Ashes from pets are transformed into lovely “paws” of glass

Losing a pet costs as much as losing a loved one – or even more, at least for some people! The pain that comes from the loss of a faithful companion who has accompanied us for years and years of our lives is something that only those who go through it know that they never forget. That’s why a lot of people end up keeping something that belonged to their dog – a toy, a leash, or any other object – to keep an eternal memory of all the good times that have passed.

Davenport Memorial Glass is a company from northern Idaho, USA that has decided to make this souvenir even more special by turning the animal’s ashes into absolutely fantastic little glass paws.

With a unique technique, this company creates memorable pieces of our pets that infuse a small amount of ashes of these with impressive works of art in glass.

“Our goal is to physically capture a moment, to create an object that brings back a memory,” Davenport writes on their website. “Nothing will compare to the time spent with your loved ones, but we hope to aid in treasuring them and remembering the precious time you had together.”

Works of art

According to Cameron Davenport, the man behind these true works of art, the idea came after he lost a close friend and decided to turn the small amount of his ashes he had received into marble.

In addition to creating beautiful pieces of glass with the ashes of both pets and loved ones, for Davenport the most important thing is the impact that their creations have on people’s lives.

“One of my favorite parts of my job is the smiles and tears I get from my clients,” he told Bored Panda. “They love the work I do for them and the meaning behind it. With each passing day, I become more and more grateful for the people in my life and the time I spend with them. Doing this kind of work really highlights the love in my life. I look forward to many years of joy and comfort through the memorial glass. “
