These are something that I love to make, choosing to only make one at a time to give each set of remains the respect and honour they deserve.
How I Make the Memorial Glass
I place the ashes into a metal tray, then gathering the molten glass, then first adding any colours you have chosen, when I have melted these to the surface of the glass, I reheat the glass then pick up a small amount of ashes, (about half a teaspoon full) for a paperweight, but need a bit more to make sure I have enough, returning any left over with your order. I then mix the ashes and colour together in my Glory hole at about 1180c in to random swirls and patterns, leaving a beautiful 3D patterns that you can see into. Then I cool the first part down to about 650c and gather molten 1120c glass over the top incasing the ashes inside. I then hand-shape and make this into your chosen piece.
Things that can be made containing ashes
Many things can contain the ashes in glass, a paperweight, candle holder, heart paperweight, small Vortex vase or table lamp or even a heart shaped sculpture.
I will make some animals with ashes in, but only ones that Im confident I can do in 1 attempt, please email me if you would like one of our animals with ashes in. email@example.com
I ensure you, your chosen piece will be made with the upmost respect and passion as I have a serious love for glassmaking and making people happy using the skills I have been lucky enough to learn and share.
How long does it take to receive an order?
Within a few days of receiving the ashes I will make your piece and then send it out after two days, when the glass has cooled and been finished and polished by hand.
