Here are two short documentary style features on Crazy Coffins made for a university project, one narrated by Ursula Williams looking at the company, the work we do, the exhibitions etc. and the other lead by David Crampton looking more at the production side of it, how the coffins are put together etc.
We recently added some new coffins and urns to our Photos/Gallery section of the site. Click the images to view more info or see larger versions.
A Belfast man in the prime of life, working in the security industry in Afghanistan has commissioned this coffin, which celebrates his favourite tipple, "just in case". The coffin, which stands 111" high, is made of MDF and decorated with water-based paints.
A lady living near Aylesbury ordered this urn for her late husband, who was something of a Trekkie. We posted photos of the manufacturing process on the Crazy Coffins Facebook page. An imaginative funeral director and blogger in the US shared a photo of the finished product on his page, from where it was picked up by George Takei – the original Mr Sulu – and went global! The picture on his page has had more than 40,000 “likes”, our own following has trebled and the phone hasn’t stopped ringing.
Take a look at the method and steps we took to create the Rolls Royce Coffin.
