A friend of mine recently had some sad news.
Their 18 year old house cat finally headed out on the rainbow road and her essence left this earth. From my past experience, when one loses a pet, it is like losing a family member. The loss of a pet leaves a hole in one’s heart and sadness in the soul.
My friend inquired if I had any urns that would be appropriate for pets as they wanted to purchase one. I had only made one urn before, but I volunteered to make them one. Looking past their grief, they suggested that I should be making them for others who have lost a pet. So while I was making an urn for their beloved kitty I made a prototype to add to the site:
I am really pleased with both how this piece and the one for my friend turned out and I will be adding it for sale and am in the process of making others. I hope to provide people with a beautiful, one of a kind, and affordable alternative in their time of grief to the commercial urns that are on the market. A cherished piece of beauty, much like the beloved they’ve lost.
The experience of making an urn was surprisingly beautiful, and of course a little sad. My friend was very happy with what I made for them (in a different glaze than this one), and the thought I was able to bring them a little bit of light in their time of sadness was both a relief and a blessing.
What colours do you think would help people find peace and comfort in their time of peace when losing a cherished four legged family member?
