|These beautiful memorial urns are available in vivid colors of cobalt blue and shades purple with designs incorporating flowers, birds, and angels. Many of the glass styles are available in various sizes ranging from adult to baby or pet. Ashes are usually contained within a bag inside the vessel, however the urn should be stored in a secure place due to the delicate nature.
Evidence of glass blowing dates back to before Christ to the Middle East. Hot glass probably started as a glaze for pottery. Limestone, sand, potash, and soda ash is combined and heated in a super hot furnace at over 2000°F to a molten state, then the art of glass blowing begins. Blown glass vases and art objects are still produced using the ancient techniques.
The English modified the properties of glass with lead and this style was considered the finest glass of the 18th century. Crystal remains as the glass of choice for artistic funerary urns. Decorative facets cut into the glass are highly polished to reflect the light and create an urn that is a stunning work of art. Iridescent and rich luminous shades in every color imaginable make crystal and glass cremation urns a good choice for families that want a timeless piece of artwork to honor their loved one.
