Mountain Blown Glass offers a unique unity ceremony! During the unity ceremony the wife and husband mix two different color sands into one jar to represent their relationship as two different people becoming one! Once the sands are mixed they are virtually unable to ever be separated again. Here at Mountain Blown Glass we offer a similar style instead of mixing the colored sand together you mix colored chips of glass called frit together. Then you will mail the chips back to us to make you a custom piece of glass with the mixed glass frit. We encourage all to look under our sample gallery, the bowls and/or the ornaments section to get a understanding for what individual colors we have available.
How the process works:
You can either call us @970-577-0880 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org to start the process. Next you choose the colors you would like to mix together. We suggest looking at the individual colored Candy Dishes under the Sample Gallery Bowls page to help narrow down your choice. Note not all of our colors are posted and when selecting colors we suggest you do not choose white or black as a ceremony color. We can add either of those colors to the piece when we are making it but do to them being a smaller size frit they do not mix during the ceremony well with other colors. We also suggest against using Gold Aventurine in the ceremony. The way we apply colors is by layering them. We do not mix the Gold Aventurine with any other color. So the Gold Aventurine is applied on its own layer by itself. Once you have made your selection we can then email you pictures of your color combination to verify that is what you want! Next we charge a $63.00 fee that covers the cost of the frit as well as shipping it to you. If you would like to use the Aventurine in the ceremony then there is an extra fee of $20.00. If choose different colors but still want to add Aventurine after the ceremony to the items we make for you, then there is only a $5.00 up-charge per piece. After the wedding you will mail the color chips back to us @ Mountain Blown Glass 665 Halbach Lane Estes Park, CO 80517. We will then make your piece and e-mail you pictures of the item that has been custom made with your color! Once the piece is made we can do a transaction over the phone to finalize your purchase. The amount due at that point depends on the piece or pieces we have made for you. After the transaction has been finalized we will ship your piece and the frit that is left over to you!
We can make the following items from your color chips: Vases, Bowls, Candy Dish, Oil Lamp, Hummingbird Feeder, Wall Hanging (or large center piece), Ornaments or Sun Catchers, Roundels, Wall Flower Vases, Pendant Lamp Shade.
In advance we would like to Thank-You for allowing us to be a part of your wedding!
