About this Piece
This design is inspired by the famous Claddagh Ring and symbol of love, loyalty, and friendship.
The hands = friendship
The ancient heart tri-spiral = eternal love
The Gaelic crown = Celtic loyalty
The use of the triptych knot on the crown and spiral design on the heart borrows both from Irish pagan and Christian cultures, each symbolising eternity.
A Celtic collar knot represents how the Irish are all bound together for eternity.
This urn has a beautiful feel and texture reflecting its handcrafted quality. The colors are earthy so they represent the timeless beauty found in the nature of Ireland and its seas.
The artisan mixes his own glazes and calls this 'Slieve Foy Green', a mysterious deep green found in the moss and heather across the Mourne and Cooley mountains that surround his home.
This Urn is delivered in a beautiful Urn presentation box lined with Irish traditional hessian.

About the Maker
Bob Hamilton founded Irish Urns in Dublin for the purpose of helping Irish families find high-quality urns and keepsakes at a difficult time. After a death of a close relative, Bob realized how difficult it can be to procure a truly 100% Irish urn that reflects the heritage and ancestry of Ireland, particularly for families with Irish roots living outside Ireland. Thus, Irish Urns was born. Their skilled artisans allow grieving families to capture the heart of Irish heritage with their carefully crafted urn and keepsake collection.
