Rainbow Bridge Urns

Making clay animals has been a love of mine since my hands first touched clay. I have been sculpting custom ceramic pet portraits and cremation urns for pets for the last 12 years.

These ceramic pet portraits can take the form of:

  • stand-alone whimsical sculptures¬†
  • set upon the lid of a keepsake ceramic urn
  • incorporated as part of a cremation urn

My aim is to capture the spirit of your pet. I work from photos, preferably from all sides, to show their unique markings and colourings. A photo that captures the pose that is uniquely theirs (along with a special toy if you wish) all help me create a lasting memory of your four-legged furry, hairy or feathered friend.

If having a simple urn for ashes without a portrait is your preference, I may have the perfect ceramic urn for the ashes of your pet in my home gallery.

My home gallery, Phoenix Gallery is beside Nanoose Bay between Parksville and Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, British Columbia.
