Hold a solar system in your hand with this amazing glass solar system scenic by Joe.  We include a small amount of cremation ash from your loved one to make up the solar disc, the planets and occasional comment lie above it.  Planetary colors will vary.


Joe starts with a clear tube of glass, which is melted down over a 2000 degree flame into a semi-molten disk. A small amount of cremation ash as added to the top, then another layer of clear glass.  He then melts different colors into glass balls which are added to the growing scenic to make the planets.  Then a finishing layer of optically clear glass is layered over the blue core to forever protect your loved one's ashes.


  • Approximately 2 3/4" wide by 1 1/2" high.
  • We ask for 1/2 a teaspoon of cremation ash
  • Planet colors will vary
