A Different Journey

Recently we were asked to make a series of urns for a family.  Our pieces are usually used for dining, serving, home entertaining or home decor. 

When we started to work, we found that making an urn is a different journey for an artist.  An urn means a lot to the family and their memories.  When we were asked to make four urns it took a lot of thought and planning.

We chose the theme of trees because of the historical significance and symbolism of a tree.  Symbolism of leaves. The tree of life is a symbol of new beginnings and a symbol of immortality. The seeds it provides insures insures both new beginnings and its own immortality.
