Tom Aylwin specialises in carving landscapes into wooden urn boxes. Each Contour Box is made of ebonised English oak with your chosen landscape gilded in silver or gold, creating a beautiful personalised space for holding a loved one’s ashes. The landscape you choose can be anywhere; a place with fond memories, a special holiday or simply where someone lived or enjoyed walking. The name of your specially chosen place is all we need and we will do the rest.

Further Personalisation (optional)

Your Contour Box can also be personalised with:

  • a personal message engraved on the underside of the lid
  • a black marker embedded within your gilded landscape to mark somewhere specific. Eg a landmark or the exact location of somewhere special.


A Contour Box can also be a beautiful place for storing special keepsakes and photos (a small box will hold photos up to 4” x 6” & up to 8” x 6” in our large box) and to have as a commemoration within the home after the scattering of ashes.

All our boxes are fitted with a secure lock and include a drawstring ashes bag. They are made of solid smoked English oak, lined with British wool fabric and embedded with the artist's signature.
