ashes of a loved one or family pet. In turning and crafting the urn, he exposes the very heart of the tree to provide a stunning display of natural colours and textured grains. The domed cap is finished with a beautifully engineered brass thread. As each urn is turned from a single sourced log, no two urns are identical. Each urn is signed, numbered and comes with a certificate of authenticity. Some urns are finished with artistic metal embellishment, such as bronze work.
