Ashes to Art® Online Catalogue

Welcome to the online presentation of FUNERIA’s 5th biennial international Ashes to Art® exhibition.

The exhibition in FUNERIA’s Northern California Art Honors Life® gallery officially concluded with a reception on December 19, 2010 so that sold pieces could be collected or shipped to their new owners. A superb selection from the 5th biennial, however, including award-winning pieces, remains available.

In fact, the gallery often features 200 unique funerary artworks and artist-made cremation urns or more at all times. It has become a destination for visitors throughout North America and the world. It remains unique in demonstrating the value and essential beauty in developing and promoting a contemporary funerary art genre… offering a bridge between the very best artists who are creating meaningful work and those who need exactly that to honor a life they’ve loved.

Appointments are encouraged as gallery hours are not posted except as scheduled during exhibitions.

Conveniently here, however, we hope you enjoy seeing the work of all finalists who will remain online, even if sold, through October 2011. Please call or email FUNERIA for availability or to inquire about additional work by the same artist. Special requests and commissioned art inquiries are always welcomed. Soon, you will also have the opportunity to purchase a printed exhibition catalogue that will showcase these works, and all award recipients in FUNERIA’s four exhibitions since 2001.

With the exception of artist Nancy Josephson’s own Lifetime urn, prices are listed within the text below the images.

Note that all artists retain all rights to the reproduction of their artwork. While images and content are available for editorial review, they may not be used for commercial purposes to promote anything but the individual artists represented in this exhibition and Ashes to Art® exhibitions presented by FUNERIA®.

    Congratulations to all the artists displaying such excellence in the different forms of their ashes vessels – they are senstive, superbly crafted and full of personality. My vote goes to my fellow Melburnian from Australia, Avis Gardner – I love what she does with paper clay.

    I cast my vote for “Liberte” by artist Christine Belton…although there were many I really enjoyed!

    Chad is my nephew and I have seen the most extraordinary, creative, well constructed, imaginative and just genius work come out of him. The family has been sharing his work for years and it is just super to be a part of his art life as he shares his talents with us and the world. He keeps expanding his artistic horizons with design and medium that are unbelievable.
