“Grief starts to become indulgent, and it doesn’t serve anyone, and it’s painful. But if you transform it into remembrance, then you’re magnifying the person you lost and also giving something of that person to other people, so they can experience something of that person.” Patti Smith

Personalized Urns with Photos in Pique Assiette Mosaic Design

“Your urns are to die for!” I’ve been told, which always makes me smile. I enjoy being able to do something uplifting for someone who’s experienced a loss.

Photos and other memorabilia embedded in pique assiette embrace warm memories in a lasting, visual eulogy. I provide a custom ordered urn that is attractive, a welcome addition to the home that is unlike anything else I have seen.

I personalize an urn to your specifications. You participate by choosing the colors and selecting what you would like included in the mosaic tribute. Both the process and the piece are personal and special, a contrast to an ordinary, mass-produced urn.

A personalized urn is what I would have wanted when our family dog died. That inspired me to come up with this technique. Pique assiette mosaic is the ideal medium as the pieces come together to tell a story, much like life itself.

Loved Ones Speak

If you want a piece that will have great and enduring emotional
resonance, Sybil Sage is the artist for you. Her urn conveyed everything that was important to my late
husband: work, friendship and love. Looking at it,
I experience the delight of encountering a sheaf of love letters found in an attic,
tied with a bow. It’s stupendously beautiful.

Ann Bramson, New York book editor
