How will you want to remember an unforgettable cat companion? A Memorial Votive is a lovely way to keep your departed cat close to your heart.
Working with your supplied photo or artwork, our artist partner, Bernadette Kazmarski*, uses decades of pet portraiture on paper and canvas as well as photoshop skills to prepare your cat's image to fit the votive. She removes background distractions, corrects distortions if needed and adds a color or gentle pattern that suits your pet, pulling ideas from your supplied photo. Bernadette also works with photos of two pets, see the images below.
Bernadette prepares and prints your photo or artwork of your pet onto a frosted vinyl label then burnishes it onto a cube-shaped glass vase 3.25″ in each dimension. The label, which wraps completely around the votive, holds the image with clarity even in ambient light and diffuses the light of the candle. The reverse has your cat’s name and dates, as shown in the photo.
- An LED votive tea light candle comes with each votive that has an inexpensive and easily purchased replaceable battery.
- Each votive is packaged with a small care and use card and a message of sympathy.
- The votive, card and sympathy message (if applicable) are carefully packed and shipped in a Priority Mail box.
- Once we receive your emailed photos, please allow 10-14 days for order fulfillment and delivery, as this is a custom made item.
If your votive is a gift, a complimentary sympathy card with your personal message is included. You may include a message to any recipient. Email the message to us along with your pet’s name, dates (if desired) and photos to email@example.com. Please reference your order number in your email.
Watch the video as Bernadette places a lighted votive candle into Luna’s custom memorial votive. This votive was made for us personally, as a memorial for our beloved little tuxedo cat Luna who passed over the Rainbow Bridge in 2015.
