Not too long ago A friend of mine had some sad news.
Their 18 year old house cat had 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 this prototype to add to the site:
I am really pleased with how this piece and 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.
We asked our readers for suggestions of a colour to “help people find peace and comfort after losing a cherished four legged family member” and
Blue was the most popular suggestion
The experience of making urns is surprisingly beautiful, and of course a little sad but I appreciate that I am able to
bring a little bit of light to people in their time of loss.
What do you think of the blue urn?
