An Artist has used the ashes of human remains to create functional pottery.
Unique custom memorial objects like mugs, bowls, and functional dinnerware have been created by Chronicle Cremation Designs, a business by a US artist, Justin Crowe, out of human remains.
According to Crowe, the unusual dinnerware was “designed to infuse a sense of mortality into everyday moments”.
What started out as a personal project following the death of a loved one has blossomed into a successful enterprise, offering a variety of usable memorial products coated in a “custom ash glaze.”
Crowe described his custom pieces as “interactive.”
Crowe creates bowls, mugs, vases, and even jewellery coated with the ash glaze.
