Kite Tail - "I'll Fly Away"
Ambrosia Maple with Walnut Bow Tie Inlays

Capacity: 240 cu. in.
Height: 12.75"   Width: 8.0"


This is a Kite Tail urn, using an ancient Polynesian method of inlayed “Pewas” (today known as bow ties) where nature’s imperfections occur in the form of checking. Clark McMullen’s wife, Sherri, noted that the chain of bow ties looks like a kite tail. Like a kite tail stabilizing flight, our kite tail has stabilized the urn to be preserved forever.

A gospel hymn “I’ll Fly Away” is reflected in the kite’s flight.

       Some bright morning when this life is over
       I'll fly away
       To a home on God's celestial shore
       I'll fly away

       I'll fly away, oh glory
       I'll fly away in the morning
       When I die, Hallelujah by and by
       I'll fly away

The Kite Tail for When Ordinary Won’t Do!

This urn is made from Maple wood, an American favorite. Best known for syrup and displays of red, orange and yellow each fall, Maples grow throughout the Eastern and Central United States. Trees can reach 130 feet tall and the wood color varies from creamy white to grey to reddish-brown depending on the species. This piece exhibits decorative design in the wood as a result of the Ambrosia beetle. Appropriately referred to as Ambrosia Maple, this wood is highly sought after for wood turning.
