About SoulBursts Cremation Ash Glass Art

The intention with every SoulBursts Cremation Ash Glass Art piece is to give you joy.

The goal is to help you recall the beauty of the relationship you had with the deceased.

Glass allows fire and light to come together with the cremation ashes. To craft a beautiful Soulbursts glass art object for your loved one’s remains, and we treat their ashes with the deepest care and respect.

Each object is artistically unique — as are the individuals whose remains are held within them.

We understand it may be sad for you when you first hold a SoulBursts creation. You have just lost someone precious and irreplaceable. These glass mementos provide a way to hold your loved one in your hand until they come to reside peacefully in your heart.

Ultimately, the hope is that each SoulBursts keepsake will be a celebration of your loved one. Grief is a developmental phase we prosper from by traversing. The hope is that this work will contribute to that process, allowing you to connect with spirit, essence and the memories you hold.

How Soulbursts was created

Michelle Kaptur founded Soulbursts to honor her mother 


“When my mom died, I made a purple heart with a bit of her ashes as my own personal remembrance. I loved that her ashes were in a creation that was beautiful because I could see her inside the glass. I loved that I could also share her that way with my family.”  - Michelle


That inspiration continues to this day. I am grateful to have been a part of Soulbursts for over a decade working side by side with Michelle and learning what it takes to create these beautiful Cremation Memorials for your loved ones. I am pleased to continue providing this service under those same values. If you would like to see a video of the founder of Soulbursts and myself talking about the process, please watch the video below. 


Thank you, 

Mark Gordon
