CUSTOM URNS by Great American Urn Company

Handmade Artistic Wood Cremation Urns


Remember your loved one with a hand-crafted, American-made cremation urn made from wood and  natural materials.

Great American Urn Company offers an exclusive line of environmentally friendly, handcrafted wooden cremation urns for you to remember your loved one by. Our handcrafted in America cremation urns for ashes are hand built by artisan craftsmen right in our woodworking shops in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains.

Environmentally Friendly

Great American Urn Company makes custom, wooden cremation urns that are biodegradable and are designed for a green-burial. Our segmented construction is a process that utilizes the least amount of wood possible, and all of our woods are obtained from environmentally friendly forestry practices — no clear cutting of rain forests.

Great American Urn Company is owned and operated by Thomas Zumbach, a master woodturner based in Greer, South Carolina, an artisan that takes pride in creating beautiful, handcrafted wooden urns utilizing cherry, curly maple, wenge and blackwood, along with paying careful attention to matching grain, color and finish.

Each urn is handcrafted with care, assuring a final piece that is a work of art and a beautiful urn for you to remember your loved one by.


Great American Urn Company has both custom made and in-stock urns ready for ordering. Please visit our galleries — custom, segmented and remembrance to view examples of our work, all of which are available for purchase.
