Weights for Paper made with Glass and Cremation Ashes

George Bernard Shaw once said, "Without art, the crudeness of reality would make the world unbearable." This is definitely true, especially when it comes to a time of mourning, and helps understand how cremation art can greatly help during these most difficult moments of life. Cremation art, while a relatively new concept in the memorial industry, is quickly gaining popularity for the therapeutic effects it offers. One of the more popular pieces are the glass cremation weights. These beautiful orbs create a completely different type of remembrance that, unlike many conventional pieces such as keepsake or token urns, can be handled without fear of displacing the cremation ashes. The reason these offer better protection for cremated remains is that the ashes are actually fused into the glass.

To create a cremation glass weight, an artist takes a small amount of cremated ashes and 'rolls' them onto a spit, which is turned and blown until the artist reaches the desired effect. As the glass melts together, the ashes are permanently encased under the layers and layers of glass. These pieces offer a huge range of color and design options, but the most popular are the orbs that feature the cremated ashes swirling around the selected color, which acts as the center point of the piece. These orbs also have a substantial weight, which causes a pleasing feeling when they are held.

These elegant glass weights can be placed throughout the home, as accents to existing artwork or furniture. Because of the large variety of color options, one can select a color that will blend perfectly into their existing decor, or a vibrant color that will stand out. These orbs are also perfect to place in the office or workplace, as they appear as 'paperweights' and unless disclosed, no one would ever guess that the orb actually contained cremated ashes.

A beautiful work of art can breathe new life into an otherwise mundane environment. This is also true with a work of cremation art. A beautiful glass keepsake will not only bring comfort when held, but also serve as a discreet remembrance of a loved one.
