Forget Coffins! This Company Will Swirl You Into Beautiful Glass Creations When You Die

Seattle- based company Artful Ashes is helping loved ones during the grieving process by creating unique glass memorials for those who have passed away.

Through the use of art glass blowing, Artful Ashes collects one tablespoon of your loved one’s ashes to include them in a glass orb and or heart.


“Our artists capture the essence of your loved one’s spirit in a swirl of color and ashes, sealed forever within beautiful glass art,” they write.

“These amazing pieces comfort your grieving, allowing you to hold and treasure your memories.” The ashes appear in a coiled pattern entwined with effervescent colors. Each memorial comes with an inscribed message with their loved one’s name.




See how it’s made in the video below:



The memorials are approximately 3 ½ by 3 ½ inches and 14 ounces of solid glass art. According to someone who purchased one on Reddit, the price range is about $145 each, but you can check out more information here. You can also keep up-to-date with them on their Facebook page.
