QUAKER HISTORY – Clonmel is one of many locations in Ireland that had a strong association with the Quaker movement. The Quaker connection with County Tipperary, Ireland lasted from their arrival in 1665 to the closure of their last meeting house in Clonmel in 1924. Although never exceeding five hundred members at any given time, they contributed greatly to the economic life of the community. They aspired to live simply and plainly, be honest in their dealings and industrious in their ways. They opposed violence of any kind and were always to the forefront in promoting charitable causes. In recognition of the Quaker movement their contribution and values we have designed two urns to reflect these values which are as relevant as ever in our society today.

Quaker B


Our second Quaker style employs as proportion the golden ratio otherwise known as the Fibonacci sequence nature's code or way for information to ow in a very efficient manner. It can be found everywhere in natures endless list including plants, animals and humans. Examples include the number of petals on a flower, the spiral seen on the sunflower, the spiral on sea shells, galaxy formations, pine cones or tory tops, the human face, height to width ratio. The ratio here is 1:1.618 and we employ it with carefully selected white Maple as a sign of purity together with Wenge lifts.

These contrasting woods highlight their inherent beauty, and diversity, the simple form portraying elegance honesty and integrity with timeless attention towards perfection values we're sure the Quakers would agree. This Urn may be used for burial, columbarium wall or as a lovely piece to keep in the home.

Materials are Maple and Wenge and it is hand finished in a polywax.
