Barney was our amazing, quirky, unique moggy who looked like a Russian Blue (but wasn’t!) He lived for 17 years and our family adored him. He had the characteristics of a dog but the ease of a cat! He was a true character and very much part of the family. His end of life was specially arranged to take place at home, and we opted for an individual cremation as we wished to have his ashes.
Then the family discussions began! We all agreed we wanted something ornamental that could be placed in the home for the family to be able to see every day. Something different and contemporary. We decided we’d like an ornamental standing letter B! The ashes to be incorporated into the grout and the mosaic pieces to be made from Barney’s ceramic pot food & water bowls. That way it really would be a “piece of Barney”. We commissioned the work and were all absolutely delighted with the result.
Barney B sits on our kitchen windowsill. The whole family get to see him every day. Aside from the sentimental value, it’s a quirky piece of art and a great talking piece! I haven’t seen anything else like it and thought how great it would be to make for others and provide the same precious keepsake and joy we receive from ours. So, after lessons learning the tricks of the trade and lots of practice, Memory Mosaics was born!
Every Memory Mosaic is handmade and lovingly crafted by me. Your Memory Mosaic will be a one-off and totally unique, just like your pet. Incorporating their ashes and precious belongings to cherish forever.
