Hummingbirds, according to Ted Andrews, author of Animal-Speak, represent in Native American culture, “timeless joy and the Nectar of Life. It’s a symbol for accomplishing that which seems impossible and will teach you how to find the miracle of joyful living from your own life circumstances.”
Whether because of the symbolic meaning of hummingbirds or because a departed loved one had always found them irresistably intriguing and beautiful, the hummingbird is a wonderful subject for memorial cremation urns.
At Urns Northwest, we offer a variety of wood urns, ceramic urns, small keepsake urns, and even wood clock urns which feature lovely hummingbird scenes. These urns are made by the finest woodworkers and ceramic artists to create a beautiful memorial as a stirring keepsake for your loved one.

“Keepsake” is sort of a code word withing the urn industry, it means that the urn holds a small amount of remains so that a family member can retain a small amount of ashes as a token “keepsake”. This keepsake urn holds one cubic inch of ashes in a tiny compartment in the back of the urn.

Made in the USA in an Oregon woodshop, this clock urn comes in your choice of Maple (as shown here), Oak, or Walnut. The clock boasts a spacious 6-1/2″ diameter and is powered by two AA batteries, which are easily replaceable without any need to open the urn.
The “Astoria” shape is modeled after the all-American Craftsman style, starting out wide at the base and tapering up towards the top, with simple bevelled edges which enhance the presentation of the wood.
The inlay scene on the front is comprised of several different types of wood in their natural colors. Each piece is engraved for detail and assembled in layers, creating a three dimensional effect. Maple and rosewood flowers stand out against a cherry wood background, while a walnut, maple, and rosewood hummingbird flits nearby.
Alternate inlay scenes are available, including lighthouses, rustic cabins, butterflies, horses, deer, dolphins, and more. We also offer laser engraved personalization, which can be etched onto the top or back of the clock urn.
