Introducing Planturns, handmade cremation vessels with a modern design aesthetic.
A non-traditional urn with a living component.
The top of the urn holds the plant, and the cremains are housed in the bottom. The top and bottom of the urn are secured by hidden rare earth magnets. The magnets are extremely strong, so even if the urn gets knocked over, the contents will be safe.
Included with the urn is a hand waxed muslin bag to hold your loved one's cremains. Muslin was chosen to echo traditional burial shrouds.
All the Planturns come with a glass or ceramic holder for whatever you choose to put in the top of your Planturn. You can place an air plant in there, plant a low maintenance succulent, or change it up with the seasons.
Planturns come in Small, Medium and Large. Calculating what size you need is easy. The general rule is that one pound of body weight requires one cubic inch of urn space.
All Planturns are meticulously crafted in my wood shop in Downtown Los Angeles.
Risks and challenges
As someone who has run a successful Kickstarter campaign and fulfilled all the rewards, I have created this project with the risks and challenges in mind. My business, Boyce Studio, runs successfully today with an established supply and shipping chain. We are used to the logistics of scheduling and shipping.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
