About Harley’s Urn

The urn which contains Harley’s ashes was carved from the heart of the tree stump that Harley is sitting on in this picture. The tree was at least 200 years old and its stump became “Harley’s stump”. He sat on it many times, enjoying the mountain air.

“I felt it important to use the heart of Harley’s special tree stump. With no particular design in mind, the end result is what came naturally. I carved the ancient amber piece, which serves as a lid, to allow the sun to always shine through.” -Dan (Harley’s Dad)

The photos below show the urn, and also the tree trunk which is now very close to the ground. Dan carved the giant H (18″ tall) which is impressive in both summer and winter!
