Cameron Davenport, the owner of the company, has been in the glass making industry since 2003. He later discovered the art of designing aesthetic glass works when he took a class from artist Phil Siegel. Since then, he started focusing on creating works of art instead of mere functional glass. How did he come up with the idea of creating memorial glass? It all started ten years ago when he received a small portion of his friend’s ashes. He has been keeping the ashes in an urn and placed it on his bookshelf for years.
“One day it came to me, and I decided to make him into a marble. There were quite a few friends that thought this was a neat idea and asked me to make them some memorial glass as well.”, he said.
Today, Davenport Memorial Glass has been gaining a lot of clients who wish to keep the memories of their loved ones alive. Even other glass artists are in awe of Davenport’s creations and kept on asking how he did it. But Davenport chose to keep his special technique a secret. Despite of that, he still considers teaching the technique to fellow artists someday.
Aside from the pet paw memorial glass, Davenport has created other several memorial pieces for bereaved customers. Davenport takes pleasure in fulfilling his clients’ wish. But he claims that the hardest part of his job is to hear sad stories from his mourning customers.
“It absolutely eats me up inside. I get a ton of sad emails and often need to take breaks from reading,” he said.
