The Ashkeeper has arrived and it is beautiful. Thank you so much for the care you have put into making this special piece Ashley. I will cherish it for a very long time.
Probably my favorite tangible item that I own, this Ashkeeper is one-of-a-kind. I love having this amazing piece to lay my mom to rest in. One that doesn’t scream “death” but instead screams “beauty”. It took a long time, yes. It’s expensive, yes. But Ashley puts her heart into making these pieces and the end result is worth all of it. She shipped it from Australia to the US. It was perfectly protected and beautifully wrapped. There’s no way this would have been damaged in shipping! I highly recommend buying an Ashkeeper for your loved one. They are so unique and beautifully, perfectly made. They do not look like mass-produced, “Remains go here” urns. These are timeless pieces that truly represent the beauty of the people we put inside them. They keep them alive.
It was a wonderful morning when I found out about Ashley’s Ashkeepers in Frankie magazine. She has filled a blank in my check list of things to do before I die. I don’t want my ashes to end up in a grey plastic box under a table in the spare room. Ashley has designed a bespoke Ashkeeper for me covered with Australian leaves - it can happily rest on a table in the house or in the garden or even in the forest around our farm. I love the thought, in future, of my family being able to invert the lid and light a candle for a reflective moment. Thank you Ashley, you translated my wishes perfectly and I can enjoy my Ashkeeper on my bookcase until it is needed.
Thank you Ashley for helping me to give my precious cat Fionn the beautiful resting place she deserves. When I placed her into the Ashkeeper, it felt like she truly came home. The frangipani design reminds me of the 19 happy summers I had with her and because it sparks such joy I look at if often and remember. Ashley was very patient with me and helped get the design just right. The result is perfect. Although I cried as I burnt the first of many candles for her, it was with a much lighter heart. The Ashkeeper is so beautiful and has a comforting sense of calm about it. The care and love that went into making it is obvious. It has pride of place in my home and is now my most treasured possession. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I love it! I was beside myself when I got it all unwrapped, it’s even more beautiful and perfect than the pictures. It’s precious, everything I could have hoped for and more. I am so happy with it. You are so talented and I feel very lucky to have found you Ashley. This is certainly now my most treasured possession. I was impressed at how well you packed the Ashkeeper, I can tell you took a lot of time and effort to make sure it arrived here in America in perfect condition, and it did.I lit a candle and moved Scarlet’s ashes over immediately. It was definitely a sad moment but I felt so good knowing I’ve given her the final resting place that she deserves. She gave me so much unconditional love in her life and I feel honored to be able to give her this Ashkeeper and keep her with me forever. I can’t thank you enough for this beautiful piece of art. You were patient and accommodating as I requested special touches. Please never stop making these! I can only imagine how people have been incredibly comforted with your compassionate art.Thank you a million times!
When we started looking for an urn we couldn’t find anything that seemed like us. We were so grateful when a friend recommended Ashley. Ashley’s Ashkeepers are pieces of art - a perfect fusion of beauty and practicality - finally we had found something that felt like the right fit for us and our beloved daughter. We absolutely loved our Ashkeeper when it arrived and continue to do so. Ashely was great to deal with. She took time to talk through the piece with us and include small personal details within the design. She was always considerate of what we were going through, and this shines through into her work - you can feel the love and compassion she puts into each piece. We would highly recommend.
It’s so beautiful - even more so than in the photos. Thanks so much for working with me to make it perfect.
It’s exactly 3 months to the day today since my precious Mary’s cremation. We had a small ceremony today where her ashes were transferred to her beyond words perfectly beautiful Ashkeeper. You are an amazing artist Ashley and a beautiful generous spirit, a fact reflected in your works. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart. With much love and gratitude.
We love that Peter rests in such a beautiful Ashkeeper; I feel the warmth and love that you have embedded into the making of it when I hold it in my arms. Thank you so very much Ashley.
The Ashkeeper finally arrived and I have unpacked it - I had a big cry when I saw it – it’s perfect! Thank you so much. I couldn’t have asked for anything better – it is beautiful. I was touched by your thoughtfulness and understanding. You are a talented and caring person Ashley and I am so thankful I found you and your amazing Ashkeepers.
I love it. It is everything I was hoping for. SO much more meaningful than the standard one the crematorium sell you. You are amazing. Many, many thanks Ashley.
From the moment I saw Ashley’s work I knew an Ashkeeper was going to be the connection to my boy Bruce. Throughout the Ashkeeper design process Ashley was sensitive and compassionate, and so willing to collaborate to create a final resting place for the most important boy in my life. Bruce’s Ashkeeper makes me smile every time I look at it and has helped my healing and grieving process enormously. Endless gratitude to you Ashley.
One of the most insightful concepts brought to a life of beauty by Ashley. Keeping my mother’s ashes close by is important to me and the Ashkeeper not only looks intrinsically beautiful in its artisanal design and hand crafted nature, but when held it sits perfectly embraced in a loving and nurturing way.A thing of beauty, of dignity, of loving care. Part of my life every day in my home.Thank you, Ashley, for creating a visible and ongoing life memory of beauty for my mother.
Ford’s Ashkeeper is safely home... The journey to collect the Ashkeeper from you Ashley has been part of the healing process, and to have met the maker of our Ashkeeper - the circle seems complete. We will cherish the Ashkeeper and the clever hands that created it. We love Ford so dearly and miss him so much everyday, we now have the beauty of the Ashkeeper to keep him safe and warm.
Every year as the anniversary of my mums death arrives I light a candle, play one of her songs and reminisce on the memories I hold close to my heart. And for every one of those years I yearned for something special, something tangible that I could hold - a precious vessel to contain a number of priceless treasures that belonged to my beautiful mum. Recently, I received one of Ashley Fiona’s Ashkeepers as a gift. I am in awe of the carefully painted detail that has gone into the design - The spherical shape fragile yet robust in its creation. Memories of my mum and my beloved treasures that belonged to her finally have a beautiful place to be held and remembered. This stunning vessel holds pride of place in my home for all to see. Thank you Ashley Fiona for investing your time and love into this precious vessel. My Ashkeeper provides a sense of peace and beauty when remembering my mum, thank you so much Ashley xxx
Ashley, it is just beautiful. Thank you ever so much. It is a stunning piece in our home and is a beautiful memento to our mothers - It is precisely the gentle and serene piece I was visualising.
I contacted Ashley Fiona because I knew the sacred Ashkeepers she creates would complete mine and my beautiful Ted’s journey. I found Ashley’s special and spiritual gift to be everything I had hoped for. The Hummingbird Ashkeeper has helped me by finding spiritual peace and happiness after the loss of the most beloved person I have ever known. The Hummingbird is everything I yearned for and more. Ted was the most gentle, sweet, unassuming and beautiful person anyone could ever have been lucky enough to know and I wish I could share more of him with you Ashley. Thank you for creating such a unique and beautiful vessel for my beloved Ted. I would recommend Ashley Fiona’s Ashkeepers to anyone searching for a distinctly beautiful and sensitive way to help cherish the memories of those loved and lost.
