Francesca has told us about his father, a dynamic and active man with a parachutist history who never gots tired of looking at the sky and enjoy the freedom and nature. We have created for him a transparent freehand blown glass urn. The stopper that seals the urn is natural cork where we have joined a glass disk with name and dates of the deceased, handpainted with black grisaille. The cork and the boardname have been hiden under a holster in glazed white ceramic. From the stopper hangs a blue glass bead with a silver heart that reflect light from the inside of the bead. In this design the ashes are deposited at the bottom of the urn creating a landscape that represents the earth. The stopper becomes a decorative element in the form of a parachute that carries the pearl, symbol of the journey of the soul.
