With a few exceptions, the whole rainbow of colours is available. We can match a birthstone or a favorite colour. Ashes in clear glass have a serene beauty in their simplicity.
EACH PIECE IS MADE ONE BY ONE BY HAND. AS SUCH, EACH PIECE WILL BE UNIQUE, SIZES LISTED ARE APPROXIMATE AND MAY VARY WITHIN AN ORDER.

HOW TO ORDER:
There are three ways to place your order.
1) You may email us your order and we will email you an invoice which you can pay securely online with your credit card or you may request a different method of payment.
2) You may drop your ashes off to us and place your order in person. We are open daily 11am to 4pm. As Fireweed is a working glassblowing studio and the glass blower is often the only person working, in order for us to provide you with the best experience we do ask that you make an appointment to drop off and pick up your order. This will allow us to plan to give you the attention you deserve.

We are keeping a close eye on the Postal strike situation, and Canada Post has stopped guaranteeing delivery times due to the significant backlog caused by the strike, in particular at their sorting centres. While we continue to use Canada Post with tracking, insurance and signature as our carrier, we may delay shipping completed orders, especially to the West Coast and Ontario—Eastward until we hear the backlog is clearing up. If you would like a quote for UPS please contact us. When mailing us your ashes please make sure you get a tracking number.
If you are mailing in your ashes, please place a minimum of one tsp per piece ordered in a ziplock bag and mail it in a tear-resistant envelope to Fireweed Glass Studio, address below. We strongly advise using a pre-paid Expresspost envelope as it is a good envelope, includes a tracking number and is kept separate from the regular mail stream. Please include in the envelope your order, name and contact information, and a copy of the cremation certificate if available. View prices
Work on your order will commence once both full payment and the ashes have been received. Please allow 8 weeks for order completion. Once we have started working on your order we are unable to provide a refund if you choose to cancel. If we are mailing you your order, you will receive confirmation by email with a tracking number.
