The Unity Ceremony symbolizes intertwining two unique individuals into a partnership, blending lives into a joined union. There are several options to use in a Unity Ceremony, but one unique way is through the medium of glass. During the wedding ceremony, you combine different colored glass crystals. After the service, an experienced glassmaker will create art that you help design that symbolizes your union and lasts a lifetime. With this art piece, you will remember your ceremony, be able to share your story, and visualize your marriage.
The Unity Glass process is simple.
Choose your Colors & Pick them up.
Select your glass crystal colors (glass frit) in our studio. Come to the studio, pick them out, and take them with you if you are local. If you live elsewhere, you can select the colors online, and we will ship them in individual packets for use in your ceremony. The current price for the glass crystals is $12/ounce (price varies as our cost varies). (We will only make forms with verified COE 96 glass, so please don’t buy elsewhere without confirmation. ) If shipping is required, costs are additional.
Select the form to make with your Unity crystals
- Choices include a wavy bowl or vase or any of the form options we offer in our experiences.
- Determine whether you want to assist in the making of the piece or want us to make it for you (same price)
After the wedding
1. Reserve your appointment if you want to assist in making the form or observe its making.
2. Return the glass crystals to the studio at the time of your reservation.
3. Experience the magic of glass together as you make or watch the creation of your Unity piece.
Also, unique to your unity ceremony concept, consider having your wedding party celebrate with us. We can do a narrated glass blowing demo, and then for smaller groups, we can help each of the attendees “Make a Something.” Are you considering gifts for your parents or the wedding party? Unique glass art and giftware are for sale in our studio showroom & galleries. We also offer glass blowing experiences that range in price from $60-$525/person, and of course, we also provide glass blowing classes and weekend workshops. We can also incorporate some of your glass crystals from your wedding into small glass momentos for your notable participants. These are truly unique and thoughtful gifts that will form lifetime memories.
