Turned this Urn for a lady who owns show horses and has some ashes from a horse that had to be put down.
The majority of the ashes where scattered in the paddock. It is made from Silver Birch and the burning was my
idea of hoof prints but got carried away. 8” tall 5” diam didn’t measure the volume just went by what size she indicated anyway any ashes left over can be scattered with the others. Dollars in the pocket is the important part and she has contacts in Melbourne interested in urns.

Beautiful job Bob. I am certain that the lady who you made this for is comforted that the ashes of the horse she loved is in such a beautiful urn.

Thanks for sharing
