You would be surprised how many people come in here looking for cremains or urns for their eventual demise.
I can't control where a piece ends up. If the piece was meant to be an heirloom, and ends up in a flea market, it is on the relative, not me.
Like I said before, my moral compass remains true. In fact, I think that it is better than most. I am providing a service for someone who wants a lasting memory of a loved one. It is their choice to have one made or not.
....now I'm going to go make lids for all of my pieces and give Wendy a call
The difference between a tattoo And what Glassblowers are doing with ashes is that the person who gets the tattoo is alive and is making the decision to do with their body as they please. I guarantee to you that more than half of the people who are turned into paperweights did not make the request.

I can also guarantee non of them are complaining either.

Sorry Eben I couldn't help myself.
