Important Pottery Pieces

You may have seen some pictures of my dogs or remember me mentioning them in an article so you know I'm an animal lover.  Some customers have realized that too, some have commissioned me to make a memory vase using hair from a pet horse or dog, some have commissioned me to make urns for their pets.  I don't normally take pictures of these pieces as they seem really, really personal.  I did do a collaborative urn for a woman who asked me to create the urn and her friend who is a painter to do the decoration.  I'd love a picture of that piece to see the painting.

Today I had a conversation with another Etsy seller, she was complementing my horse hair raku.  She told me a story about how her Aunt had a horse that had to be put down.  The Aunt had a horse hair raku pot made from the mane and tail hair of the beloved horse and now has a piece of art that is very meaningful to her.  This story touched me and reminded me about how important a piece of pottery can be to someone.
Round Horse Hair Vase
Paws, Wags and Whiskers Pet Crematory also carries some of my pottery for their clients.  I consider it an honor.
