Earth Vessels are created by Beth.
All Earth Vessels are handmade in my studio in Blackawton, near the beautiful coastal town of Dartmouth in Devon.
I am an artist and qualified counsellor, specialising in loss. Through my own experiences, I was drawn to combine these two threads in my life and create special cremation urns which I hope will help people to grieve the passing of their loved ones and be a unique memorial to them.
I love working with textiles and my urns are fabric and mixed media artworks, made of hardened fabric with a method I developed myself over years of experimentation.
My dog Mali (shown above!) takes me daily into the natural world. While walking I am drawn to and collect natural materials and earth pigments which I incorporate onto the surfaces of some of the urns. The landscapes of my walks inspire both textures and images on the urns.
Earth Vessels can be embellished in so many different colours and textures, they can have images, photographs, words, poems .. they can hopefully be whatever your heart needs ..
