CASTING ASHES

Arrow white large

At Casting Ashes® we create artisan cremation sculpture using our own designs and original moulds.   A husband and wife team, we embarked on this joint venture in 2017 combining our passions for sculpture and bereavement care. By adding cremation ash to the mould as the piece is being cast, the ashes are incorporated fully in to the sculpture. This differs to the conventional urn design which has a hollow cavity to contain ashes.  Each piece is limited edition, bearing our mark of authenticity, and every stage of the process is done by hand, by ourselves.  We do not contract out to other makers and this enables us to keep our prices affordable.  We pride ourselves on our unique specialised product and craftsmanship - indeed at the point of start up we are the first and only people offering this service.

"The sculpture that Noel created is perfect..."

"They were both very kind,

this meant a lot to me."

"I left some words and pictures of my Mum and was excited to see what Noel would do with them."

"When I returned to see the sculpture I couldn't have been happier."

"It really is beautiful."

 

 

"I sat with Jill and Noel and

chatted about my Mum."

"Thank you so much"

 

"Depending how I look at it I can see a

flame or a shell or a flower bud opening"

 

We try to be sustainable in our process and use Cornish granite dust sourced from a quarry just a few miles from our workshop in North Cornwall. We like to think this signifies our elemental connection to the earth.  It also provides a durable medium so that your sculpture will indeed be a lasting tribute to your loved one - something you can cherish for years to come and take with you if you move house.  We only cast a small amount of ashes so you can still choose to bury or scatter the remainder should you wish to do so.

As a relatively new start up business we are still developing our portfolio of designs.  If there is something in particular you would like that you do not see in our gallery, please talk to us about it.  We enjoy the creative process of working with you to meet your requirements and welcome your input.

 

We also accept commissions for bespoke sculpture and stained glass.

We want to hear from you

 

"A perfect way to keep my Mum's ashes"

 

All our designs can be ordered without ashes if you have no ashes to send

but would still like a remembrance sculpture for your home or garden.
