The Hugo Cremation Urn is a unique, geometric design that is featured as part of the Amalfi Collection of urns. This urn, along with all the works of art included in the Amalfi Collection, is hand-crafted by expert artisans in Italy. Hugo features a geometric pattern and is influenced by ancient and inimitable wood-working techniques of Italy. This cremation urn is unique and combines charm with the most modern pulses of contemporary design.
Hugo is crafted from the highest quality materials, making it durable and handsome. Hugo carries form and function into a work of art that gives you and your family a worthy option to permanently memorialize your loved one. In addition to the parquetry technique and the combination of blue and white colors, the brilliant shiny surface is achieved through a labor-intensive lacquering process that involves applying a minimum of five layers of liquid varnish and sanding between each coat. While enhancing the beauty of the cremation urn, it ensures to be a timeless family heirloom.
Geometric patterns are often seen to symbolize order, patterns, and consistency as well as unity and wholeness. These are often powerful traits seen in those we love, especially in matriarchs or patriarchs of a family who are known to help hold all the pieces of a family together and unite everyone.
Additionally, blue is a color that often symbolizes freedom, imagination, inspiration, loyalty, trust, and stability. It is a color that inspires calmness and serenity in our lives. White often represents purity, innocence, peace, and balance. Many of these can be attributed to someone loved who recently has passed.
The intricate process by which the Hugo cremation urn is created not only takes a talented expert in parquetry but is also a process that takes several days to complete a single piece and decades to master. To create a single Hugo urn, an artist in Italy starts by perfectly shaping and carving the blocks of wood per the design. Each piece must be shaped to perfection, sanded, and refinished to fit smoothly in place. The pieces are then placed together as a mosaic, fitting perfectly together to form a unique, geometric pattern of squares and rectangles.
The combination of subtle yet striking colors and the special design process in the art of inlay all contribute to making the Hugo a meaningful, unique, and powerful way to remember your loved one.
