"In Memory of Us"
bronze, copper, sterling silver and 24kt gold. Lost wax casting and construction
Personal Collection of the Artist

This bronze urn in a shape of a dome is a final resting place for two people and their dog. and their love for each other.
The container is build as a sculptural group with three proportionate volumes for ashes and one central form unifying the three. It is built as a sculptural group represents a man, a woman, a dog and their animal guardian spirit. The shapes are derived from the results of my research on the Native American's use of animal imagery as guiding spirits and protectors. They are rendered as a 'human - animal metamorphose ' and are joined together with a fourth piece. The top element is in a shape of a sun, covered with gold, designed to lock the containers and symbolize the binding emotion by which these people wish to be remembered.
