When artist Justin Crowe’s grandfather passed away, he decided he needed to honour the memories he had with him in a new way.

The ceramicist started a project, in which he took the bones of 200 people, ground them up and made a dinnerwear set called Nourish.

Inspired by the venture, Justin began making custom orders for people who wished to infuse the memory of their loved ones into an everyday object.

His business, called Chronical Cremations, permeates the ashes of the deceased into "memorial objects" including jewellery, coffee mugs and candle holders.

Justin aims to help people continue to share in the experience of life with their loved ones after they have passed away.

As one customer said to Justin: "I can hardly wait to have coffee with my sister every morning. I miss her beyond words." 

To avail of Justin's unique service, all you have to do is choose your memorial object, ship off a specific amount of your loved one's ashes, and allow Chronical Creations to get to work.

The ashes are collected, ground into a fine powder, and added to a glaze mixture including clay and other materials, or mixed in with the clay itself.

While this memorial method is definitely unconventional, it is undoubtedly comforting to those who wish to remember the deceased in the warmth of a cup of tea or a vase of flowers, rather than more traditional methods.




Demi Lovato was in Berlin to do an interview with the radio station NJR.

Things seems to be going well, nothing very out of the ordinary was being said. But then, oh then things took a mighty turn and the internet has subsequently lost their mind.

When Demi was asked 'what her favourite dish was, her answer was either incredibly literal or Demi just realised how to make nonstop press events more fun for herself. 

To be fair, mugs are pretty great. But we feel someone should tell Demi that if you're going to be that wild about mugs, she should know that they're not just for hot liquids. Has no one ever told her about mug cakes?

Someone should tell her about the mug cakes.
