Azzurro features a delicate natural pattern that appears to flow infinitely over a calming blue sea—symbolizing life, wisdom, peace, and purity. The natural and infinite pattern are symbolic of the cyclical nature of life itself, serving as a powerful reminder that our love for our cherished ones continues even after their passing. The deep ocean blue is also a color that universally represents freedom, wisdom, and trust, as well as intuition, wisdom, faith, and the home. It is a color that inspires peace and calmness in one’s soul.
The exquisite nature of the exterior of Azzurro Cremation Urn for Ashes is created from a wood inlay technique, a skill for which artisans in Italy are internationally recognized. The delicate technique is learned and practiced across generations of families and takes extensive experience to master.
Each inlaid piece is made with the same precise attention to detail as a work of art, using the finest materials available to ensure its superior quality. The inlay design is created by hand-cutting and assembling thin pieces of wood and applying them to the surface to create a pattern. It's a complex and intricate process. 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. The finish enhances the beauty of the piece, ensuring it becomes a timeless family heirloom.
These urns are completely crafted by hand, and due to the artisanal process required, are incredibly time-consuming to complete, with a single cremation urn often taking several days to complete. The attention to detail and difficult mastery of the process all make it a unique but powerful way to eternally memorialize a loved one after their passing.
