All are on birch wood plates.  , Right: Inipi Wolf 3

Although each image comes from the same  basic outline, they have taken on differences during the wood burning process.  I used a black and white photograph of Wolf to make these images.  Each seems to have taken on its own life in the images.

Left: I usually keep a limited selection of Cremation Urns in stock. They are a variety of woods and styles and can be customized as was the case with the one shown on the left. The uusual style is similar to this one and has a storage area under the top to place personal objects / mementos that people wish to keep with the ashes. Although I prefer advance orders with specific requirments, this is not always possible and is the reason I do keep some units in stock. However, that means slection is also limited.
