You Can Memorialize Your Pet By Having Their Ashes Turned Into A Beautiful Glass Paw
The death of a loved one is always hard to deal with. It does not matter if it is a human or an animal that we are close to, it can be very difficult.
Although they are gone, it can sometimes be comforting to have a physical reminder to keep close. That is why Cameron Davenport of Davenport Memorial Glass does what he does.
Cameron creates Memorial glass art infused with the ashes of our loved ones.
Davenport has been glass blowing since 2003, but made his first memorial piece in 2015 when he decided to try and infuse his good friend Johnny’s ashes into a marble. “I was tired of making the same things as everyone else and wanted to offer something more meaningful,” he tells My Modern Met. “It’s still one of my favorite pieces of glass I’ve ever made.”
Although he began working with human ashes, Davenport is now particularly popular for his memorial pet paws.
The keepsakes include a teaspoon of ashes that the customer provides and then they are worked into the glass ‘like flour in dough’. He then turns the material into a swirling marble and eventually makes it into a paw shape. While his process is tedious, the results are definitely worth it. Each colorful glass paw is a beautiful reminder of your cat or dog that you can bring with you wherever you go.
“Our goal is to physically capture a moment, to create a keepsake that brings back a memory,” says Davenport. “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.”
