Foreverence says they capture the unique traits of the individual by creating one-of-a-kind, 3D printed urn which can celebrate their unique legacy.

Among their recent commissions was an urn made for Devo co-founder Bob Casale who died back in February. The shape chosem was that of the Energy Dome, Devo's famous pyramidal hat worn during their performances.

"I can't thank you enough for bringing a little positive into these dark days for us," Casale's family told Foreverence.

Other examples included on their website are urns in the shape of ballet shoes, a car and some items of clothing.

The custom urns are made of a ceramic-composite material and can cost thousands of dollars.
