If you have been looking for an urn that allows you to incorporate a photo of your pet upon it, you've finally found one! A photo of your pet is actually fired on the urn during the kilning process so it is permanently affixed. This completely hand made urn will thus be a unique photo memento too of your beloved friend.
On the next page of the order form below, you can upload a digital photo of your pet. Whether you submit it in black and white or color, we will convert the photo so that the finished product has an antique look like the examples here show. *Click the small photos on the left for larger views.

Place a bead of glue around the lip of the urn and then put the lid on. For tips on using pet urns and storing ashes, please see our Urns FAQs.
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.
