Memorial Glass

Memorial glass is glass art peices with inclusions of ashes of a beloved pet, or loved one. Here at Glassasoares we create glass art with the ashes of your loved one, special pet, or animal friend that is no longer present in this world. Glass peices of color for display that invoke fond memories; rather than an urn or box that may be put away out of sight. Glass can be functional in some way, and/or decorative in nature. Paperweights are popular as memorial peices, and are relatively lower in cost. You choose. We hope you enjoy the images that follow, and they inspire you to choose this method to honor the memory of a loved one or friend; whatever species they may have been.
