BROOKLYN, New York
Transfercare Protectors, Inc., a worldwide leader in the development of funereal technology, has commissioned artist Tom Pergola to be their first artist to design original and limited edition cremation urns for international sale and distribution.
The Funeral Fine Art Collection TM of sculptural urns will premier with four original Tom Pergola creations entitled "A Perfect World", "A Special Place", "Memories", and "Forever In My Heart". These unique works of art reflect a beautiful scene or object which embodies the perfect final resting place for a loved one.
Made out of solid cast bronze, they are strictly limited in edition, numbered, and signed by the artist. Weighing approximately 20 - 40 lbs. empty. Each piece was originally designed by the artist and then recreated in bronze using the lost wax process. Each urn is meticulously hand painted and then a final patina is applied. There is approximately 280 cubic inches of interior volume into which the cremains can be sealed. Each urn is also accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
An even more exclusive sculptural urn can be created for the collector who wishes to personally commission the artist to create a one of a kind piece of artwork reflecting their own specific desires. It could of course also be enjoyed as artwork well in advance of it's actual time of need.
