About

Swan Song Memorials.... how the love story began.

The concept of our Swan Song Memorials crematory glass company began in reaction to the loss of our cherished llama, Chatsworth. He had been with us for over 20 years, and we lost him unexpectedly to an aggressive type of bone cancer in his jaw.

We had both lost too many precious people and animals in the past, and know it is a devastating event. Many of our beloveds had been cremated, and their cremains are kept in various types of containers. My husband, John's, late wife Jo was a very close friend of mine. We have her cremains on display in a beautiful clock.

Chatsworth, our llama, was also cremated, but he was a big llama, and his cremains filled two very large vessels. The time had come to consider doing something more. Our thoughts turned to special ways to remember all the people and animals we had seen go over the "Rainbow Bridge".

I am a professional fused glass artist, and I thought it would be fitting to try and incorporate the cremains with my glass work. I had seen it done before in hot glass studios, where they blow glass vessels to contain the ashes. I had not seen it done in fused glass.

My research led me to understand the chemistry differences between the inclusion of ashes in blown vs. kiln worked glass. The main differences is the temperature that the glass is heated to. We much investigation and testing trials, Swan Glass Memorials was born.

Since then, I have worked hard to develop unique designs that will appropriately honor the amazing lives that have been ended too soon. I have developed techniques to include not only cremains, but hair, flower petals, and even soil into the memorial glass sculptures.

We are offering some of the most popular items in our etsy shop. Our website http://www.swansongmemorials.com offers even more selections, including memorials using human cremains. Please consider allowing us to help you find that special way to honor your lost love forever.
