It is always an incredibly sad time when someone close to you passes away.
A Seattle-based company, called Artful Ashes, is helping to make that grieving process a little lighter, and a little more colourful, by creating unique glass memorials for your loved ones who have left this world.
The innovative artists of Artful Ashes use the skill of glass blowing to create beautifully colourful glass orbs or hearts which contain just one tablespoon of your loved one’s ashes, which shows up in your personalised glass as a white foamy layer in the intricately made coloured glass.
Each piece is treated with the upmost respect from the very beginning of the process until the very end. If you are not comfortable with removing a tablespoon of the ashes to send off, you can take your urn or box into the offices and they will assist you.
Ashes are then kept in a secure safe, in their own personalised compartment, before being created into visual art.
The company have said: “Our artists capture the essence of your loved one’s spirit in a swirl of colour and ashes, sealed forever within beautiful glass art”.
“These amazing pieces comfort your grieving, allowing you to hold and treasure your memories.”
The ashes will appear in a coiled pattern entwined with a range of bright colours, with a personalised inscribed message with your loved one’s name, on the back or bottom of each piece.
The price range for the unique keepsakes is about $145, but you can find out more information here.
