Artist-painted Coffins

We offer artist Painted Coffins created by Peta Morris (founder of Creative Death Care).

An online consultation takes place where you discuss your ideas. Peta then creates rough sketches and a time, day and place is organised for the painting of the coffin. Prices begin at $1000 dependent upon the complexity, amount of materials and time taken to create the artwork. This price however, does not include the coffin, please organise a cardboard or plywood coffin through your funeral director. These are the best material to paint over.

Please contact us for more details and to place an order.
