My sincere condolences for your loss.  In hopes to make this as easy as possible, I've combined my gallery and order form with examples as you go along. If you are unsure about anything, include your questions or concerns in the spaces provided and I will do my best to answer them so that we can design exactly what you want. 

All major credit cards accepted through Pay Pal, I accept checks/money orders too. Payment due before shipment,installments accepted.

**Generally, custom urns take anywhere between 6 to 10 weeks for completion.  If you'd rather not wait, check out my non-custom urns being sold on Etsy, shipped to you via priority mail within 3 days.**

We start with a basic urn with only glaze,
 decide on your glaze color.


                             spiral hand infinity logo

 *TIPS: If you are planning to add other custom features, colors that  contrast work best however, just the 'clay' (no glaze at all) gives the cleanest look and matches nicely with all glaze colors with less chance of glaze bleeding or running.  Most glazes are pretty stable; opal, deep blue & green are my most fluid glazes & hardest to control, the stamped work provides a reservior for the glaze to puddle.  If you want these colors with a second color, it can still be done, just realize there's a slight risk of glaze bleed or running.

 *Glazes that are more transparent tend to 'break' (changes where glaze thins like throwing rings or impressions in the clay) better over the print than others like the 'washed' glazes as shown above.

Also if you have an idea that's not represented here, run it by me, maybe I can work my magic.

  Hanging Attachments  (add $8) *three max*
No Attachments



         *Beads are either bone, glass or stone as the hanging hearts and stars are clay.  Remember to pick colors that contrast the base glaze you picked for the urn.

hang pet tags from pet urn  dog with bows attached
*A jump ring can be attached to urn if you would like to hang your dog's tags, sometimes placement can be a little tricky, so a measurement of how long the tags are can be useful.

Remember, too, your pet's collar could possibly fit around the neck of the urn.  Let me know if that's something you would like to do then please provide me with a measurement of the diameter at the widest setting of the collar and the width as well.
