|“Earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust...” reads the English “Book of Common Prayer” of 1662. In a lifetime, each of us make the full circle. Many peoples and cultures, from prehistory to the present, have celebrated this eternal spiral by honoring the memory of their departed with the preservation of remains in stone reliquaries. Continue this ancient tradition of respect with Forgotten Stoneworks’ extensive selection of funeral urns, markers, gravestones and other stone items for your memorial, altar, shrine or ofrenda, handcrafted from native Maine granite and other local, New England stone. Every person is an individual; our cremation urns reflect this diversity. Many are unique, although we make several lines of similar, popular designs. Sizes range from large, 200-cubic-inch urns to small, keepsake boxes. Honor the spirits of departed family and friends in this old and sacred way.
We also offer a selection of several styles and individual urns and markers for pets.
If you are in the south-central Maine area, stop in and see all of our stone crafts. Our showroom features over a hundred urns, other memorial stones, lettering samples, mirror mosaics, desk sets, planters (some with plants), vases, bookends, business card holders, candlesticks and menorahs, cabinetry pulls, coasters and napkin holders and other handcrafted stone items. We also do stone lettering.
