Contemporary fine artist Heide Hatry creates memorial portraits using cremated remains. She invented a labor-intensive mosaic technique in which she placed the individual ash particles into a surface of beeswax through several applications until a likeness has been achieved. Her discovery revealed the possibility of a life-altering silent communion that Hatry knew she wanted to share with others who were suffering their own loss.
