Shine On Brightly Memorials
Memorial Mosaic Headstone Designs are beautiful and enduring pictures built of stone, custom created to celebrate and honor the life of your loved one. These stone mosaics typically serve in place of a traditional grave marker, often covering the whole burial site. Memorial Mosaic Headstone Designs offer you an amazing opportunity to tell a story about your loved one, the life story, passions, and legacy. The image created, the colors chosen, the types of stones, can all connect to that life and your lasting memories.
There’s no end to possible sources of inspiration for your beloved’s memorial. Designs can be very abstract, like shapes that suggest the mountains, the sea, or a quilt pattern. Designs can also be more representational, like human or animal figures or a precise rendering of a city skyline. Ideas can come from anywhere: your beloved’s favorite place, a piece of artwork he/she made, his/her profession or hobbies and might even include his/her image. Inscriptions may be placed on a separate panel within the piece or integrated into the design. Inscriptions can include any desired text, such as dates, prayers, or quotes.
Stone is the primary material that is used in Memorial Mosaic Headstone Designs. This can include a combination of stone with natural finishes- the rough textures of quarried or field stone, the smooth shapes of beach pebbles or river rock- as well as the honed and polished finishes of slab stones, like the granites and marbles used for countertops. Stone scraps from local countertop companies can also be integrated into the design, which is a popular way to recycle a ‘waste’ material. By juxtaposing different colors and textures, images and moods tell the story of a life.
The selected materials also help to connect and deepen the story. The design may include stones from a part of the world that was important to the person, or perhaps even actual stones collected during travels. Other durable materials, like cast or slab glass, weatherproof tiles, or metal, may find their way into certain designs.
