Michele Oka Doner’s Urns are showcased in the front lobby of Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park and were commissioned to be functional pieces of art. At any given time, you will find them overflowing with flowers and foliage, as they enhance the Welcome Desk and celebrate the unique mission of Meijer Gardens. Made of bronze, these vessels appear like the trunk of a tree.
