Information and Guidance for Art Created with Cremation Ashes
Many are not aware that they are constantly surrounded by art. Simple things such as the design on your favorite t-shirt, to the architecture of the building where you live is in one way or another a work of art. Art is also an important part of our human history, as it is through this ancient skill that we have gained vast knowledge of how we as a species have developed over time. It goes without saying that, unfortunately, it is an underrated necessity that plays a role in almost every aspect of the world we live in. That said, it is very interesting that while art surrounds us our entire lives, it is now being incorporated like never before, to create distinctive and unforgettable visual tributes, at times of loss.
Cremation Art is a relatively new memorial concept that is gaining more popularity, especially as more and more people are turning to cremation for their final disposition. To create a piece of cremation art, an artist incorporates a small amount of cremation ashes into a stunning work of art. These pieces range from breathtaking paintings to whimsical sculptures and even ‘cremation’ jewelry. The variety of options offers a selection for just about any taste. For those looking for a discreet tribute to keep in their place of work, a glass paperweight in which the cremation ashes swirl mixed with beautiful array of colors would be ideal. There are also elegant, modern oil paintings for those wishing for a stately remembrance. While many of the pieces incorporate the cremation ashes permanently, there are also small keepsake sculptures, in which the family can place a small amount of ashes to create a remembrance that is appropriate for display in any setting. The keepsake creamtion jewelry is a small pendant or even memorial bead that can be threaded onto a bracelet. This wearable work of art offers a way to keep a small part of a loved one close at all times in a true masterpiece. These classic remembrances offer a way to memorialize someone in a way that is as unique as the person it is for, as well as the person it pays tribute to.
