After my beloved dog died, I wanted to find a special urn unique to him. I was drawn to the designs by Michelle Kaisersatt of Keyhole Studio which evoke a simple elegance & intrinsic connection to nature -- an excellent match for what I was seeking. I wrote to Michelle with my ideas for a custom urn and we worked together in a collaborative process on shape, size, texture & color. Michelle is thoughtful, communicative & detailed. With her skills, she creatively brought my ideas to life. She asked about my dog's personality as these details helped to inspire her creation. Her packing skills in shipping this piece to me safely were unsurpassed! I am very pleased and 100% satisfied with the outcome of this process. This original vessel truly honors the memory of my dear boy. I highly recommend the art of Michelle Kaisersatt!

I really appreciate the exquisite craftsmanship of this urn. I needed something special to hold my cat's ashes, and this urn is perfect. The finish is a little more dull and the color a little less red than I was expecting, which I suppose is due to the flash used to photograph it. Nevertheless, it's beautiful. Michelle promptly shipped the urn to me after my purchase.

Michelle was a pleasure to buy from, creating a lovely custom designed Gingko urn. She kept me informed through the whole process and was very clear. Could not be happier with the entire process and the lovely hand carved sculpture she has made. Can not recommend Michelle enough.

About

The Soul Remains in Urns & Keepsakes

The Soul Remains in Urns & Keepsakes
Creating art is a very reflective, even spiritual process for me.
Acquiring a piece of art is also a reflection of who you are. What drives you. What is your core.
When selecting a piece, it may be for enjoyment in a favorite reflection spot, to house treasures or memories, as a gift, for its pure beauty, or a true honor: as a vessel to hold a loved one’s ashes.
Art is personal. It always has been. It represents the very essence of living and loving. And can be hard to search for.
I believe each piece should capture life through eyes of love, beauty, exuberance, and richness. To celebrate - life.

When you decide to purchase an artfully hand-crafted lidded jar or keepsake - for yourself - or for a loved one – fill the vessel with precious memories. This may mean momentos, notes, stories, or trinkets. The most important thing? Love.

My wish for you is that your search brings you exactly what you are looking for.

Living fully – carving a life,
Michelle at the Keyhole Studio

A bit about the shipping process.
Medium and Large Vessels: 275# double walled packing boxes are used, wrapping the vessels with organic cotton first to ensure no abrasion occurs from shifting during shipping. Self-expanding packing materiel offers solid and secure packaging around the vessel during shipment. The packaging foam will be in 2 or 3 sections dependent on the size of the vessel and box. The self-expanding packing can be reused for transporting the vessel whenever needing to be moved, however ‘shipments’ outside of returns are not recommended with the self-expanding packaging.
Smaller Vessels: Wrapped in organic cotton these parcels will be placed in a shipping container with cotton and peanuts to fill any voids and ensure safe shipping.

Bronze pieces: These are wrapped individually in cotton batting, and then placed in a individual hardboard boxes. Placed in a USPS small shipping box with organic cotton surrounding the individual box(es), up to 2 keepsakes can be packaged and placed inside of the small USPS shipping box.

All vessels will have full insurance during shipment.
International customs fees are additional and the responsibility of the recipient.
