Mountbatten is taking its Death Chat out to visit a glassmaker in Sandown who creates jewellery and other memorials, which incorporate the ashes of a loved one.

Since 2006, Ed Evans of Eternity Glass Memorials, which is based at Glory Art Glass has been making the unique pieces at his studio at 22 Melville Street.

Visitors to Mountbatten’s next Death Chat, between 18:00 and 19:30 on Monday 2nd September 2019, will be invited to the studio to learn more about the creative process.
