Designer Erna Huppelschoten processes cremation ashes into personal porcelain. Raw porcelain material is mixed with the ashes with great care. To eternalize someone in porcelain, cherry-stone seeds are tied like pearls into an endless necklace. The seeds and pits are a metaphor for lifecycles. Now you can carry your passed away grandma around your neck!
After the cremation, the ashes can become eternalized in a jewel, object or urn made of porcelain. A personal porcelain, assembled with great care with raw material and the ashes. The mold is made from cherry-stones, and the casted porcelain seeds are tied like pearls into an endless necklace. Seeds and pits as a metaphor for lifecycles.
Joseph Campbell: “The experience of eternity right here and now is the function of life. Heaven is not the place to have the experience; here is the place to have the experience.” “Eternity is not something of the future, it has nothing to do with time. Eternity is the dimension of here and now that crosses out all the temporarily thinking.
