Teardrop urns are an emotive break with tradition
Teardrop urns are an expressive alternative to classically styled urns. While traditionally shaped urns are beautiful, sometimes the occasion, or the person, may require something different.
Why choose a teardrop urn?
A teardrop urn is a great choice for an urn that doesn't look like an urn. Like traditional urns, the brass or aluminium has the weight and cool feeling you would expect from an urn. However, instead of the traditional curves, and plinths, and lid, these urns have a delightful flowing form and are a curvaceous expression of beauty. A teardrop urn offers a more modern, emotive type of urn that really expresses our sentiments at this sad time.
What does a teardrop urn symbolise?
A teardrop urn symbolises our sadness at the departure of a loved one. Tears are a natural accompaniment to death and are an integral part of the healing process.
