Fragile but the Most Beautiful of them all are Artistic Glass Cremation Urns
Glass has long been used throughout history to make different items that are both functional as well as non-functional. This multi-purpose material can be utilized to create anything from the windows in your home to an elegant sculpture to be displayed in a gallery, and practically anything in between. Glass is quite remarkable as it appears as a solid, but in fact is classified as a liquid, as it has no set crystalline structure. This is a result of the material hardening so quickly that the molecules do not have a chance to create any certain pattern or structure. While it may seem that it is only recent that this material was used to create cremation urns, it has actually been used for this purpose, among others of course, since roughly the first century. Indeed, glass has long been used to create vessels specifically to hold cremation ashes, and interestingly, this seemingly fragile material has produced pieces that have survived the centuries intact.
Glass cremation urns today are available in a variety of shapes and colors. Glass produces pieces that range from assembled funerary boxes, to classically shaped vases, and even stained glass pieces which are assembled from small, mosaic-like pieces. Regardless of the style, these urns all create beautiful remembrances that are appropriate for practically any taste or need. Elegant, obsidian glass vessels will create dignified tributes to those who were the epitome of classic style, where as colorful blown glass pieces will almost perfectly personify those who had very bubbly personalities. This material offers, perhaps, the largest variety of colors available in cremation urns, and many of the pieces are actually hand-crafted by artists who specialize in the art of blowing glass. These hand-made urns are particularly interesting because the artist has no true control over the way the color arranges itself. The result is a one of a kind work of art which will create a tribute that is as unique as the personality of the lost loved one.
Glass cremation urns offer exquisite, timeless beauty which will capture the finer moments shared in life. One can even get lost in the swirling colors or stark design of these pieces, which are nothing short of works of art. Almost anyone can be memorialized for all eternity with an elegant piece from this remarkable collection.

"This was a sudden shocking death of my brother...I live in Oregon, he was in Ariz. When his son picked up his ashes he
saw similar small urns, which neither of us were familiar with. He asked if I wanted one, as he was getting one and
was spreading the rest of the ashes at sentimental sites throughout the country. I found your site on line, had never had to deal with "ashes" before and frankly found the idea of a large urn on a mantle unsettling. Keepsake urns were the answer. As my nephew said "once I spread the ashes there will be nothing of my Dad left". That convinced me I too needed a keepsake urn, found your website, and actually ended up paying $27 for the same urn my nephew bought at the mortuary for well over $100. I had the urn shipped to his address in Las Vegas, he transferred some ashes in my new urn and shipped it on to me. I only received it yesterday and was astonished at just how beautiful, simply yet classic the urn is. Far from being "creepy", I immediately cherish this keepsake of my last close family member. Thank you so much for your elegant product, the quick and excellent service and having the ability to buy it on line from Oregon then send it to Vegas then finally have it arrive at my home in Oregon helped tremendously in this agonizing situation.
I will treasure this beautiful urn always, and thank you again for everything. Deborah Kimberlin"
