The ring box set arrived quickly. The design and craftsmanship are impeccable. The lids fit snugly and are very satisfying to open and seal shut. This will make a very special wedding gift for close friends, and I am very pleased and excited to give it to them. Thanks so much, Chris!
We design and build works of art and fine craft that keep memories close.
Chris and Shelley Harvan met while Drawing majors at The Cleveland Institute of Art. We have been creating custom works of memorialization since 2004-ish. Applying our varied talents in this fashion feels more right than any other creative endeavor we have ever taken on.
Turning this into an official, sustainable business has been a goal that we have been progressively realizing - Etsy being the primary online method for sales
Our product lines are in development and our avenues for wholesale and retail are growing. We still take on limited patronage for custom works of art that are urns, keepsake boxes, shadowboxes, personal reliquaries, and framed portraits. We design for and work with just about any material.

Previously our work has been commission-based. We are just starting to bring products to market. Most of our urns take a significant amount of time, investment in tooling, and great practice as craftspeople. Our keepsake items rely on those same commodities, but are designed to be produced in small batches, and therefore are priced more affordably.

Refunds and Exchanges
Working with with it for over 20 years, you learn how to build in insurance and longevity into pieces. Our goal is museum quality, heirloom works of art. We do not expect our work to fail or break without outside influence. However....
If, for some reason, material fails under normal use. we will replace item. If our engineering fails, we will replace or refund at your preference. In both unlikely circumstances, we will need photos to try to assess the situation to figure out the best way to proceed.
We ask that you consider your purchases carefully. A return on whim would be very difficult for us. Please feel free to ask for additional photos or information on a product to be sure you are going to be happy with it. We would LOVE to hear from you and assist you.
Additional policies and FAQs
Aside from local and state laws and ordinances, you do not have to feel obligated to follow any social rule or tradition when it comes to cremains and honoring the deceased. Your healing is personal. If you have chosen one of our products, you are likely going to be confortable with keeping it on display. Artwork has been used to honor the dead as long as we have been taking tool to materials. Do not let anyone else's opinion affect your personal path. The only person you need permission from is yourself.
We are very much interested in custom orders and wholesale.
