Cremation Glass Keepsakes and Urns
Glass Memorial Tributes come in recycled and non-recycled glass. The non-recycled tributes can be made from a variety of jewel tone colors:
Recycled glass counterparts are all made in emerald green from 100% post consumer recycled glass from beer and wine bottles. Both product lines are equally beautiful and are a great way to memorialize a loved one.
How Memorial Keepsakes Are Made
All memorial keepsakes are hand blown and sculpted in the U.S. by artists and hand signed. Molten glass is at temperatures over 2000 degrees which is a higher temperature then most cremation. When the glass is molten ashes are incorporated carefully into the glass just like we would with glass color. Since glass is at a higher temperature than the ashes, the carbon is burned off and the ashes turn a brilliant white color in the glass.
After your hand blown sculpture is made it is put into an annealer where it will slowly cool back to room temperature over a twelve to forty eight hour period depending on the size of your memorial tribute.
