Ashes to Glass are handmade cremation keepsakes by our partners at Memorial Glass. The award winning glass artists at Memorial Glass carefully incorporate your loved one’s ashes into ornamental glass and jewelry settings that are designed to be touched and treasured. Once encased in their very own commemorative ornament, your loved one’s ashes cannot be spilled as they can from an urn and will live on as heirlooms.
How much ash do you need to make a memorial?
Only a very small amount of ash is required; 1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon per piece is more than enough.
What do you do with any left-over ash?
All unused ash is returned to you, along with your completed Memorial Glass order, unless you request it not to be returned.
Will I be able to see the ashes in the glass?
Yes, the white, bubbly streaks that you see in our photographs are actually ashes encased in glass.
Can I send you all the ashes if I am not comfortable removing some of them for you?
Yes, we are happy to do that for you.
Can I have more than one color put in a Memorial Glass piece?
Yes, there are two colour combinations that you can choose from for our Galaxy Domes, Spiral Domes, Bubbles Domes, Life Hearts and Comfort Stones. Jewellery, however, is only available in single colours.
I have my own design, will you make it for me?
We are happy to discuss the possibilities with you.
Is it possible to mix the ashes of more than one animal together?
It is possible to mix the ashes together, we are happy to do this for you.
Can I use fur instead of ashes?
Due to the high temperatures needed to work with glass we cannot use fur. Unfortunately it will just burn away.
What if my glass memorial breaks in transit?
In the unlikely event that your Memorial Glass memento arrives damaged we will replace it free of charge as long as we are notified within 14 days of receipt of delivery. Photographic evidence will be required.
What should I do when my pet passes away?
To prepare your pet for any kind of preservation, we recommend that he or she be placed in a freezer as soon as possible. Before placing your pet in the freezer you will need to wrap him or her up securely to protect against freezer burn. This could be done with plastic bags or a cloth shroud.
How long can my pet stay in the freezer while I make arrangements?
Your pet can be stored safely for many years as long as you have used good quality freezer storage bags.
How long will the process take?
Please allow up to 5 weeks. Memorial Domes, Life Hearts and Comfort Stones take up to 2 weeks to create while Jewellery can take up to 4 weeks to complete.
How do I get my pet to you?
We are happy to work with you to coordinate the delivery of your pet or your pet’s ashes to our Northcote based studio in Melbourne VIC. Alternatively we can discuss shipping options with you based on your location. Services are available to anyone anywhere in Australia and transport options will be discussed at the time of your enquiry.
