Traditionally Urns are often chosen as the option for storing ashes, they are often hidden away from view and forgotten. There are in fact many different and unique ways to store the ashes of a loved one, some of which are beautiful and special ways to celebrate and connect with them.
Ogishi Glass Memorials are:
1. Beautiful Glass Object. The combination of ashes and coloured glass in the clear glass creates a unique and stunning glass piece.
2. Unique just like your loved one. Each piece is made individually and is completely unique.
3. Lasts for almost forever. Glass material itself lasts for thousands years. Some designs are solid and will not easily be broken.
4. Keep close and even touch the memorial. You can place it anywhere you like in your house, the bedroom, on your desk in the office, even on the coffee table. It is a beautiful art piece that is a commemoration of your loved one.
5. Reliable. Glass Artist Setsuko Ogishi has more than 30 years experience with glass art and has been running her glass business for almost just as long. She strives to provide a caring and respectful atmosphere and will look after you and your loved ones ashes.
A glass bottle and a glass solid sphere are captured a father's favourite colour with his ashes. So she can feel her father everyday closer to her.
Setsuko attended The Australian Funeral Expo 2017
She introduced Ogishi Glass Memorial to key people of the industry at the Australian Funeral Expo on 9th September. A thin layer of ashes will be captured in glass with favourite colour. Integrating ashes and art glass to create affordable and unique alternatives to traditional service options.
Now Setsuko is back to her studio to work. She will start working on each glass memorial from October till just before Christmas 2017. Now it is the right time to order.

Recently we had the pleasure of creating a set of glass memorials for a client named Fiona. After she received her glass memorial, Fiona left us with a wonderful message:

I received Jedda this week. Thank you. The photo you sent looked awesome but when I received the pieces they were even better. Thank you will never be enough.
I have always loved your work but these hold even more meaning and I will alway treasure them.

We always appreciate the kind words our clients send us, it gives us motivation and positivity.
We have recently started creating urns after several of our Glass memorial clients sharing with us where their loved ones' ashes are kept. Admittedly the urns they have are beautiful, yet our clients come to us in hopes of finding something that is more expressive of their loved ones, something unique that they can look at and feel the spirit of that individual/individuals. Obviously we offer the Glass memorial service, but the service only requires a small amount of ashes, and so the urns provide an alternative for the rest of their loved ones' to reside in. Currently we do not produce the urns with the ashes inside the glass like our other Glass Memorial products, but we are working on ways to make that an option for our clients.

Keep your loved ones close in a beautiful and unique art glass created just for you.
