Granite & Marble Cemetery Grave Vases for Gravestones
When we think of a headstone, we often conjure up images of a spooky, solitary stone that is inscribed with R.I.P. or a similar sentiment, maybe with a full moon and even some bats flying around it. While this statement may seem comical, it is not far off from the traditional appearance of most memorials. Upright headstones often feature a simple, or elaborate if the family wishes, die, mounted on a plain base. Often families who opt for these types of memorials are not offered one of the most noted memorial pieces, which is a flower vase. They are then faced with a dilemma, being that they wish to leave flowers at the grave site of their loved one, but the memorial created does not allow them to properly display the bouquet. It may even seem that the memorial is so well put together, that it can be quite tricky to add any permanent accent without throwing off the entire aesthetic appeal of the piece. For those individuals and families, and really anyone else interested in adding a vase to their memorial, the cemetery vases section was created.
This wonderful collection of beautiful vases offers families a way to find a vase that will match, or maybe even emphasize virtually any existing memorial. These vases are made of a large variety of different types of granite stone, which helps offer a wide selection of color choices. These pieces are of a traditional design that is intended to be displayed upright, at all times. Granite is a very durable igneous stone that is naturally created deep within the surface of the Earth. It is excavated from quarries in large blocks, which, for this purpose, are cut down to an appropriate, workable size. Once the stone is cut into a smaller block and cored, a skilled artisan then places the block on a lathe, which spins it at a great speed. As the stone turns, the artisan begins to carve into the piece, shaping it into a gorgeous vase to elegantly hold the floral arrangements of choice. The vast selection of vases not only offers a variety of colors to select from, but also size and shape options, to help ensure the piece elegantly compliments the existing memorial. These vases are certainly ideal for families looking to add an elegant final touch to the final remembrance of their loved ones, or even for those needing to replace an existing vase. That is not to say, however, that they are only for memorial use. These flower vases also make wonderful accents to home gardens, and even offer a small collection of whimsical designs, such as a cowboy boot or heart. Whatever the purpose, the addition of one of these wonderful pieces will surely help create a peaceful and inviting atmosphere.
Flower vases have long been since utilized to hold and display floral arrangements throughout the ages. This practice is certainly not lost in our modern times. While the techniques and methods to create the vases has evolved, the end result is still a classic and elegant piece that will not only accent the setting it is placed in, but also the flowers that are placed within.
