Introducing the Pebblewood Urn

Charles Cowling



Davina Kemble’s pebblewood coffin was unveiled at the Ideal Death Show 2013. Reviews were mixed. Some undertakers thought it would be impossible to persuade a dead person to conform to its rounded shape; others reckoned there was no problem. Since then, Davina’s partnership with her manufacturer reached a conclusion, but she’s carried on working away at it and a full-size pebble-shaped coffin will soon be on the market.

In the meantime, she has just launched her pebble-shaped ashes urn. It is taking off nicely. She is selling direct to the public through Etsy – here – and of course she’d be pleased to hear from discerning undertakers. Davina’s website is here and her Facebook page here.

Hats off to Davina. She’s stuck the course – she’s done what she’s had to do and seen it through without exemption, etc. There have been forbidding lows that would have done for most of us.

Here at the GFG-Batesville Shard the consensus is that Davina’s pebble urns are rare and lovely. We hope you like them, too.

    I’m hopeful to soon be able to order a pebblewood coffin to use as a piece of furniture until it’s needed for its main purpose. Meanwhile I’m thinking up temporary uses for one of these beautiful urns – a jewelry box, a sewing kit, a place to store office items on the home desk… And of course some day it can be used for my ashes. I’m been pragmatic all my life and combining art, philosophy and practical use as the pebblewood coffin and urn do will be the perfect ‘statement’ to mark my passing.

    Amazing! I love this product – so thoughtfully made. Unusual, artistic and handmade, everything you could possibly want when embracing a loved one for the last time.

    Yes please. I think I’ll make my exit in one of these. Gentle curves and beautiful surfaces. The only way to go ….

    What a lovely idea. So nice to see beauty and art in this area. It’s either bling or wooden boxes. I think this is inspirational
