'It emerges like a magic treasure in an ocean.'
The ammonite is one of the most collectable and highly sought out fossil stones due to its spiral shape which symbolizes continual change and evolution.
Cremation ashes are added to the cement during the casting process, making this a discrete and stylish contemporary alternative to a traditional urn. Can be placed indoors as a focal piece or outdoors as a garden sculpture.
Using a staggered casting process the the aged 'fractured' effect is achieved, shown at its best with contrasting two-tone. This means your order can be customised, including the addition of a third colour according to your taste and decor requirement.

AMMONITE IN WARM EARTHY TONES
Our concrete is made using locally sourced crushed granite dust to which we add a polymer bonding agent to make the concrete frost proof and waterproof.
Cremation ashes are mixed into the cement as the cast is being poured so it becomes a solid piece of cremation sculpure as opposed to a hollow urn.
With the addition of cremation ashes the cement aggregate becomes a unique composition - making each piece is a new creation with its own character and charm. This includes surface markings such as granular patterns and air bubbles that naturally occur in the artisan process. Therefore please bear in mind that photos shown are for display only. Direct replication is impossible, so with a tonal choice for example colour match may not be exact as the pigment to cement ratio may differ slightly.
Photos are for demonstration purposes only. Being made to order, your pebble will be unique with its own distinctive colour tone, markings and character as part of the artisan process.
