Memorial Paperweights

Memorial Paperweights

Our Memorial Glass Paperweights encapsulate the cremation ashes of a beloved one or pet to create a timeless memorial which you can cherish forever.

Below is some general information. Please keep in mind – this is YOUR memorial piece, so we can customise it to suit you…ie colour, size & style. Photos below are just a sample of some of the memorial glassware we have made to date.

We require approx. 1 tablespoon of ashes per piece. This can be safely shipped to us in a zip-lock bag, if you are happy to do so. Please label the bag. If ashes are coming from overseas, please include a copy of the death notice.

Photos of some our customers pieces can be viewed on our Facebook page ‘Hokitika Glass Studio’, in the Memorial Paperweights photo album.
