Cremation Urns - Glass
Memorials for People & Pets
Our collection of urns of human ashes (and pet urns) is a lovely way to memorialize your loved ones in the funeral home, at home, or in the mausoleums. As long lasting as brass urns and marble urns, glass urns have the added benefit of being incredibly colorful cremations with each one handmade just for you. And being glass, each one is unique in color pattern, unlike other types of urns which are factory made.
We are happy to be offering a wide selection of patterns and colors for the cremated ashes of your loved ones. The full-sized versions are meant for the majority of your loved ones ashes, but we do have companion urns along with keepsake urns for the ashes of pets and for when the unfortunate happens and an urn for a child is needed.
While meant to hold all cremation ashes from people or pets, we do always suggest removing a couple of teaspoons of ashes to use in cremation jewelry or if you want to scatter a small amount of ashes at different locations.
These lovely cremations are made by Eli, master glass blower. To create, he heats up clear glass to over 2000 degrees in a gas powered kiln. Using a long pole (punty) he grabs a gather of liquid glass and rolls it in colored frit (glass fragments) and then puts back in the kiln. Heating evenly by rolling on water cooled rollers, he then adds another layer of color to add dimensionality. With an assistant, he then blows gently into the other end of the punty to open up the semi-molten glass mass into a vessel.
He alternates between blowing and reheating until it is the proper size. Then, using wooden and graphite instruments, he will shape the urn to its final dimensions and size. It is put into an annealed, also 2000 degrees, to cool over 24 hours. The lid is made in a somewhat similar way, though paddles and tongs are used to shape and fit the lids to the urns.
After 48 hours, they are pulled from the annealed (now room temperature), packed carefully in bubble wrap and packing materials, and shipped to your door for the addition of cremated ashes.
For small and full sized versions, automatic 10% off applied at checkout. Free shipping is available for these urns within the continental United States.
