Losing someone you love is hard. You are not alone.
We know that you are not reading this with joy. Although there is no cure for grief, we hope we can provide you with a source of comfort.
My husband and I have created glass sculptures for over a decade. We are professionally trained and hold Bachelors of Fine Arts degrees in the art of glassblowing. We are professional artists; we create our own work, teach and demonstrate. A few years ago, a client reached out and asked if we could make her a sculpture infused with her father's and brother's ashes. We were hesitant to be trusted with such a task, but decided to try. She was so moved by the sculpture that we created for her that the project ended up being the single most memorable sculpture that we have completed.
Following that, some of our friends and family members asked us to create memorial pieces for them with cremation ashes of cherished pets and loved ones. The process is bittersweet, as we feel the grief of our clients but see how art can make a difference.
We created this business to extend this service to others beyond our family and friends. We see how it helps to have a physical object to serve as a special token, a reminder, and a visual presence of those lost.
Ashes, when infused into molten glass, result in a beautiful glowing streak. You may find comfort in holding a piece of art, or incorporating a memorial object into your own unique ritual, such as lighting a luminary on a holiday or special occasion.
We understand that this process may seem strange! We appreciate that you are considering trusting us with it. Please contact us if you have any questions.
with sympathy and gratitude,
