Green Cremation Urns for Adults
Please note that the green cremation urns for adults can often be used for larger pets, and the smaller urns for pets can also be used as a “keepsake” urn for humans when a portion of the remains gets scattered or shared among relatives.
1. HAND-BLOWN GREEN GLASS CREMATION URN
Looks like the leafy green canopy of a forest, doesn’t it? Complete with browns for the tree trunks and limbs and little hints of yellow sunlight and even a splash of blue sky.
This green cremation urn is hand-blown in lovely colored glass. Each piece is unique, individually handmade to order in the USA and featuring a one-of-a-kind pattern of woodsy greens and browns. A true art deco memorial.
2. HAND-BLOWN AEGEAN GLASS CREMATION URN
Same as the forest green urn above, but in a different color scheme. This, the “Aegean” finish, includes a whirl of blues, aquas, oranges, yellows, and sand colors in addition to the green. By far the most requested color scheme for our hand-blown glass cremation urns.
3. VOTIVE CANDLE CERAMIC ART URN IN OILED GREEN
This green cremation urn is a beautiful ceramic art memorial piece that includes a space for a tealight or votive candle. Crafted in Bulgaria from cast ceramic forms, this sculpture permeates with life and vitality.
There is a flat space towards the back of the urn center which is designed to hold a small tea light candle. The oval shape perfectly compliments the candle flame, which burns in memory of your beloved.
4. ANGEL WINGS CERAMIC SCULPTURE URN
A new take on the traditional ceramic urn shape, this memorial art vessel features majestic angel wings and an “oiled green” finish. Also available paired with a smaller matching keepsake with raised angel wings lifted and about to take flight.
5. HAND-TURNED GREEN OAK WOOD URN
This stunning green cremation urn is handcrafted in the USA from small blocks of oak wood. The urn is then turned on a lathe by hand to create a beautifully classical shape that is very earthy and natural looking yet decidedly modern.
6. HANDCRAFTED GREEN CELTIC DRAGON CERAMIC URN
Handcrafted ceramic urn in an antique, old-world style. The matted green finish overlays a raised Celtic dragon image. Individually made in the USA, with several sizes available. These include small, standard adult, and companion urn sizes (companion urns hold the remains of two people, often a husband and wife).
7. GREEN LEAVES PORCELAIN CREMATION URN
This lovely little memorial is decorated with the outlines of leaves. Made in Massachusetts by a talented ceramic artist, this green cremation urn features individually hand-carved leaf designs and a transparent glaze.
8. EVERGREEN CULTURED MARBLE CREMATION URN
A rich, dark, pine-tree-forest green, the Evergreen Cultured Marble Urn is stately and exquisite yet also emanates a sense of natural tranquility. Made in the USA, you can get this memorial custom laser engraved with an inscription, which looks excellent with a silver color fill.
9. GREEN PATINA CERAMIC POTTERY URN
A lovely green ceramic cremation urn crafted in Socorro, New Mexico.
This one is listed as a pet urn, but it holds 160 cubic inches of remains. This means that it holds ashes equivalent to 160 pounds of the original pre-cremation body weight. So it would work for anyone – adult or pet – who weighed 160 lbs or less prior to cremation.
Since this is on the larger size, we’re listing it here as an adult urn, but of course you can use the same vessel for a pet.
10. DRAGONFLY CERAMIC CREMATION URN
A gorgeous example of Raku-fired ceramics, this dragonfly cremation urn is bold, robust, and seemingly ancient. The finish is “Aqua”, but can range from bright blue to subtle green tones. This one shows some bright copper “flashing,” which is produced in unique patterns when the urn is fired in a combustion chamber.
Also available in several other colors and sizes, including pet and companion urns. Handcrafted from start to finish in the USA at the hands of an artisan.
11. JOURNEY EARTHURN BIODEGRADABLE URN
This lovely biodegradable cremation urn is designed for spill-proof water scattering. If you are planning on scattering your loved one’s ashes in the ocean, but are concerned about wind blowing the remains all over the place, then this is the urn you want.
Crafted from natural biodegradable paper-based materials, this urn (available in standard and mini sizes, as shown above) keeps the remains completely secure. Just place the urn in the water and it will float for a few minutes then sink below the surface of the water, to slowly erode and cast the ashes throughout the sea.
12. EMBRACE EARTHURN BIODEGRADABLE PHOTO URN
Another design in the “green” Earthurn series, this biodegradable urn features a square design and a photo frame to hold a picture of your loved one. Made from the bark of the mulberry tree, the urn is intended to be placed in the water for a water burial/scattering.
13. BEAUTIFUL MEADOW GREEN GLASS CREMATION URN
Crafted individually in Canada (but ships anywhere), this stunning “Meadow” glass art urn features prominent splashes of green fields fading into a clear blue sky.
The urn is hand-blown in a sophisticated glass shape with what the artist calls “shimmering iridescent art glass,” and includes ornamental glass flowers and stems embedded within the surface of the urn, representing a vibrant meadow of flowers in gloriously full summer bloom.
14. LOVING ANGEL WINGS BRASS URN IN MINT GREEN
Mint green and heart-shaped angel wings are the prominent features of this elegant and affordable memorial urn. A traditional vessel etched by hand with timeless yet contemporary designs, this is a lovely tribute to your special angel.
