Hand Made Urns by Phil Irons

Welcome to Hand Made Urns by Phil Irons

Born in Sydney, Australia, Phil's first introduction to woodturning came at the age of 13 when his father acquired an 1870s American cast iron child's treadle lathe. Woodturning became a serious hobby in his late 20's and after a six year spell in the travel industry, he took the decision become a professional woodturner in 1994.

Hi Phil, I just wanted to let you know that the urn arrived safely yesterday! My daughter and I are thrilled with it and greatly admire your artistry and exquisite craftsmanship! It a beautiful object to keep my husband’s ashes safe in. We can’t thank you enough and are so grateful we found you on Google! I’ll do you an excellent review when I can.

"Hello Phil, I was watching an old episode of Salvage Hunters yesterday and saw you making the Alfa gear knob and I thought the urn you showed was just so beautiful. My wife died a few years ago and I've been looking for a nice urn for her ever since but I've never been able to find anything I really liked. Thank you. Regards, Simon "

 

"I wanted a beautiful work of art to house my husbands ashes in our living space without looking uncomfortably obvious to visitors. I chose this from the photographs on here with the confidence and assurance I felt after reading previous customers' comments. The piece arrived overnight and safely packaged and the photos don't do it justice and looks even better in reality. Phil was quick to reply to all of my questions via message and I would have no hesitation in recommending anyone to purchase from him."

 

"I purchased this urn to hold my fathers ashes and I couldn't have picked a more beautifully made piece from Phil. The shipping was so quick which was a relief as well. I really appreciated Phil's quick responses and thoughtfulness to my situation."

 

"I have to say, this custom Urn Phil made for me is utterly stunning. His craftsmanship and skill shine brightly through in his artwork. I can't thank you enough for making this happen for us. I truly appreciate how hard you worked to get this to us in time for my dad's Service. It is beyond beautiful and has received endless comments and inquiries to it's origin. Thank you, Phil, you are an amazing man."

 

 

"This Urn is unique and beautiful!"

 

Hi Phil, My mum received the urn this morning and she immediately messaged me to say how ‘beautiful’ it is.  I called on my way home from work as I was also eager to see it for myself, and have to say that it is stunning.        My dad would certainly have approved - hand crafted by an artist from locally sourced wood - ‘right up his street’.
You are evidently very talented, and I must say you have been a pleasure to deal with.  Your communications have been great from the moment that I contacted you, and the packaging / delivery timescale excellent.
A wholehearted thank you from my family.  Your artwork will always remain a cherished item.

Kind regards,
Brendan

"Not something you ever really want to buy, but I am likely to have it with me for a long time, so it was worth getting something really beautiful. And this really is beautiful - tactile, lovely shape, warm colour and pattern to the wood. I feel that I did the best for my beloved husband in buying such a beautiful urn for him. Thank you."
