Cremation Marbles on TV!

The KSHB Action News 41 crew did a story on CremationMarbles.com several years back. Here's the video!


The Lawrence Journal World did an article about Vaughn and CremationMarbles.com.

Here is an article from the Hutchinson News, Vaughn's hometown paper.

Cremation Ash Glass Memorials Explained

Glass memorials can be made using cremation ashes, or cremains. The ash turns a wispy white color, and develops tiny entrapped air bubbles when it's encased in glass.

Cremation glass is a timeless, unique way to memorialize a loved one. Vaughn's glass, as seen in the pictures throughout this site, is borosilicate, which will resist scratches, and should never break in normal conditions.

Cremation Artist Vaughn Evans

Vaughn Evans is an American glassblower who specializes in the use of cremation ash in his work. He was born in 1982, and has been working with hot glass since 1999.

In 2009, Vaughn was asked to make keepsake cremation glass marbles for a customer, and everything clicked into place. His selection of glass items has expanded greatly over the years, and he's always working on something new.

Different sizes and designs of cremation marbles

At 16 years old, Vaughn was already experienced with jewelry design. He began lampworking glass (see below) to make his own beads. He started out using "soft" glass. It's easier to work at a low temperature, but much less solid than the borosilicate (or boro) glass that he currently uses. Soon after, he made his first marble and knew that he wanted to work with glass for the rest of his life.


Glass is Vaughn's favorite and most practiced skill, but far from his only medium. He also has experience as a welder, silversmith, blacksmith, jeweler, digital artist, photographer, macrame weaver, scalemail/chainmail armourer, videographer, kaleidoscope maker, equilibristic juggler, 3-d fractal art designer, and he creates videogames and works on his house in his spare time.

"In 2009, after making my first cremation marbles, I did a blog post about them. Soon after, I started getting random emails from across the world, asking if I could make more."

"My work has gone through many changes since that first order. I have added many new objects and designs to my selection of cremation ash glass. Every piece has been unique." -Vaughn Evans

Vaughn was born and raised in Hutchinson, Kansas. He now lives in Linwood, Kansas with his wife, Aly, their daughter, Leilana, and their son, Ethan. His eldest daughter ChloƩ is in college.
