HUSTED & ZINGELER White Urn - Bedford Carving

HUSTED & ZINGELER White Urn - Bedford 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 mimic the streamline bedform patterns left by glaciers as they slowly passed through the Calgary - Canmore corridor. 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. Each end has a unique profile – one concave, one convex – to make this an interesting and dynamic object that offers an opportunity for a grieving or memorial ritual to take place around it.

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