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 comes from a piece of Cherry wood. Like all fruit trees, the Cherry actually belongs to the rose family. American Colonists used the cherry tree for its fruit, medicinal properties and home furnishings. They mixed cherry juice with rum to create Cherry Bounce, a bitter but highly favored cordial. Found in the Eastern United States, the average tree is 60 to 70 feet in height. The heartwood of cherry varies from rich red to reddish brown and will darken with age and exposure to light. In contrast the sapwood is creamy white.
