10 Best Blue Cremation Urns

Caribbean Blue Cultured Marble Cremation Urn

Cultured marble cremation urns are also sometimes called “vaults,” meaning that they can be buried in the ground without need for an additional burial vault. The non-biodegradable stone construction will endure for generations.

This particular urn is in a bright Caribbean Blue color. The consistent shades of traditional blue are enhanced by bold splashes of lighter aqua blue marbled throughout. We also offer the same urn style in a deep Navy Blue as well as many other colors. Contact us if you don’t see the color you like.

The Caribbean Blue Cultured Marble Cremation Urn offers an ideal surface to personalize with custom engraving. We can etch names, dates, and more, and we can customize further in a wide variety of ways including art etching and even photo sublimation.

Mediterranean Blue Cremation Urn in Brass

These blue urns are handcrafted from enameled brass and polished to shine luminously. The “Mediterranean blue” hints at the aquas, light blues, and rich deep blues of the famed Eastern sea. This is a standard sized adult urn.

Blue Cremation Urn in Hand-Blown Glass

This deep blue “Water” hand blown glass cremation urn is unmatched in beauty and elegance. The Deco Series of blown glass urns boasts a sleek and artistic design that highlights the rich and mysterious colors characteristic of the glass blowing process. The blue cremation urn is made in the USA with superior craftsmanship and is the perfect way to celebrate the depths of your loved one’s life.

Hand Turned Blue Oak Wood Cremation Urn

Here is a truly unique entry in the hand-turned wood urns category. Many vase-shaped wood urns made on a lathe are crafted from a single block of wood. This artist, however, takes dozens of wood pieces and fits them together beautifully to create a captivating look. This blue urn is made from oak wood, which is then stained a rich blue that still manages to highlight the spectacular wood grain patterns inherent within oak wood. A masterpiece.

Blue Angel Wings Ceramic Sculpture Urn

Cast ceramic cremation urn crafted in the shape of stunningly detailed angel wings. The Cobalt Blue finish is a deep and rich shade of blue. Lighter accents enhance the edges and highlight the shapes of the memorial art piece. Available in several additional colors with the option to pair it with a matching (yet different) small keepsake urn.

Flying Home Blue Cremation Urn with Doves

This elegant cremation urn is made from solid brass with an enameled silver inlay detailed in blue/teal/aqua decorative patterns. The images of the doves shows up in relief, creating images of peace and serenity that turn your thoughts to the heavens. Matching smaller keepsake urns (including the popular tealight urn) are also available.

Aluminum Rock Blue Cremation Urn

This unique cast aluminum cremation urn boasts a creative, natural shape and a stunning blue color. This is a full-sized adult cremation urn and can easily hold the remains of the average individual. The artful teardrop shape is decidedly modern. Also, the bright blue is laced with lighter marbled striations which ensure that this art piece won’t go unnoticed.

Serene Corsica Blue Urn

This light blue metal cremation urn for ashes is solidly made and affordably priced. The “Corsica blue” is a light seafoam color associated with the beautiful island in the Mediterranean Sea.

Blue Ceramic Pet Urn – Small Keepsake Urn

Here is an adorable personalized blue ceramic pet cremation urn. Handcrafted in Portland Oregon, you can customize it with your pet’s name. These urns hold a small amount of cremated remains (sizes range from 5 cubic inches up to 40, roughly the equivalent of 5-40 lbs of body weight). As small urns, they are ideal for pets or to hold a small “keepsake” portion of an adult’s cremated remains. For comparison, the typical size for an adult urn is about 200 cubic inches. So these urns hold about 1/5 or less of the full amount of ashes from an average adult cremation.

Several features make this blue urn simply super-cute. The round shape with highlight of baby blue color, the little gold heart, the hand-carved lettering of the name in a simple font, all these make this urn vessel an attractive memorial.

Biodegradable Blue Urn for Natural Water Scattering

This biodegradable navy blue cremation urn provides an eco-friendly water or ground burial. Made from biodegradable paper extracted from the bark of mulberry trees, this eco-friendly urn is sustainably produced and allows you to securely spread ashes at sea. The scattering takes place without a mess and without negatively impacting the environment.

Simply place the urn into the water. We designed the urn to float for a few minutes before filling with water and sinking to the ocean floor. The material will break down over the next few days and take your loved one’s remains into the ocean and throughout the world.

Remember Death: The Surprising Path to Living Hope (Book Review)

Book Review: Remember Death by Matthew McCullough

Christianity gets death backwards. You see, our advanced civilization tells us constantly to look forward to a long life, healthy and sexy bodies, a bright future in a steadily advancing career followed by an early retirement filled with travel and leisure.

Yet at the same time, we have more depression, anxiety, and chemical dependence than ever before. We have wealth but not fulfillment, leisure but not contentment, Instagram-worthy lives but not peace.

In all this, no topic is taboo except, perhaps, one: Death.

What’s going on here? Continue reading Remember Death: The Surprising Path to Living Hope (Book Review)

One expression of grief is a desire to memorialize the decedent, to honor their memory in a way that captures a sense of their personality, vitality, life, and passion.

Euphemisms for Death: Ways to Say That Someone Has Died

300 ways to say that someone has died

Euphemisms for death about. This is because there are many ways we talk about death.

Sometimes we talk evasively, in a way that avoids really talking about death. Other times we are trying to be polite and sensitive, especially around the family of the one who has died. Still other times we turn it into a big joke, blunting the razor edge of death’s horror with humor.

We can talk about death clinically, with a focus on the physical symptoms that avoids the emotional aspect. And of the flip side we can use purely emotional, whimsical terms like “living on in our hearts” as a way to deflect the crushing reality.

How to Find Comfort in a Time of Loss

Finding comfort in the midst of grief

I awoke from a vivid dream around four in the morning. Though my eyes were swollen from all the tears I cried earlier, I began quietly sobbing again, in the stillness of the night. Nobody else was awake in my house. It was just me and my tears, replaying memories in my head like a music player replays my favorite song.

My dream was about my dad, who was very ill. At the time, he appeared to be near death. The day before I visited him at a hospice care center with my husband and two young daughters. We brought him yellow flowers, something cheery to brighten up his cold, stark room. Then, we said our good-byes.
