The Making of Dante's Urn

The Making of Dante's Urn

Hello everyone,

Shortly after Dante passed, his mother contacted me asking if it was possible for a handpan-shaped urn be made in his honor. I humbly accepted and was able to document its creation.

I waited until my friend Colin Foulke, who was also contacted by Mrs. Bucci, could be here so we could make it together.

I wanted to tune a note into it so I asked the guys what note it should be. Unanimously, it was D for Dante.

We shared this privately at Handpangea Farmington in 2015 and in light of his very recent birthday felt it fitting to now make it public.

Urn makers and contributors:

Kyle Cox
Colin Foulke
Jim Dusin
Jason Ragsdale
Jonathan Heaven
Spyros Panagiotopoulos
Lino Schraudolph

Dante touched many lives and shall not be forgotten. Rest in peace, my friend.

Sincerely,
Kyle Cox
