Casting Ashes Handcrafted Set of Companion Pebbles in a Bowl
Handmade to order by Casting Ashes in their studio in Cornwall, this beautiful memorial keepsake includes a small amount of cremation ashes, to help keep your loved one close by.
A beautiful alternative to an urn, this sculptural and tactile piece includes two polished companion pebbles, which contain the ashes, presented in a smooth concrete bowl to create a beautiful item to display in your home.
The individual companion pebbles are designed to accompany you throughout the day. The pocket pebble can be tucked away in your pocket and held while you are out and about, a tangible reminder of the constant presence of your loved one. The slightly larger desk pebble can be kept close by to reach for when you need a little inspiration or a sense of re-connection.
Each pebble has a smooth and textured surface. As you turn them in your hand you can feel the contrast between the rough and smooth as you run your fingers and thumbs over the surface. This can aid the mindful practice of being in the now and can be a source of comfort during the grieving process.
The companion pebbles come with pieces of Cornish slate and sit in a smooth mother bowl, keeping them in a safe place when not in use, and making a beautiful ornament when teamed with a tealight.
A graceful piece of minimalist home decor, this will not look out of place in your home and is more discreet than a conventional urn - no one need know the pebbles contain ashes unless you choose to tell them.
This Casting Ashes® item is an artisan product which will be made to order, especially for you. Each piece will have its own unique markings as part of the handmade process and may differ slightly from the image shown. The ashes are added to the cement mix and thereby are fully incorporated into the solid piece. This is not a hollow urn containing ashes so please note that the process is irreversible.
The bowl measures approximately 12cm in diameter.
