I've had an idea of something I might want to make and sell in my pottery shop but I'm not sure if it would seem like I'm trying to profiteer on pain.
After losing my girls, I thought about getting a tattoo that symbolized them somehow. Just something to make them permanent. They were too temporary, I wanted their existence to be forever somehow.
Instead of a tattoo, I changed my pottery signature to integrate representations of them. Pottery shards last for thousands of years, my skin will only exist for another 100 or so.
So this is the design of my signature, my original initials with 2 female symbols integrated into them.
I know that I like that it's going out there in the universe and that symbol will exist long after I'm gone.
So I've wondered if other miscarriage mamas might like to have a symbol stone made. Initials, dates, something simple that can be impressed into clay and then fired. Probably not footprints because I can't carve those into clay and they are too detailed. But ya know, something. Stones can be buried, or I can make them something a little more interesting to display on a mantle or something. Possibly even miniature urns for ashes.
So my question is this - if I were to offer something like this for sale in my pottery shop, custom orders of course, is that something that might be wanted or would it seem insensitive, or rude somehow?
