Hot glass is truly a unique material. Pair with cremated ash, we are able to create unique artworks as a tribute to our loved ones.
When the glass is molten, cremains can be layered into the material and will show up as a white silvery colour along with bubbles. With a few exceptions, the whole rainbow of colours is available and we can match birthstone or favorite colours and work them into specific designs. 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.
