When you close your eyes and picture a gravestone, what do you see? Probably a tall, slim gothic tablet of stone, suitable for Halloween decorations or a Boot Hill gunslinger. Most modern stones have taken on a thicker, more sturdy shape, but the mental image remains that of a cookie-cutter rectangle of stone, carved with names and dates. At Sheboygan Monument & Stone Works, one of our goals is to change that mental image.
Our stones are custom-designed to be as uniquely beautiful as the persons they memorialize. Of course we can offer a wide variety of stone textures and colors, from a rough-cut Sienna Red to a highly polished Blue Pearl with its almost opalescent glow. And our shapes run from the basic rectangles to the highly creative teardrops, hearts, mountain tops and teddy bears. We can add small bronze birds or large weeping angels, carve a simple spray of flowers or a complex organizational seal. Best of all, we work with artists to etch intricate designs or life-like portraits, all under your direction.
When you are designing a monument to a loved one, think beyond the basics. Consider the many things which made that person special and unique. Imagine a memorial which truly reflects the spirit of the deceased. And then, call Sheboygan Monument & Stone Works so we can turn your mental image into reality.
