Les Grand VentsMartin Huot is an extremely talented artist and woodturner. 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 – sourced in his local area in Quebec, Canada.These very tactile urns are polished with beeswax to achieve a glass-like, smooth finish. They would sit proud 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, this exposes the very heart of the tree providing a stunning display of natural colours and textured grains. The domed cap is finished with a finely engineered brass thread. As each urn is turned from a single sourced log, no two urns are the same – they are signed, numbered and come with a certificate of authenticity. Martin finishes some urns have artistic metal embellishment, such as bronze work. Secure Haven also represent Les Grand Vents throughout Europe. Capacity 4 litres, RRP £449.
We have worked closely with Bea Stone in Poland to develop this very special outdoor urn. It allows families to fulfil their desire to keep the ashes of loved ones and pets at home in the garden. This unique urn is large enough to accommodate at least two sets of ashes so that family members can be reunited after passing. The Angel at Rest Urn is designed as a weatherproof and watertight outdoor urn which allows families to store their loved one’s or pet’s ashes at home in the garden or any private outdoor space – it can also sit as an artistic piece within the home. Cast in stone and resin bond to form a robust urn, it remains forever peaceful and elegant yet is still very discreet as a garden memorial. Hand finished in an artist’s studio, it is then plated in natural iron, copper or bronze, producing a magical display of eye-catching colour. The Angel At Rest Urn is then highly lacquered producing a lovely sheen finish, containing UV protection. The urn is accessed underneath via an 80mm anodised aluminium threaded plug with a final rubber seal. This allows for easy interment and later additional interment as partners and pets are reunited after passing. Capacity 8 litre, RRP £499.
