Glass headstones

glass headstones Glass headstones can be used two different types of headstone. Firstly, glass headstones can refer to headstones that are entirely constructed from reinforced glass. Secondly, glass headstones can refer to headstones which for the main part are constructed from some other material such as stone but contain a glass section somewhere in their construction. Either type of headstone offers a modern appearance within the headstone which pays tribute to the memory of deceased loved one. Both designs are stylish and contemporary and offer a striking alternative to traditional designs which tend to be a little gloomy and unoriginal.

Glass monuments

Glass headstones offer a monument that is truly unique and different to the vast majority of headstones which will be found within a graveyard of cemetery. They offer a contemporary design that is both stylish and elegant while at the same time striking and impressive. Glass headstones provide a welcome respite in any cemetery from the lines and lines of traditional granite headstones which promote a very old fashioned and gloomy image. Such headstones can provide a bit of character and originality to a vista which is otherwise very uniformed and ordered.

Glass sections

The alternative use of glass other for the entire structure is to create a glass panel which fits into the overall headstone design. Due to the properties of glass it is very easy to inscribe and create intricate designs upon. Therefore, attractive designs can be created upon the glass headstone section which can be much more intricate than would otherwise be inscribed on the stone body. This type of headstone offers a balance between the traditional and the modern, the solemn and the celebratory. With the use of glass headstones truly unique but dignified and respectful memorials can be created to much loved family members.

The glass used within glass headstones tends to be reinforced and of very high strength to be able to withstand both the tests of time and the harsh weather conditions that are often expected. The idea of a memorial is that it will last for generations to come so glass that would shatter in freezing conditions would not be of much use. Glass headstones are highly durable despite common misconceptions and will provide a lasting tribute for many years to come. Besides their durability, glass headstones are also very easy to clean and to maintain which means they will retain their striking original finish for many years.

When considering a headstone for a recently departed family member it is important to consider all of the options and decided which type of headstone would be particularly appropriate for the individual. Different types of headstone portray a different image whether due to their size and shape or the material from which they are constructed. Glass headstones portray a modern contemporary image which is relatively cheerful when compared with traditional granite headstones and headstones constructed from various other materials. Glass headstones offer a truly unique memorial which will stand out in any cemetery.
