Our Process...

Selection. Choose from our selection of memorial objects including cremation jewelry, candle luminaries, cremation urns, and more, and we'll custom make them, integrating your loved one's ashes into the process. 

Ash Collection. We'll send you a collection kit to retrieve the exact amount of ashes we need for your order, typically 100 grams (or about a cup). All you need to do is measure, label, and ship.

* Please note we are unable to send our "ashes collection kit" internationally, but will help you successfully mail your ashes to our studio.

Your Custom Glaze. Once your ashes arrive at our studio we transform them to a specially formulated ceramic glaze. We custom mix your glaze using a recipe of natural materials including silica, feldspar, clay, and your ashes. Your chosen designs are coated with your custom ash glaze and then fired in a kiln, permanently decorating the surface your new memorial objects. 

Arrival. Because our process is customized and we take great care in our service, please allow for 30-60 days to receive your memorial objects from when we receive your ashes. We want to make sure everything is perfect. 

Decorate your home with the memory of your loved ones

What our customers are saying...

KK Chicago, IL

​My beloved dog Lola died 5 years ago and I hadn't found the "right" way to memorialize her. As soon as I saw Justin's work and read the website, I knew my wait was over. I'm thrilled with Lola's urn. It's a beautiful object that's on display in my home and I love seeing it!"

It’s a symbol of a sad portion of my life, but if you get a mug or a plate it becomes a habitual part of your life. So he’s immortalized to a certain degree. I am going to try and bring this mug with me for the rest of my life to keep that reminder and try to honor him. It’s a way of sharing something with him still.
