Glass artist Henry Duquette specializes in optically clear glass cremation keepsakes in the form of pendants, beads, paperweights, and sculptures. Forever in Glass will memorialize your loved ones and/or pets by interweaving different colors of glass with a small amount of cremains/ash into a very artistic piece of glass keepsake jewelry or sculpture. We will personalize each piece by signing or engraving your loved one's name on each piece so they will be Forever in Glass. This type ofglass cremation keepsakewill be past down through generations to come.
Henry has studied with the Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, NY; Diablo Glass and Metal School, Boston, MA; Worcester Center of Crafts, Worcester, MA; and private lessons with glass masters Robert Mickelsen, Christopher Rice, Jackie Rice, Brent Graber, Tim Walsh, and small class lessons with Jeremy Sinkus, John Kobuki, Jenn Goodale, Beth Mellor, and Margret Neher.
Pendants have swirls of colors embedded with cremains, gold, silver, brass, and other metals in an optical clear glass pendant. Each piece is signed on the back of the keepsake in 22k gold, so as to be Forever in Glass. Pendants are also available in heart shape.
