Why cremation memorials? — When we recognized the artistic process that allows us to preserve cremation ashes within glass we knew that it would resonate with many who were seeking a way in which to create a lasting and beautiful memorial with their loved one's ashes. We knew that we could offer a way in which to have a very personal, and tangible reminder—a way of holding the essence of a family member close—whether beloved human or cherished pet—always near to our heart.
Our studio is located on the beautiful coast of Maine. It has been designed to work with the cremains in a way of utmost care, and respect... that which honors the spirit of your loved one's memory. Our work and storage areas have been designed to provide a clean and safe space to guarantee that cremains cannot be mixed up, and are kept separated throughout all stages of creation.
We are a husband and wife who have been working in glass and metals since the mid 70's. About 12 years ago we had a customer come into the Studio and ask us if we could incorporate some the cremains of her grandmother into a bead for a memorial necklace. We felt very honored in this request, the experience of the creation of this memorial was one of the most amazing experiences we have ever had... and still continues to be. We would be honored to work with your precious ashes in the creation of a lasting Memorial piece. We have lost a number of pets and family over the years, the memorials we created for them give us great pleasure as well as bringing back memories of the good times we shared together.
