Memorial FLOATS

The Memorial Float is a blown glass sphere of any diameter between 4" and 8".  As with any Float, it will have an opening left from where it breaks off the blow pipe.  Whereas other Floats have this opening sealed with molten glass, the Memorial Float remains open to be ground smooth after cooling.  A separate glass disk is made to be epoxied onto the Float later to seal the Float.  This allows you to add the ashes to the Memorial Float at any time, and to do it yourself.  The directions for sealing the Memorial Float are here.

Bob started making Memorial Floats in about 2010.  He initially focused on using the Orb to “hold” ashes, since solid glass is so sturdy.  But the requests kept coming for something that would hold more ash, but be a little less traditional than the standard Urn.  Bob adapted the standard Floats for this purpose by making them with a lot more glass, making them thicker and stronger. 

If you're interested in ordering a Memorial Float, you can do it right through our website.  Just choose the color combination, the pattern you’d like those colors to be in, and the size you want (the capacity of each size is shown).  We will contact you with any questions we have.
