Human Bone China

It doesn’t get more personalized that the products from Villa Delirium Delft Works. Charles Krafft takes crematory ashes and turns them into one-of-a-kind, commemorative pieces of human bone china. This topic comes from the blog of Momus who wrote an article for The New York Times’ The Moment. In that article, The Post-Materialist | Craft Work, is a mini-documentary of Mr. Krafft at work. In the clip he says “The craftmanship isn’t really up to snuff, because I don’t know what I’m doing.”

Momus’ article covers a couple other crafters, including Wim Delvoye, mentioned by David here.
