Journey Boxes, Urns, and customized Vessels for a variety of milestones in life and beyond…

I was recently commissioned to create a set of small journey boxes so that each family member could have a remembrance of their mother. What a beautiful way to share the love.

Evangeline Hemrick interviews Bonnie Hitchcock on the podcast, Scared to Sacred. Bonnie shares the story of her Journey Boxes and how to make death more sacred and less scary.

“Today marks the one year passing of my husband. As you know the journey is not an easy one in the grieving process. I was blessed to have master potter and friend Bonnie Hitchcock to fashion an urn for my husband’s ashes. We met several times and I brought several keepsakes with me to imprint on his urn such as his Eagle Scout pin, our wedding rings that he made, other jewelry he had made me, etc. Bonnie was so reverent in the handling of his ashes—we put a small amount in the clay and even in the top itself. We prayed over them and my tears also went into the clay. The urn was inscribed on one side and the other side was left untouched. Bonnie had me use a test piece to see how the items looked when pressed into the clay. I am so proud of the urn that was fashioned with love—and I know my husband is too!”
