Many of our glass styles are available in various sizes which can hold small to large amounts of ash from adults, infants, or pets. Ashes are usually contained within a bag inside the vessel, however the urn should be stored in a secure place due to it's delicate nature.
Glass Blowing: An Ancient Art
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,art, and urns for cremated ashes are still produced using these ancient techniques. The English modified the properties of glass with lead and this style was considered the finest glass of the 18th century.
