We made these pieces without publicly discussing it for years, for friends and family only at first but the requests kept coming and the word was spreading like wildfire so we decided to make it official. We are creating custom glass artworks using the cremation ashes of your loved ones, both 2 and 4 legged. These sweet keepsakes are just the thing in these turbulent times. Captured forever, these timeless artworks will bring you endless joy and comfort.
How is this possible you might ask? Since glass is the most amazingly complex, yet surprisingly simple material known to man it should come as no surprise that our bones are comprised of much the same chemical makeup as the glass we use. Ever heard of Bioglass? If not, prepare to have your mind blown. There are some really good articles here and here. It’s been in use since 1967 although not widely in the US. But before we get lost down the glass rabbit hole, back to the topic at hand.
Cremation ashes are comprised of powdered bones. Using just a pinch of ash we can roll them into the hot glass creating a celestial looking streak of a white trail with shimmering bubbles. The effect is powerful and soulful, almost as if the spirit of the person is shining out at us. Or the pet. As dedicated animal lovers we wanted to offer this special service to our furry friends as well. Isn’t a sleeping kitty or colorful dog bone just the thing to remind us of how much joy our pets bring us?
We are offering Memorial Glass in a variety of shapes and colors: Round Paperweights, Marbles, Heart Paperweights, Dog Bones & Sleeping Kitties. Our Sleeping Kitty memorials are extra special. You will send us a picture of your cat and we will replicate the colors and patterns to create a customized sleeping kitty memorial designed after your favorite feline.
Handmade in our Pontiac, MI studio with love and respect, each piece can be engraved with name, dates or other short sentiments.
