Granville Urns, creators of timeless artisan-crafted heirloom urns, recently announced the introduction of its Classic Collection, a new line of modern, elegant designs making Granville’s hand-made Italian craftsmanship accessible to several generations.
“Our Classic Collection combines the unrivaled, handmade Italian artistry that death-care professionals have come to expect from Granville Urns, but with a more simplified approach,” said Fletcher Hassenfelt, founder and designer at Granville Urns. “These refined designs allow our clients to provide a wider selection of premium urns with multiple price points.”
Granville’s Classic Collection of decorative urns offers designs crafted using the same intricate wood inlay technique used in the Signature Collection. Signature products include this inlay on all sides, while products in the new Classic Collection feature the inlaid design on the top only.
The Classic Collection also introduces new compositions of inlay patterns, inspired by ancient stonework and woodwork discovered on family trips. For example, the Lucinda design, reminiscent of ancient mosaics found in Ravenna, Italy, features an exquisite white dove with delicate flowers and a gently flowing ribbon in a soft blue-green color palette. The hot sand shading technique used creates a three-dimensionality to the design, allowing the entire composition to flow and move as if a painting made of wood.
“Every decision we made with our partners in Italy was rooted in our mission — to give families something unique to treasure,” Hassenfelt said. “We hope our memorials make a difference in the lives of families and serve to honor their loved ones.”
The Granville Urns Classic Collection is available to death-care professionals only. Samples may be ordered by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 336-448-5000. (Tell them you read about their new line of urns on FuneralVision.com!)
