Artists & Craftspeople

There are so many ways in which we can remember our passed pets, much loved and much missed.

I thought it would be nice to have a list of artists and craftspeople, especially local ones, showing the beautiful and well crafted pieces that they can create to help keep our memories alive, and I am really enjoying putting this page together and finding out what's out there. If you have any suggestions please feel free to contact me! I do not act as an agent in any way, you would order directly from the maker.

There are links to each artists website where you can see further examples of their work and also the contact details to talk to them directly and discuss your requirements.

Enjoy browsing through, Rowan.

I thought I'd put a link to the company website here, although again this is not strictly speaking a bespoke artist or crafts person piece. Never the less, very effective.
