Chronicle Cremation Design Turns Remains into Dinnerware

Whether to help carry on the memory of a loved one or for artistic purposes, Chronicle Cremation Design can create ceramic dishware using the crematory remains of a person. The process is the creation of New Mexico-based artist Justin Crowe and enables the implementation of ashes into dishware of a variety of different styles.

The Chronicle Cremation Design was born out of Crowe's art project, 'Nourish,' which has utilized the remains of around 200 anonymous people that were collected from bone dealers. Orders for ceramic dishware including plates, mugs and bowls can be made with the ashes of a loved one able to be infused into the creations. This enables consumers to keep a touch of a loved one close without having to keep them in a traditional urn.
