I created the Ashkeepers as vessels of purpose, encouragement for all who have experienced loss to generate rituals for remembering loved ones.
The Ashkeeper is designed to be handled and utilised as opposed to sealing it up and putting it away in a dark cupboard. The lid of the Ashkeeper inverts to become a candle holder. You can create your own type of ritual that is meaningful to you, in your own space where you can handle the Ashkeeper, listen to music and light a candle to remember, nourish and replenish your body with memories of your loved one.
