When a pet dies, the owner usually has two options on what to do with its remains. Either you have it buried or you cremate it and keep the ashes, usually to be stored in an urn or jar.
The second option is preferred by those who want to keep a physical part of their pet with them to cherish. But a company came up with something better – they can turn your pet’s ashes into beautiful glass art in the shape of paws.
Davenport Memorial Glass does this by infusing a small quantity of your departed pet’s ashes into stunning glass figures.
Unsurprisingly, paw-shaped glass art has become popular among dog and pet lovers and owners.
Each piece is small enough to fit into your pocket or purse, so you can always take a piece of your pet with you on the go if you wish.
The founder, Cameron Davenport, has been involved in the art of glass blowing since 2003. He made his first memorial art piece in 2015 and he used human ashes. It came from the remains of his good friend Johnny and he infused the ash into a marble.
He told Modern Met that he was tired of creating the same things as everyone else. So he thought of something more meaningful with his friend’s ashes.
Davenport eventually made pet ashes his specialty, particularly memorial pet paws. A teaspoon of ash is mixed with the other materials in blowing glass.
The ashes is worked into the glass “like flour in a dough,” as he describes.
The mixture is turned into swirling marble and then welded into the paw shapes. Davenport admits that this is a tedious process but he finds his efforts definitely worth it.
“Our goal is to physically capture a moment, to create a keepsake that brings back a memory. Nothing will compare to the time spent with your loved one, but we hope to aid in treasuring them and remembering the precious time you had together,” says Davenport.
His company still works with human ashes and uses it to create other glass shapes.
