Although not necessarily commonplace, Mosaics have been used on tombstones for over 1,500 years. Mosaics that are added to memorials are extremely durable to time and the elements and can depict images or lettering.
Irrespective of whether your headstone material is granite, slate or marble, a personally designed mosaic can be added. At Sarsfield Memorials we enjoy a close working relationship with an artist who can produce a design along with your requirements.
The example shown in the photographs on this page is of a mosaic that has been produced for special little boy to demonstrate his status as a shining star.
The glass gold leaf positioning is such that when the sun reflects off it the star shines very brightly. Mosaic memorials can be made to any design you wish for, celebrating the life of your loved one.
If you choose to commission a mosaic memorial you can be assured that you if you wish to be you can be involved in every step of the process, playing a part in the design, cutting and shaping of the glass or ceramic.
Our artist will discuss the life of your loved one, taking inspiration from the places that meant most to them and you. Inscriptions will also be discussed at this stage to ensure that the design develops in the right way and also within your budget. You will also be allowed to take some mosaic pieces away so you will always be close to them. Prior to the inlaying process, you will be shown the completed design in case you wish for any late amendments.
Sarsfield aim to work with customers to meet their exclusive requirements. We believe in giving customers what they want, not what we think they want. We welcome new commissions that allow individual bespoke designs to be produced for headstones, providing a memorial that is symbolic for loved ones. Please contact us if you would like to discuss this further.
