A kauri log left hidden away in a river for many years produced this very unusual coloured lid; it has replicated the silt of the riverbed. In stark contrast the urn is out of ash from the fertile flats near Omaha. This makes a sweet combination. It reminds that we absorb from our environment; I try to soak in kindness and peace, then give it away. This product has been carefully finished in environmentally friendly natural oils and waxes.
