Remembering and celebrating loved ones lives with a beautiful and unique creation
A fitting way to remember a very special person.
“The Harmony Glass Experience” is a spiritual and enriching way to celebrate and remember the life of a deceased loved one. Working with our expert glassblowers, we create beautiful and unique pieces of glass art, to commemorate that special person, incorporating their ashes with your chosen colours, blending together, which bear significance to their memory.
Enriching the celebration of life ceremony
“The Harmony Glass Experience” can form an actual part of a funeral ceremony, or memorial service, by creating a spiritual connection between your loved ones in memory of the deceased. If there are several members of a family all wishing to choose a different shape of glass, all housing the same beloved one’s ashes, then we would be happy to arrange this for you, either using the same blend of colours for everyone, or each individual choosing their own combination of colours. Please contact me for advice if needed.
You can incorporate up to six different colours, so any number of people can be chosen to select a colour which is significant to their memories of that person. You will be able to enrich the occasion with extra special and personal memories which will be written into your ceremony. Usually held at the time of Reflection, the pivotal moment is when each person comes forward to pour their own selected colour of glass crystals into a glass vessel, representing their own personal memory of their loved one.
After the ceremony, the combined crystals are sent to Harmony Glass HQ. If you wish for any ashes of the deceased to be included alongside the crystals, then both can be sent together. Only a small amount of ashes is needed (a teaspoon for each piece) and when completed the ashes are seen prominently visible, naturally twisting around the colours and bubbles in the glass.
Using ashes to create a timeless treasure of your loved one
If you have already had your ceremony, or you would prefer this to be a more private celebration, you can select the colours and shape for your glassware. Our glassblower will create this exquisite piece of art for you to remember your loved one.
Each of the colours has its own symbolism, along with the significance that memories can attach to colours. As these intertwine within the glass, it creates a beautiful talking point and is a very special memento to a life that has passed.
Perhaps your loved one was a keen walker, or they enjoyed the great outdoors? Were they an avid football fan, or did they have a passion for their vintage motorcar?
The colours you choose will enable you to capture these memories and all the ways this person was unique. It also allows family members and friends to contribute their ideas and memories, creating a really positive talking point and focus at such a difficult time.
