Choosing to return your pet's cremains to nature, be that through the water or the earth, is sometimes the most fitting way to honor your pet's memory. For a beloved, free spirited friend, scattering his or her cremains in the great outdoors may be the perfect choice not only as a tribute to the personality you so loved but also a healing and cathartic event for you as well.
Created from fine Grolleg porcelain paper clay, this biodegradable pet urn 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 water so the urn either dissolves quickly when placed in a body of water or melds quickly into the earth if buried. The artist who creates these pieces, Pam, molds each one by hand and paints each piece with earth friendly, water soluable paints.

Pam 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.
