Asheville, NC. This episode features 4 of the nearly 40 artists featured on Bereavementartists.com. The website acts as a free directory of creatives from across the United States who create unique, heart-full pieces to honor a loved one who has died. In addition to works of art, the artists and artisans of Bereavement Artists also produce jewelry, urns, teddy bears, portraits, and home decor using the photos, belongings and even cremains of loved ones, be they people or pets.
In this podcast, Joanne Zerdy speaks to two of the three original co-founders of the website, artists Gina Klawitter and Teresa Dunwell, as well as current administrator and memory artist Nancy Gershman and fellow artist Sybil Sage.
