The Architect and the Urn – exhibition in Seattle

In all the funeral planning research I’ve done, one of the most amazing monuments I’ve seen was made of  solid glass by a Seattle company, Lundgren Monuments.  Once you’ve seen them, you’ll never forget these extraordinary pieces of art.

Lundgren Monuments is the collaboration between two professional glass artists, Jim Nelsen and Greg Lundgren.

June 3-18, 2010 in Seattle,  Lundgren Monuments is hosting an exhibition of urns. As stated in their press release:

Lundgren Monuments is proud to present The Architect and the Urn – a west coast exploration of the cremation urn as architectural object, June 3 – July 18, 2010. Over thirty architects from Seattle to Los Angeles approach the design and concept of housing human ash in this complex and conceptually rich exhibition.
