We would love to help you remember your Loved One. Our hope is that these beautiful glass items can provide a lasting memory that brings you continued peace and comfort.
What we need to create your Memorial Glass-
We recognize that gathering ash remains may be very difficult for some. We suggest you ask a good friend, funeral home or crematorium for help. If you are in the Tacoma area, we would be honored to help.
Each glass piece requires one level teaspoon of ashes. This can be mailed to our shop or dropped off in our gallery. Please enclose the ashes in a sealed, double-bag with your name on it.
Our Promise to you-
Upon arrival, a unique number is assigned to identify and ensure safe return of your loved one’s ashes throughout the storage, creation and shipment of your Glass. The bottom of your glass piece will also have a letter initial on the bottom of the glass, this is generally the first letter of your Loved One’s name. We promise to treat your loved one's ash with love & respect.
How it’s Made-
Starting with a small gather of clear molten glass, the ashes are added with your desired colored glass frit. Our skilled glassblowers then manipulated the color to create the pattern. The glass, ash and color(s) are then encased inside the glass. The ashes create a variety of white flecks, sometimes dark spots and random bubbles that make it/them truly one-of-a-kind. After the final shape is formed, we add the letter stamp. The glass piece is placed in a temperature-controlled kiln to slowly cool.
After the glass has cooled, we will add (engrave) your loved one’s name to the bottom of the heart. Orders are packaged with the utmost care and include tracking information. Any unused ashes will be returned with your finished work of art.
If desired, we can combine cremains from both pets and people into a single piece.
What we do with the Remaining Cremains –
You have an option to either request shipping of the remaining cremains for an additional $25 charge, or we can make you a small clear remnant glass item for no charge. This item will be clear in color and will include your loved one’s ash giving it darker spots of color and bubbles. During the glassblowing process, we will stamp your loved one’s first name initial into the bottom as identification.
You can select your choice in the drop down titled * Remaining Cremains beneath the * Color Options.
Order times may vary.
Please be patient as our small local business creates your memorial art. Once we have received them it will take 1-3 weeks to complete your order and have it/them ready to ship or picked up.

Please remember all items are handmade and individually unique. While each item will be similar to photos, each will be unique in shape, color and size. Due to the handmade process, there will be differences in how each piece will look compared to others, even in the same order.
