Glazed Terracotta, height 37cm
Creating an urn is a beautiful commission, which I take very seriously. The process of sculpting the raw material of the clay feels ceremonial, as I am holding a prayerful space throughout.
I listen to the wishes of the family, to design a vessel that honours their deceased loved one appropriately.
The process of designing and making can take up to a month, and costs between £300 and £500 depending on the complexity of the make.
The pictured urn I built to house my Mum's ashes.
It feels good to honour the gritty remains in this way. To keep them safe until the time feels right to let them go.
