Talking about death is very tragic and dark, but a Seattle-based company wants to add some beauty to it by implementing a one of a kind, super creative idea. The company is known as “Artful Ashes” and they just developed a unique idea to memorize your loved ones.
They want to represent death through an artistic way by using a tablespoon of your loved ones ashes and swirling them into beautiful glass. The ashes can be inserted into different solid glass shapes, such as a heart or round orb through the technique of glass blowing.
The ashes insert the loved ones spirit, capturing the very essence of their soul forever. Different colors can be added to create a unique art form.
The ultimate idea of “Artful Ashes” was to comfort grieving individuals by creating a beautiful glass form that they can hold on and remember their loved one forever. They’re made by mixing the ashes with forest colors, and shaping them in a curved pattern. The loved ones name can also be carved into the glass, along with a message or anything for memory that the loved ones may ask for.
The dimensions of the glass creations are – 3.5 x 3.5 inches and weighing in at around 14 ounces. One glass creation can cost around $145, which can be ordered on the Artful Ashes website.
