Welcome to Nadine Jarvis’ cremation creations.
These are both excellent ideas, well thought through and very creative solutions to dealing with death and well, …. the body. Cremation is increasingly popular as opposed to burial. The trouble is for some people it’s difficult to know what to do with the ashes.
The Bird Feeders are available in two constructions: one being a solid casting of bird food, beeswax and ashes, and the other, rotationally molded with the ashes held inside. The feeders attract birds to nosh and naturally purge the ash or peck through the edible exterior, enabling the ashes to be released over time. After the feeder has completely disintegrated, the perch containing information about the deceased is the only thing left and becomes a keepsake.
Carbon Copies are pencils made from the carbon produced during the cremation of the deceased. One cadaver is enough to produce a lifetime supply of these very “personal” pencils. Your dearly beloved can help you with writing letters, sketching, and putting together such mundane things as the weekly shopping list.
