Seattle-based company Artful Ashes helps its customers through the grieving process by creating unique memorials for those who have passed away. “Our artists capture the essence of your loved ones spirit in a swirl of color and ashes, sealed forever within beautiful glass art,” the business writes. “These amazing pieces comfort your grieving, allowing you to hold and treasure your memories.”
Using the art of glass blowing, Artful Ashes takes one tablespoon of a departed loved one’s ashes and incorporates them into a glass orb or heart. The ashes appear in a swirled pattern alongside vibrant colors and metallic touches. One can also request to have the memorial inscribed with a message or their loved one’s name. Most importantly, Artful Ashes takes great care to keep these remains separated, labelled, and safe throughout the entire process.
