Our regular products are made in a production setting.  Oftentimes our artists will spend one or two days focusing on a particular object until our inventory is restocked.  Repetition of one object allows the artists to get into a flow, making objects much faster to produce.  This fast paced environment also allows for imperfections in a small percentage of all their pieces, giving us what glassblowers call ‘seconds’.  Memorials are a much more delicate process, and they are made in a much different environment.  We only have two artists that are experienced enough to make Memorials, and they make them respectfully in a private setting one at a time.  Infusing the ashes into the piece doesn’t allow for mistakes or imperfections, so it’s imperative that they take their time and focus completely on the task at hand.
