Melody's Cremation Urn

Melody's departure was untimely and tragic.

She was an early fan and supporter of Aril Memorial.  We provided her with a pet cremation urn for her cat Moneypenny.  Melody's sister approached us to come up with something unique for her sibling.

While we were glad to be chosen for the honor and given the chance to work through the experimental processes used to create the work, it is a weird thing to experience parallel excitement and dread.

The fabrication of a vacuum kiln for drying rough-turned blanks was an important component of the process.  An additional chamber for pressure casting will also be a necessary addition to our shop for subsequent iterations of this design.
