Shine On Brightly offers artist-created cremation vessels and custom memorial art pieces to honor the deceased. Their mission states:
“We believe that art has the power to heal, to unite, and to express felling when words sometimes can’t be found.”
The company was launched in 2008, an attempt to respond artistically to the changing attitude surrounding life and death. Shortly after founding the company, Founder Adrienne Crowther experienced a series of events that shook up her life and further committed her to the importance of memorial.
Fifteen months after founding the company, Crowther’s husband of twenty-nine years died unexpectedly, and nine months later, her sister-in-law and close childhood friend died. The experiences solidified Crowther’s dedication to “honoring a spirit with art and beauty.” This dedication is shown through the work of the artists who contribute to Shine On Brightly.
Shine On Brightly offers a variety of cremation vessels and memorial art, including…
…biodegradable urns, made from recycled, natural, and foraged materials and free of toxic substances…
…a variety of beautifully-crafted urns in glass, ceramic, metal, and wood…
…“keepsake urns”– vessels meant to hold a small amount of ashes, for those who want to share cremation remains among loved ones, or to scatter the remains and keep a small amount.
They also offer custom memorial quilts, paintings, jewelry, and books. For more information, check out their website at www.shineonbrightly.com.Photo Source:
