CRYSTAL URNS for both household and cemetery
How do we perceive death? How sacred is human ash. Does it mean anything to us? Is it a reminder, symbol or just pile of inorganic black matter. Should we build huge pompous tombs, pyramids, mausoleums or just scatter ourselves in the wind? If time is a flat circle, what is happening after we die? If time is linear, where is it heading, where is the end?
Design in not only for the living. We spend so much money on our deceased and yet this field has not changed much over last hundred years. It just switched marble for artificial stone, precious metals for plastic, dignity for shame. I am entering this neglected field with concepts far away from regular production and yet the aesthetics end ideas are based on tradition and history.
“Family Chapel” as a small crystal chapel for several stackable urns. Aesthetics of this family reliquary reflects the Christian tradition and with its small size its is suitable for both household and columbarium. Each container can carry a name of the departed. The urn is sealed by aluminium copper plated lid. Base is made of Carrara marble. Family chapel was designed as a personal altar and so on top of the upper urn there is a place for memorable objects protected by the crystal dome.
