In mid august we received an email from the mother in New Zealand who had lost her 4 year old daughter Kiara to cancer in 2011. She and her husband had been searching since then for the perfect resting place for their daughter. Though they loved the angel vessels they saw on our website, they wanted something that could contain all of their daughter's ashes (about 80 cubic inches) and our vessels were keepsakes holding only about 3 cubic inches.
After over two months of R&D, special custom tooling, and 14 attempts, we just completed and shipped Kiara's purple angel. She stands 17 inches tall and weighs in at 8 1/2 pounds. By far, the most technically challenging piece we have ever created in over 25 years in the art glass business.
