As part of our glassblowing process, the ashes of
your loved one or pet are permanently fused into
a richly colored Memorial Globe.
What is cremation glass?
These Memorials are hand-blown globes made with cremation ash. We fuse the ash permanently onto the surface and finish it with a glass seal, engraved with the name of your loved one or pet.
How big are they?
The Globes are 4" to 5" in diameter. They weigh a little over one pound, and they are extremely durable. Each comes with a clear acrylic display stand.
How do I place an order?
Go to our "Shop" page, select a Memorial, and follow the instructions. We mail out a collection kit for sending us the ashes and contact you when we receive them. We'll keep you updated throughout the process.

Creating Your Special Memorial
The process begins with a gather of molten glass onto the tip of a blowpipe from a 2200 degree furnace.
We add color in various ways to the glass by rolling it in frit, shards, or powders.
Applying The Cremation Ash
We apply the ash to the molten glass using a unique process called Scavo Infusion™, then reheat it until it's fused into the surface.
Blowing Out The Sphere
After the ash has been applied and set, we blow it into a perfect sphere without using tools. That's the tricky part, and it's our specialty.
Sealing The Opening
When we knock off the hollow sphere there is an opening in the bottom where it was attached to the blowpipe. We close it with a final gather of molten glass and flatten it into a seal.
How To Order...............................
We'll treat your ashes with respect and create your Memorial as if it were our own. We understand the importance of being entrusted to memorialize your loved one and guarantee that their ashes will be handled with reverence. We're a small family business and assure you that they will be well taken care of.
