Description

✣ Due to high demand, please allow 4-6 weeks for me to create your lovely custom urn. ✣
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

With few stylish urn options available, I was inspired to design this elegant funerary vessel to express the eternal love we have for our pets. My signature design, The “Darling Ivory” Pet Urn, will serve as a lovely reminder of your beloved cat.

✦ PET PORTRAIT ✦
I'm now offering a popular customization option (previously only available by request) to have your own pet depicted as the sleeping kitty on top of the lid. Your pet's unique coat pattern and likeness will be depicted in numerous shades of my custom-tinted porcelain. When creating these custom kitties, I try to present a recognizable likeness of the cat and their markings using my proprietary coloration method. It won't be an exact replica, rather my artistic interpretation.✦ BONUS ✦ This option now includes coordinating accent dots and stripes (previously an additional $25 charge).

In order to do the portrait, I'll need at least 3 photos of your kitty (which you can send to me after placing your order):
1) Face / 2) Body + tail / 3) Back + shoulders
You can certainly send me more than 3 photos; that's just the minimum number I'll need.

This charming wheel-thrown porcelain jar features a plump organic contour with a smooth bare exterior. Its snugly-fit lid is adorned with an embossed filigree pattern, delicate glazed dots, and a sweet sleeping kitty in the center.

✦ ADD YOUR PET'S NAME ✦
You can also have this urn personalized with the name of your companion, handpainted by me on the front of the urn. Choose your favorite of 5 unique fonts, each created by independent designers. This option has an additional cost of $50 for a name in black, or $65 for a name in a color of your choosing.

✣✣Whichever font you choose will serve as a reference. Since the name will be painted by hand, please understand that it will contain slight variations from the original computer-generated font. These variations allude to the unique handmade nature of your urn. See photos for examples.


This lovingly-crafted piece should last for generations with proper handling and care.

• A lovely demi-glazed lidded jar with a smooth unglazed exterior and non-toxic clear-glazed interior.
• Smooth-sanded base to help prevent marring of table surfaces.
• Satin drawstring bag and care instructions included.
• Every item is made by hand, by me, in my Los Angeles studio.

✦ PRODUCT DIMENSIONS ✦
3.5” w x 5” (9 x 12.7 cm) h; approximate volume: 21 cubic inches
Suitable for holding the cremated remains of an average sized cat, small dog, or any animal up that weighed up to 16 lbs (approx. 7.25 kg).

✣✣ Please note: the volume of cremated remains can vary depending on the facility that conducts the cremation. I always encourage ordering a larger urn than you think you'll need, just to be safe. I have not received any customer complaints that their cat's remains did not fit inside my Darling Ivory Pet Urn, but please feel free to contact me before placing your order if you have any concerns.

▷ Even if your pet weighed less than 16lbs (7.25kg), this urn is an appropriate option. I include a pretty satin bag with each urn that you can place the bagged remains into, which takes up a bit more space inside the vessel. Many people also like to put other things inside the urn along with the remains such as tags/collars, notes, photos, whiskers or bits of fur. In that way it can serve as both an urn and a memory box.

✦WHEN PLACING YOUR CUSTOM ORDER ✦

♥ your sweet pet's breed or general appearance (ex: "Siamese". Or "Short-haired black cat with white spots")

As an animal lover, I know the immense pain that comes from losing a beloved pet. Your companion deserves a beautiful resting place that represents the precious space they occupied in your life, and in your heart.♥ Here at Long Love Memorials, I offer my finely-crafted memorials which are lovingly handmade by me - a real person who understands what you’re going through.

I'm so grateful to apply my skills (honed over 15 years in the fine art ceramics field) to creating dignified pet memorials with an unrivaled emphasis on elegance, quality, and craftsmanship. Each urn is thrown on the potter's wheel and crafted by hand in a lengthy process involving more than 20 steps from start to finish. This multi-step production process naturally ensures that each piece is unique and of the highest quality, rather than being quickly reproduced with a mold.

Please feel free to reach out with any questions, and read my FAQ section to learn more about me and my products.

Absolutely gorgeous urn. It was obviously crafted very carefully, it looks so delicate and beautiful.
Losing my baby was very hard and I never thought I would find an urn that suited him. This is better than I could have ever anticipated. The little painted kitty looks just like him and made me tear up when I saw it.
I cannot get over how perfect it is. I would happily purchase from LongLoveMemorials in the future.

FAQs

When an item is created by an independent artist, it is imbued with the uniqueness of their handmade process. I take immense pride in the craftsmanship and quality of my work; the items you purchase are backed by an intense devotion to my craft.

When you choose a Long Love Memorials urn, you’re investing in a finely-crafted memorial that was lovingly handmade by a real person - someone who understands what you’re going through. As an animal lover myself, I know the pain that comes from losing a beloved pet.
As a one-woman studio, I make work in small batches, creating every single urn by hand from start to finish.

Here’s a quick run-down of the steps involved:

I’ll throw a porcelain jar on the potter’s wheel and allow it to dry overnight. I’ll refine the shape, trim the jar, create & carefully fit the lid, & add details and attachments. The jar & lid will slowly dry out over 5 days before being fired in a kiln for 2 days. After that, I’ll sand & clean the object, glaze it, and stamp it with my logo before putting it into the kiln again for its final firing to 2200 degrees F. Once the final firing is complete, I’ll carefully inspect the object for any defects, and then I’ll sand the entire porcelain jar to make it smooth & lovely.
Typically, 1lb of live weight = 1 cubic inch of volume. This is the general rule for both animals &humans. Ex: if your pet weighed 12lbs before death, you will need an urn with at least a 12 cubic inch capacity.

It’s important to understand that the cremated remains will likely come in a plastic bag with a metal closure. Keeping the remains in that bag could take up additional space in the urn. Some people also put special keepsakes inside the urn. Furthermore, if you’d like to store the remains of more than one pet in the same vessel (either immediately or in the future), you’d want to pick a much larger urn.

For these reasons, I encourage people to choose an urn that is at least 5 cubic inches larger than what they think they'll need.
Currently, my primary option for dog owners is the Capsule Urn. Alternatively, you can order the Darling Ivory Urn without the cat figurine on top. If you need a larger dog urn option, either of those two designs can be made in a larger size to accommodate the remains.

I am also working on some additional urn designs for dogs, which I will introduce later this year.

If you would like a different urn for your dog than is listed here, please contact me to place a custom order.
I currently offer a variety of keepsake jars which are a suitable “memory box” size for holding a partial amount of cremated remains, or the full cremains of small animals or infants. If you would like something more personalized, I can design a custom container for your needs. Contact me with your inquiry.
Having done this myself for family members, I can attest that transferring remains can be an incredibly emotional and difficult task.

Unfortunately, I cannot personally offer this service to customers because my studio is not the appropriate sterile environment. However, rather than trying to muster the courage to do it yourself, simply contact your veterinarian or funeral home. They can easily and quickly conduct this transfer for you, oftentimes at no cost.
In addition to- or in the absence of- cremated remains, many people use my jars to stow precious keepsakes such as small photos, hand-written notes, tags, locks of fur, and whiskers.

Some customers also simply enjoy having these jars as display items in their homes.
I’m happy to include a small gift card with your purchase at no additional charge. During checkout, please indicate that your order is a gift, and leave the message there, or send me a separate email.
Dirt and stains on smooth, unglazed surfaces can be cleaned with a soft scrub brush and some baking soda mixed with water. Textured, unglazed surfaces (such as the lid of the Darling Ivory Urn) should be gently cleaned with a soft sponge and soapy water, taking care not to scrub too hard. Metal marks from jewelry or silverware can be removed with a cleaning product called Bar Keepers Friend.

Using harsh cleaning agents or abrasive tools on Long Love Memorials items is strongly discouraged, as it could damage the surface of the porcelain. I cannot be held responsible for damage that occurs from cleaning.
