Every life is a work of art.

Laura Bruzzese

Paper Turtle artist, owner

I have been creating one-of-a-kind, handmade funerary urns since 2001, and designing biodegradable urns since 2009. My work is an expression of my connection with the earth, my love for the natural world, and sense of spirituality inclusive of many traditions. My urns have been sold in art galleries, retail, wholesale, and online outlets for more than fifteen years. I feel honored to help clients choose urns that best celebrate the lives of their loved ones (including pets), and believe that every urn has a home; it’s just a matter of when they find each other. I design/create, paint, carve, and glaze every ceramic urn myself. When I’m not working in my studio, I can be found reading, walking our old lady dog, or beguiling our three lazy, freeloading hens into egg laying that meets our omelette needs. read more >
