HUSTED & ZINGELER Grey Urn - Workings Carving

HUSTED & ZINGELER Grey Urn - Workings Carving


This Urn was part of an exhibition of contemporary funeral vessels from the fall of 2018, entitled Shelter For What Remains.

The form was wheel-thrown by myself, then adorned with carving by artist Kristine Zingeler. These particular carvings reference the Southern Alberta landscape and follow the workings of the Carey coal mine near Canmore.

The urn itself is made up of two separate halves of equal depth. The closure includes a deep, trough-like gallery that can cleanly accommodate a bead of silicone or wax sealant if permanent or semi-permanent closure is desired.

This specific piece is reserved for exhibition. However, commissions featuring the shown form and Workings pattern, or something custom, are welcome.
