story funeral urns for friends

One of my first commissions was for a funeral urn for a delightful couple
Millie & Clausen.
They wanted one reflecting the desert and large enough for the both of them.
I pressed cholla skeleton into porcelain & hand built an oval. Meanwhile they
use it for a cookie jar & delight in telling phone salesmen trying to sell
them plots that they have their oun urn & use it to store cookies for now. I
plan to make an ash of myself too.
