It is out of a deep appreciation for the precious gift that life is – that I began devoting my craft to the making of memorial urns and reliquaries. For me, it’s a sacred act to handbuild vessels intended to hold the remains of someone who was loved and existed upon the earth.
My work explores a trinity where nature, architecture and spiritual/universal symbols meet. And just as each life is unique, so each urn is one of a kind.
My hope is these vessels will offer a sense of comfort, familiarity, and tenderness in the midst of one of life’s most difficult transitions – the passing of a loved one.
