Hand Painted Biodegradable Pet Urn
Alternate View
SKU: urn_utt_shl

This biodegradable pet urn is a memorable vessel for casting your friend's ashes into the sea. There is something very healing about placing your pet's cremains into an urn created with loving hands and then returning it to a watery expanse, one of the greatest symbols of nature and life.

Created from fine Grolleg porcelain paper clay, it is a mixture of clay minerals and natural plant fibers. The plant fibers not only give the urn strength when dry, but they also soak up the water so the urn dissolves quickly when you are ready to part with the physical remains of your friend.  The artist who creates these pieces, Pam, molds each one by hand and paints each piece with earth friendly, water soluable paints.

6.5-7.5" H x 14.5-15.5W x 7.5-8.8" D
For one or more pets - holds up to 180 pounds of live weight or 180 cubic inches

Pam hard at workPam Sinclair-Nixon is the talented artist of this pet urn. She has been working with clay for over 30 years and brings much experience and care to each piece she crafts. A lifetime student of ceramics, she finds inspiration in the oldest ceramics in existence, which are often funerary pieces. These ancient urns lead her to explore myths and rituals that transcend time and cultures around the world. She also enjoys incorporating nature into her urns.

To create each unique pet urn she makes, she uses wheel work and also hand building. And often she makes a piece with both. Whether she is using Raku, at which she has over 15 years of experience, electric firing, or traditional firing, you can be assured her full array of skills will be expertly employed in crafting your one of a kind pet urn.
