Funerary Boxes


For centuries, across Europe, earthly remains of saints were encased within embellished reliquaries. Their silent solemnity and sheltering qualities, as well as their intricate decorations, have inspired me to the making of funerary boxes. My materials, solely natural and finest quality, are in integrity with inspirations, and therefore sourced from within Europe. I work them with hand-tools, using traditional methods, to create containers which envelop the ashes in a most attentive manner.
