Ashes To Art Project
When a loved one passes, we often are at a loss for how to celebrate them beyond a memoral, a burial, their ashes in an urn, or their ashes released into nature.
The Ashes To Art Project is taking some of your loved one's ashes and incorporating them into a piece of art to memorialize their memory. Some people choose portaits of the deceased, others choose landscapes of their favorite location. Some prefer a sculpture where their ashes have been incorporated into the clay. And others choose a small piece of glass work which contains the ashes. Whatever you choose, I will work with you one on one to ensure we are honouring your loved one in a respectful and dignified manner.
At all times the ashes are handled with care and gloves are used throughout the process.
Paintings: $750.00 (plus tax and delivery) for a 16" x 20" in oil or oil over acrylic.
Clay Earthenware Sculptures: $850 (plus tax and delivery) for a 4" round by 8" high
