Tell the Story Memorial Urn - Custom Order
A comfort to pet and human is rubbing the paw; we come to know our pet's foot. I'll include a close image of your pet's foot if it triggers a memory for you.
My urns are important to me. We may speak on the phone, communicate via email. I will need photos. Tell me if your pet had an ear that didn't stand up straight. Tell me if your cat's tail was shorter than most. Details matter to me. Tell me colors you like and colors you can't abide. I will think about your pet and dream about your pet and together we'll create a functional piece of highly personal art. The chosen gourd will be sufficient to contain cremains, a favorite toy, leash, collar.
Usually four to six images of one animal are portrayed, sized to fit according to my aesthetic eye. It may be more. It may be less. They'll be sketched then painted.
I also create memorial gourd urns in honor of beloved humans.
The gourd will arrive in a recycled shipping box, nested in recycled packing material. A gourd sheet providing a brief overview of humankind's long relationship with gourds, and a hand-painted gift bag, and tissue (both made from post-consumer paper) included so you're good to go for gifting.
Start to finish is usually about 30 days. Shipping NOT included. Shipping costs to be determined upon completion of piece, dependent on gourd size, etc.

Thank you so much for my beautiful memorial urn! It's beauty and sentiment touches my heart every time I look at it. Your patience and dedication to every detail is greatly appreciated, as is your talent and passion for the beautiful artwork you create, which shines at every angle. Thank you and looking forward to ordering again in the future!!!Reviewed by anuckols
The gourd turned out great and I have my Buddy's ashes in a nice place that is not depressing (like the urns you can get when your dog is cremated). Jan is very responsive and the images of my dog on the gourd bring back great memories. The whole process of sending images for the gourd made a very depressing loss much more bearable. Highly recommended.Reviewed by julsjam

These are just wonderful, thank you so much. Talented artist and excellent customer service.Reviewed by julsjam
What a wonderful piece of art! It's stunning and usable...it's a box! This piece is one of the finest gourds I have ever seen. Beautiful art and very thick walled! It should last for hundreds of years. I read about the artist; Jan Meng in a book titled; "Beyond the basics gourd art" by David Macfarlane. I have also seen her on T.V. and in galleries. I have collected gourd art for many years now. I must say she is at the top of her field and highly respected for her art! The piece was shipped at lighting speed and arrived in perfect condition! It was a pleasure dealing personally with Jan Meng! She kept me informed on every step of the shipment and it was packed to perfection. I must say I got a great deal on the piece! I have seen her work go for much more in the galleries. I will check etsy for more pieces. My fellow gourd art collecting friends are green with envy that I purchased a Jan Meng piece! I'm thrilled!Reviewed by eggshellmosaicgirl
