London, June 23 : John Lowndes came up with a unique idea to share a cup of tea with his dead father - he turned his dad's ashes into a teapot.
Ian Lowndes died 10 years ago aged 75, and since then his son had been missing their much-loved discussion over a cup of tea.
Thus, 54-year-old John actually mixed his father's ashes with clay to make a teapot.
"Those cups of tea with dad were special and when he died I really missed them," The Mirror quoted John as saying.
The resident of Broad Haven, Pembs, contacted local potter Neil Richardson to make two teapots, if in case one breaks.
"Dad would understand. The only thing more appropriate would have been a pint glass," said John.
