With Hong Kong facing a shortage of burial space, some families are considering more novel ways of remembering those who have passed. As part of our Hong Kong Humans series, Sophie Li speaks to Zimon Chow, who specialises in embedding the ashes of relatives’ loved ones in memorial glasswork and jewellery.

In collaboration with the University of Hong Kong’s Journalism and Media Studies Centre.
