A clowder of cats, a pack of dogs, a herd of alpacas, a school of fish. If your beloved pets are numerous, a single large gourd memorial urn ensures togetherness forever. The pictured gourd features 16 separate cat images, and a single bunny. This gourd is about 15 inches across, 51" in circumference and 15 inches tall, more than sufficient to contain the ashes of all, plus collars, toys and other mementos.

Through convos, the patron provided photos and stories and some color preference, then gave me creative freedom, and time to work. This piece took a little over nine weeks from first query to finished art. Your artful memorial may take less time or longer.

Each cat and the bunny is identified by name. A mirror fragment is inlaid by each name and ambient light produces a bit sparkle. I carved a few sentences about each animal on the bottom of the gourd.

The cartoon cat was reproduced from a drawing made by the patron many years ago.

Old newspaper type blocks were used to spell out the word: AGAPE, meaningful to the patron. The letters are backwards as is the nature of type blocks.

My memorial urns are important to me and I take great care in creating them. Your needs may be met with a smaller gourd. Or a larger gourd. Please convo me for personalized pricing. Small portraits can start at $75. Thank you.

    My Hickory spoon is beautiful! It will be displayed for awhile before I can use it. I love to just look at the quality work and beautiful wood.

    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.

    What a wonderful piece of art! It's stunning and'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!
