Memory Glass has recently discovered that all of our pieces can be made with soil, dirt, or sand from any location to create an Orb, Pendant, or any other available keepsake.
Examples include a pinch of soil from a loved one's burial plot, some sand from a favorite beach, or some dirt from a secret location that only you and your loved one knew about.
Typically, the soil or dirt will look white in the piece due to the extreme heat that burns off any organic materials during the glass blowing process. The outcome of sand will depend on the sand itself. Pure white sand will not be as visible as black sand for example, but either way, you will see it in the piece.
All our Orbs are available in two sizes.
Small is approx. 2-3 inches in diameter and 1-2 pounds.
Large is approx. 4-5 inches in diameter and 3-4 pounds.
A wrap is the delicate addition of glass wrapped around the base of the Orb, and is permanently fused to the glass.
Wraps are available in either coil or wave designs, and in any of our 16 color options.
This design addition adds $25 to your order.
Our Mahogany stands are a striking way to display your Orb by lighting it up from below using long-lasting LED lights.
The Large Honduras Mahogany stand is 5x5x2 inches and adds $120 to your order.
The Small Spanish Mahogany stand is 3.5x3.5x1 inches and adds $80 to your order.
Each stand comes with an custom engraved plaque to commemorate your loved one.
Commemorate your loved one's Mahogany Stand with a message on a plaque.
A Large Stand Plaque has 3 lines of text and fits up to 25 characters per line.
A Small Stand Plaque has 2 lines of text and fits up to 25 characters per line.
Thank You Nick, Loren, and Fernando
After losing my home and all of my belongings in the Sylmar fire, I thought that things couldn't get any worse. I was wrong. I lost my beautiful eight year old cat, Carmel. He was so loved and so special that I wanted a keepsake that was equally as lovely and unique as he was. My search for that treasure led me to you.
I want to thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for the beautiful, one-of-a-kind globe and pendant. When the globe is lit, it literally sparkles and the lighted pattern reflected onto the ceiling is a clown's face. Carmel was a lovable clown, so it's as if he is looking down at us and smiling. Every time I glance up, I blink back the tears and smile back at him.
Many thanks to you, Nick, for your kindness, patience, and for the gentle, reassuring way that you dealt with me. You and Fernando, too, are a credit to your profession; but more importantly, you two have compassionate hearts & souls. “A thing of beauty is a joy forever”. My globe and pendant will be a joy forever!
With Gratitude, Hugs, and Love,

The memory glass that displays our dog 'Ellee's ashes" is beautiful. We turn in on at night and it glows with her ashes. Thank you for the lasting memory we will have of our beloved dog forever. You guys did a great job!

Your Memory Glasses have been a blessing to so many! A friend of mine passed from Cervical Cancer 1 May 2008 and we purchased 5 pendants (3 one for each of her childen and one for her two sisters-all of which have been worn since receiving them) and now my father's health is declining so my stepmother and I will be getting pendants and orbs to carry him with us! Thanks so much for your dedication and committment to our loved ones!
i wanted to write and say thank you very much. i only got three days with my son, but now i can have him with me always. he will be the night light for his future siblings. my memory glass is very special we notice that there is a letter b inside and my sons last name starts with a b. the light that shines on the ceiling when it is on reminds me of the past present and future symbol. it has helped a lot since we got it. please don't ever stop what you guys are doing it is great. thank you once again. p.s i already have people set on wanting to get more stuff through you guys.

Dear Nick and the Memory Glass crew,
After losing my Husband John to suicide on October 2008, I had very mixed emotions on how to memorialize him. Your company was suggested to my by my uncle who runs a memorial park in Grants Pass, Oregon, and it was, at first glance, the perfect solution. Your artistry and compassion shows in your work and I'm able to look at the memory glass sculpture with much more than sadness- I find joy in its beauty as work of art.I placed it next to our wedding picture- the beginning and the end... I chose the galaxy design as I know that John's soul is out there somewhere with our Creator and that brings me peace. I also commissioned a sculpture for his parents with the embrace motif and they are so moved by it. You are providing a service that is much needed and I was glad to be able to give you another outlet to "get your name out there" with our local mortuary. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. God bless your future business and thanks again for your sensitivity,
I wanted to thank you both from the bottom of my heart!! My brother and I got a Memory Globe with the cremain's of our mother in them. They are very beautiful!! It will be a special gift to pass down to my children/her grandchildren whom miss their grandmother very much! I am very happy that we decided to get these. The work, time and effort you guys put into these makes it even that much better!! It is a beautiful way to keep the cremain's of a loved one close to you!!
Thank you again!!
Many thanks for creating this unique keepsake.
My cat, Sasha, was my world. There are no words to describe what she meant to me. My loss, after 15 1/2 years, was unspeakable. I was so reluctant to release any of her ashes to you -- and yet what I got in return for taking that risk is a true testament to the beauty and love she brought to my life. It is truly more beautiful than I could have ever imagined.
Thank you again for everything.
I received my finished piece in the mail today and I wanted to write to express my thanks.
The piece is everything your website promised it to be. With the addition of the lighted stand, it is an incredible tribute! What a unique way to honor a pet that shared 20 years of my life.
Thank you and your staff for allowing me such a wonderful way to remember my furry friend.
Loren & Crew,
I wanted to thank you for doing such an awesome job with Eric’s Memory Glass™. He would be so stoked on it!
I am so thankful to have something so beautiful to remember him by and honor him with.
You should be so proud of the wonderful work that you do.
Just a quick note to let you know the Memory Glass™ of my father, Rick Elder arrived safely. The work you do is so lovely. My mother and I appreciate having something of beauty that reflects the lovely man that was my father.
For that I bless you and your colleagues.
This is an extraordinary way to use your collective talent to create things of breathtaking beauty and help others in a way even good friends cannot. I know there will be a special place in Heaven for all of you.
Thank you so much. I wish you all the greatest success. Bless you again for your compassion and commitment to sharing your wonderful talent with the rest of the world in this truly visionary manner.
