Crystal Imprints are hand, foot and paw impressions cast in glass. They are made exclusively by Connell and Hart, Paul Connell and Diane Hart, glassmakers with 25 years experience of glass casting and were created 10 years ago when we made a plaque as a present for our niece.

Crystal Imprints capture an amazing amount of detail in the glass and are available in 15 colours and clear. They are available in any combination of hands, feet and paws and are suitable for babies, children and adults of any age.There is no shrinkage in the casting and firing process they are an exact record of your child's hands and feet or pet's paws on the day the impression is taken unlike many similar products. All plaques are supplied with a display stand but can also be supplied with wall mounted fittings.

You will find no other baby or pet impression product to rival Crystal Imprints they are of an exceptional quality and totally unique.

how to get a crystal imprint or pawprint plaque made

Crystal Imprints can are only available from Connell and Hart as we like to maintain our exceptional high quality of craftsmanship we do not franchise our products.

To have a crystal imprint plaque made you first need to buy an easy to use initial impression kit.

Full details about initial impression kits can be found on our new website they can be purchased in our online shop or by phone (01434 634898) or you can have an impression taken by visiting our shop in Corbridge, in Northumberland (Gresham House, 19 Watling Street, NE45 5AH) if you're in the area.

It is perfectly safe and easy to make the initial impression all you have to do is help your child or pet press their hand, foot or paw into a slab of soft natural clay. 
Initial impression kits include full instructions and enough clay to make several impressions to create 
your required crystal imprint plaque. Unlike other home kits it can be re used until you get an impression you are happy with. You then return your impressions to us in the same box and using a specially formulated mould making material we make a mould from this which we then cast glass into to create your Crystal Imprint.
