Email photos and info that you would like to share about your beloved pet. I spend many hours in the studio with pictures and details next to me as I create your special urn, first 'throwing' the vessel on the potttery wheel, then attaching features to capture facial expressions, markings and as much personality as I can.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE
About 3 - 4 weeks.
A lot of drying time is required for stoneware pottery, including two full day firings. See The Process for more details on making pottery. I often send updates via email, or feel free to contact me any time during the process.
I do not require a depost, when you place your order I get to work on it asap, once your urn is built and drying I send photos along with a Paypal invoice. When you purchase it I then paint and finish it with a final firing. You can also pay via my Etsy shop lisitng, or I will make a custom listing for you there,
United States Postal Service Priority Mail
Your invoice will show the shipping cost in addition to the price of the finished urn. Pottery is quite heavy, the size and weight will determine the cost. I will send an estimate upon request. Tracking and shipping insurance for a lost or broken package is included.
SECURING THE LID
If you would like to permanently secure the lid of your urn, I suggest using a clear epoxy or ceramic glue, available at craft or hardware stores. Follow instructions on package, place a few small dots around the lip of the lid.
Placing the bag of ashes inside the ceramic urn without opening it. If the bag does not fit you may opt to cut a corner of the bag to allow control of the flow while transferring. Lay down plastic or paper so spilled ashes can be easily added to the urn.
