Forget Coffins — Your Loved One’s Ashes Can Now Be Swirled Into Beautiful Art Creations

Though few of us like to discuss death, it is an inevitability that will one day claim us all. For this reason, there should be no shame in contemplating various methods of burial. In fact, you may even find yourself delighted by some of the newer post-death options. Not only can your loved one’s ashes be turned into a tree, but a Seattle-based company now specializes in swirling the ashes into beautiful glass art.

As My Modern Met reports, Artful Ashes is helping its customers through the grieving process by creating unique memorials for the departed.

“Our artists capture the essence of your loved ones spirit in a swirl of color and ashes, sealed forever within beautiful glass art. These amazing pieces comfort your grieving, allowing you to hold and treasure your memories.”

Artful Ashes uses one tablespoon of a loved one’s ashes and swirls them into a glass orb, heart or angle wings, typically with vibrant colors and metallic touches. Customers can also have a message or their loved one’s name inscribed on it. Throughout the entire process, the company takes special care in separating, storing, and labelling the ashes.

One Reddit user says each piece costs $145. However, you can request more information on the Artful Ashes website.

The hearts are approximately 3 1/2 by 3 1/2 inches and weigh 14 ounces and the orbs are about 3 inches across and 14 ounces. Finally, the Angel Wings are about 1 1/4 inches across and 1 ounce. All designs are made from solid glass.

I’m sorry it has been so long for us to be able to post a picture of this beautiful work. Caitlin passed in July 2017. We have gone through holidays always hoping she would still walk through the door with her laugh. It’s been a hard and still is. So thankful that Artful Ashes has let us keep her close to our hearts. Thank you 💕💕💕💕 Salina Artful Ashes… Your loved ones ashes memorialized within glass art… Greg, Christina, and the Artful Ashes Team 206-409-0337 #artfulashes #memorial #love #family #loss #remembrance #healing #angel #grief #bereavement #ashes #cremains #gonebutneverforgotten #cremation #urn #glass #glassart #madebyhand #spirit #celebrationoflife #ashestoart #funeral #madewithlove #swirl

While you’re here…
…We have a tiny favor to ask of you. Government think tanks have teamed up with social media companies and Google to censor independent media websites and government criticism. Despite this big tech crackdown on the free press, we have been very fortunate, and tens of thousands of people continue to read The Mind Unleashed every single day. But we need your ongoing support to keep working as we do.. And because we value open and accessible information for all, we would never hide our content behind a paywall. Unlike Fox News or CNN, our editorial independence means we set our own agenda and voice our own opinions. We are not subject to the whims of billionaire shareholders. We are editorially independent, and that makes websites like this an important part in the war for truth and justice. Hopefully we’re wrong, but without your help, we're afraid big tech companies may soon make The Mind Unleashed algorithmically disappear from the Internet. We need your support to keep delivering quality independent news. Every contribution, big or small, will go directly into funding independent journalism. Thank you. Click here to support us
