Terms & Conditions

Memorial Products

All our glassware and jewellery is made by hand in our studios in Bath.  Some jewellery items are made in collaboration with local Jewellers in Bath utilising their expertise.  When purchasing, customers must understand that due to the nature of the craft involved, variations will occur in size, shape, colour and pattern.  Images and sizes provided are for guidance only but will be adhered to as closely as possible.

Further information about the range and their creation, please see our FAQ.

If you have questions please do not hesitate to contact us directly on 01225 319606 or email sales@bathaquaglass.com

We only use a small amount of cremation ashes (less than 1 level teaspoon per piece) therefore we can create mixed / matched sets for the whole family to cherish. We will always return any of the ashes not included in the process.

We advise our customers that when making the memorial product there are particular technical issues that need to be understood. The process of creating our handmade glass products includes adding colour to the molten glass and at a particular point, we will incorporate the cremated ashes to the gather of glass which is at a temperature of 1100 degrees Celsius.  It will then be put into a kiln to cool down gradually. 

With the inclusion of the ashes it is never 100% certain that this cooling down will be successful, and in some cases, a crack in the glass may appear (this can often happen with glass products with various layers of colour within).  Therefore we advise that you do not send us all or the last of the cremated ashes, in case we need to make a new piece for you.

All Memorial Glass pieces can be engraved using our in-house engraving service

We accept family, friend and pet ashes and, unless otherwise directed, will return any unused ash to you, within the UK only (due to UK customs regulations).
