The British tradition of memorial art is a long standing one. The stone seems to give a greater credence to the words or phrases that are chosen – the solidity, age and endurance of stone combined with words of great feeling lend itself particularly to the memory of loved ones.
Carefully considered lettering style and shape of the stone enhances the phrase or words selected to honour a person, evokes a memory or simply lightens a corner of a garden with a peaceful or humorous sentiment. The memorials don’t have to be large; it is the thought that goes into it and the process of creating something to honour a person or pet who is no longer with us that is significant.
