The Eternal Orb

  • The Eternal Orb is handcrafted from optically pure Pyrex glass.  Ashes are fist suspended within layers of glass, then spun into a unique spiral pattern, and finally backed with a color of your choice.

  • • The Orb is roughly 2 ½" in diameter (about the size of a billiard ball) 

    • A free Collection Kit is provided with every order for the safe & secure delivery of ashes to Grateful Glass

    • Each Orb includes elegant presentation packaging as well as a personalized Certificate of Authenticity. A lucite stand is included at no additional charge and an LED light stand is available for purchase

    • Because of the handcrafted nature of our products, some variation in color and design/dispersion of ashes should be expected. Likewise, each set of ashes reacts uniquely when encased in hot glass. As a result, certain sets of ashes may be less visible or show up as a slightly different color compared to our sample images. 

  • Shipping is a 3 step process. 1) After placing your order, a collection kit will be mailed to you. 2) You will then return the collection kit complete with your loved one’s ashes to the Grateful Glass studio. 3) Finally, we handcraft your keepsake to order and ship it to you along with any unused ashes.

    Shipping of the collection kit as well as your finished keepsake are included for FREE with every order. The return shipment of the collection kit is not included with your order. We have found for the most secure return possible, the kit must be brought in person to your local Post Office for processing.

A long time coming

I first saw Matt’s website at least a dozen years ago and probably more. I have family members all over the country and as people got older I saw how much it bothered them not to be able to travel and visit their loved ones. It was then that I decided I would be cremated and I want some of my remains to be combined in to an orb. I told my son, I then want him to put two google eyes on the orb and I’m to be kept near his computer or TV so we can continue to enjoy things together. At first he thought this was creepy, but now he appreciates it. Well, fast forward to January 2024 and my dad passed away at 89. He also desired to be cremated so I took some of his ashes and sent them to Matt. What I got back is so beautiful and gives me such comfort when I look at it or hold it. I keep it on my computer desk so it is always near me. I like knowing where my dad is, he is right next to me. Matt was wonderful at walking me through the process and keeping me informed. I couldn’t be happier with him or the product.

Orbs and Pendants

I am so pleased with all of the items we purchased after losing our baby girl Tally. What a beautiful and thoughtful way to feel closer to her and to see the creations Matt had crafted. Can’t thank you enough, Matt, for the important and beautiful creations you make.

So Appreciative of Grateful Glass

I didn't know what I wanted for my 28 year old son, but was drawn to glass pieces, because I wanted to be able to "see him". I ordered the Forever Pendant because it is intended to be with me the rest of my life. I also got the Eternal Orb to put on his urn. The pieces are beautiful. The pendant is discreet, nobody would know unless you told them. They give me comfort and wearing the pendant helps me a lot. Matt is so thoughtful and respectful. I am so happy I chose Matt and recommended his work to all.

A Beautiful Memorial!

Matthew did a beautiful job on the glass memorial piece I selected! His communication was clear, considerate and timely. I would, and probably will, order from him again.
Thanks!!

Perpetual Pendant in Pure White

I lost my dad just before Christmas. I miss him tremendously, but this beautiful piece brings me comfort. Matt was trustworthy, compassionate, and punctual. He provided an easy-to-use collection kit with clear instructions, and he let me know what to expect. When I received my pendant, I cried. It means a lot to me to be able to literally have my dad close to my heart and to still include him in my life in this way. I’m looking forward to being able to take my dad with me to some of the places he had wanted to see before he died. Reaching up to hold onto this pendant when I’m missing him is a reassuring and grounding sensory experience, too. I ordered the Perpetual Pendant in Pure White. It’s very pretty, and I appreciate that this piece is subtle and something I can easily wear on a regular basis. The similarity in color between my dad’s ashes and the white background allows for maintaining privacy and enables me to be intentional with disclosing the significance of this piece. Delivery was timely, and I felt like my dad’s ashes were treated with respect throughout the process. Thank you, Matt.

For Matt and the Thoughtful People at Grateful Glass

My name is Bridget Bogdanich, who along with my husband, John, began our journey to search for the perfect memorial keepsake to bring honor and some closure at the loss of our son two years ago. When I discovered the ethereal beauty of the Grateful Glass products, I knew we had found our answer. The pendants are impeccable and so thoughtfully designed. We chose one for each of our family members, in a lovely light blue that brought reminiscence of our son’s beautiful eyes and gave the comfort of being close with him again.
Matt was informative, sensitive and always available to help meet our needs. He is a true artist and a special human being. We are grateful for him and his team, and as we had hoped, we’re afforded with some peace and closure at this sad time. Thank you, Matt and your team.

Beautiful keepsake

I love my necklace to honor my brother! Matt did such an amazing job and was so caring. I really appreciate his attention and craftsmanship.

My Daddy and Mama

There are no words to express the care, quality and detail that goes into every step of the process with Grateful Glass. Matt is kind, respectful and communicative, and goes far beyond what you'd consider from a business owner. I purchased a pendant for myself after Daddy died 5 years ago, and I just purchased one with my dad's ashes to give to my Mama for her birthday. It is currently breaking my heart that mama is in the hospital with sepsis, and may not recover. I won't ever be able to give her the wonderful gift Matt made just for her.

Kudos to this company. Don't even shop around. They are the best of the best.
