Clowder Of Cats Memorial Gourd Urn

I just finished one of the most endearing and challenging commissions of my career.







The patron wanted a gourd of sufficient size to contain the cremains and mementos of 12 cats. I painted the images of those cats on the outside of the gourd, plus the images of four other cats, PLUS one bunny! These beloved animals were all rescued. 

She also wanted reference to the Rainbow Bridge. I added inlaid bits of mirror at the name of each cat and the bunny. When ambient light strikes just so, the mirror twinkles.

The lavender color is taken directly from the lavender in my garden.

The cartoon cat image was reproduced from a drawing the patron did years ago of her beloved first cat, Ovid.
