A company based in Seattle by the name ‘Artful Ashes,’ is helping people who are suffering from losing their loved ones who passed away by creating unique glass memorials. “These amazing pieces comfort your grieving, allowing you to hold and treasure your memories.” The ashes appear in a coiled pattern entwined with effervescent colors.
Each memorial comes with an inscribed message with their loved one’s name. The innovative artists at Artful Ashes use the skill of glass blowing to create amazing colorful glass orbs in shapes of spheres and hearts which contain just a tablespoon of your loved one’s ashes.
The ashes show up in your personalized glass of your preferred shape as a white foamy layer in the intricately colored glass. If you are not comfortable with removing a tablespoon of the ashes to send off by yourself, the company will offer you assistance with that after you deliver your urn or ash box to their offices. The ashes are then kept in a personal and secure compartment safe, before being created into the visual art.
“Our artists capture the essence of your loved one’s spirit in a swirl of color and ashes, sealed forever within beautiful glass art,” the company wrote. “These amazing pieces comfort your grieving, allowing you to hold and treasure your memories.” They added.The memorials are approximately 3 ½ by 3 ½ inches and 14 ounces of solid glass art. According to someone who purchased one on Reddit, the price range is about $145 each.
