When you place the order, I will send you an address to send your ashes to. I only incorporate a small amount due to the delicacy of adding the acidic ashes to the glass. Upon completion of your custom memorial piece, I will ship back your remaining ashes along with the glass work. Length of time to finish a piece depends on the number of other orders and availability of glass in stock at the time of your order.
Cremains in glass may have a sand-like appearance and can be anywhere between gray and tan.
Different colors choices are available on most art glass pieces. You may request a different color when you order\, however, custom colors may take longer if I have to order glass.
HANDKERCHIEF DISHES OR TEA LIGHT CANDLE HOLDERS
Elegant glass bowls are handmade from a cut 7" square of clear Bullseye glass.
Crushed glass (fit) and cut glass pieces are added to the cut square.
When adding cremains, additional steps are necessary.
Ashes are sprinkled on the base glass and a second layer of clear glass is added on top. The glass is then fused together in a kiln.
The final process for the glass with or without the cremains. is as follows.
Glass is then draped over a mold to form the shape which resembles a handkerchief. Bowl measures approximately 4" high and 3 3/4" wide.
Ashes look almost like sand and give it a marbleized look.
Finished piece can be used as a decorative piece, candy dish, ring dish, trinket dish or even a votive holder.
