Following the 2018 debut of their newest permanent exhibit, The History of Cremation, the National Museum of Funeral History further explores ways to memorialize loved ones with Icons In Ash, an exhibition of contemporary fine artist Heide Hatry’s memorial portraits crafted from the cremated remains of the deceased subjects.
In looking for ways to cope with the loss of her father and a dear friend, Hatry devised a heartfelt form of commemoration by using a labor-intensive mosaic technique to embed individual ash particles into a surface of beeswax, forming a rich, textured likeness of her loved ones.
