Celebrate a Lifetime of Memories with a Beautiful, Timeless Glass Orb
The vibrant colors of the glass orb reflect the joy and beauty that your loved one brought to your life, while the delicate butterfly, made from their cremation ash, represents the freedom and peace that they have found. As you gaze into the orb, you'll feel a sense of comfort and peace, knowing that your loved one is always with you.
Jake will be taking a sabbatical Winter, 2023 so we've put his work 'Out of Stock' Leave your email to be notified once the Snowfall line is available for sale again.
How We Make It
Jake starts by bringing several dozen pounds of optically clear glass up to 1800 degrees Fahrenheit in a glass furnace, melting the glass into a liquid. He then takes a long pole (punty) and removes a dollop of white hot molten glass. The dollop is then rolled over colored frit glass; the colored glass. The molten ball of glass is then twisted to create the colored pattern of the snowfall orb.
Once the color is fully melted in, the colored ball is dipped back into the furnace to add a gather of clear glass. Using a template, the shape of a butterfly is then created using the cremation ash you provide!
Once the cremation ash is bonded to the molten glass, a final gather of clear glass coats the outside of the orb, fully protecting the ashes for all time. The now formed orb is broken off the punty and cooled overnight in an annealer.
Once cooled, Jake cold polishes the end of the orb that was attached to the punty to remove any rough parts, and your new Spirit Piece is shipped right to you door to be enjoyed by you and your family in the years to come!
You can find stands and bases for this item here. Please note exact hue and placement of color may differ piece to piece, especially with the reds.
The butterfly is oriented on top of the flat spot, so if you set this with the flat spot on the bottom you will view the butterfly from overhead. Main listing picture shows butterfly toward lens with orb on side.
