Because these are available for sale in our shops every day,  the urns in our photos are sometimes sold there.  Please write us at noheagallery at gmail.com and we will send you photos of urns that are in the shop today.

Each urn is built to make the most of the piece of koa the craftsman is using, so there are some small variations in size. Koa urns are available in these sizes today:

The bottom is attached with four removable screws.  To take the bottom off, unscrew three of the four acres completely and one partially  lift the bottom off using the partially attached screws.

The wood used to make these urns is  solid Acacia koa, found only in the Hawaiian Islands.  Other woods are also available, including monkeypod which can be very beautiful.

Coming from the species of flowering tree in the pea family, koa was used by ancient Hawaiians to make canoes, spears, and sometimes used for calabashes. The highest populations are on Hawaiʻi, Maui and Oʻahu

Reforestation efforts are ongoing on the Big Island and on Maui, to recover the species from the devastation caused by clear-cutting for ranching and more recently, invasive forest animals.
