A special handcrafted cremation urn can be a wonderful and comforting tribute for a lost pet.  In any culture, pets become close friends and companions and often are an integral part of a family.  The loss of a pet can be a very difficult thing to experience and recover from.

Many pet owners choose cremation as an option to handle their pet's earthly remains.  Choosing a special vessel for these cremains can be a way to honor your pet and also provide a way to keep your pet's memory in daily view.  As a pet owner who has lost a number of treasured and very well loved pets over the years, I can understand the need to grieve and to remember with a smile in your heart.  I design my urns with this in mind.

My Malloryville Pottery ceramic studio is located south of Syracuse and north of Binghamton, NY in the heart of the beautiful Central NY Finger Lakes area.  Much of my creative inspiration in choosing glazes and designs comes from the beautiful landscapes around me.  I have been in business since 2009, but have been learning and loving to be a potter since the 1970's.

 Fairmount Animal Hospital

 

I started this online store as a way to easily offer my pet urns to clients of veterinary clinics in the area.  Fairmount Animal Hospital, in Syracuse, NY is a primary contact site for my pet urns.  This clinic has  outstanding and compassionate services for pet post-life care including special facilities for euthanasia and support to help pet owners and their families get through the loss of a pet. I am proud to be able to advertise my handmade urns through this facility.
