These mixed-green keepsakes were made to honor a father's Irish heritage. They were created from the Sun Catcher line. Having no loop, they lie nice and flat on the desk.
When a young woman lost her boyfriend of many years, she asked me to work with her to think outside the box for this custom tribute piece. Right away she mentioned that he loved Pink Floyd and all things psychedelic, bringing me to think of glow-in-the-dark glass that I've worked with in the past. The pendant I came up with appears as normal in daylight, but glows in the dark as seen in the picture on the right.
Fond memories of a blue glass bird at Grandma's house is what prompted a woman to request these figurines. Her Grandmother's ashes are nestled in the bases.

This memorial art piece was created for a man to replicate his twin brother's tattoo.
Dichroic glass is great for creating specific images! The shiny coating is also referred to as "dichro".
Dichro is available in a variety of colors, and comes to me as a solid pane of glass. I can carve specific images from the shiny coating, then work the dichro piece into clear glass. Backing the artwork with a darker color of glass allows the carved image to appear. During the blowing of the glass, ashes can be incorporated between the layers of dichro and the dark glass or they can be encased on the back.
The photos below show the versatility and beauty of this custom option.
There are many more dichro colors shown in the Glass Gallery.
This Ash Art pendant was created for a man to memorialize his infant daughter. It incorporates her ashes and the symbol for "Daughter". The father is an artist himself and he was able to come to my studio to talk me through the unique shape he envisioned.
