Can I come to the studio when you make my item?
We love having visitors to our studio. When it is safe to do so you are more than welcome to come and watch us create, or even take part in the creation of the ashwork item. Taking part in the process can be a powerful act of healing and celebration, many people find it to be a healing pilgrimage.
Why are your prices lower than many other ashwork glass makers?
Our prices are not a reflection of quality or care. We keep our prices low because of our commitment to making ashwork accessible for all those who would like to honor their loved ones in this way.
How do you ensure glass ashwork doesn’t break during shipping?
Artisan handmade glass is so much stronger than you might realize and we pack our parcels so that they could drop one meter without anything breaking.
Can broken glass ashwork be repaired?
Yes. Contact us for more information. It becomes a slightly different entity but within that there is beauty because it mirrors the fracture in life.
