HeartstonesTruly Unique Memorials
Each Heartstone is completely unique.They are hand finished and no two are ever the same – just like us.
Heartstone have sourced world class mosaic artists to produce the timeless feature artworks of the headstones. A unique and artistic way to mark the last resting place of your loved one that will remain colourful lasting tributes for generations to come
Our Primary range includes Black Granite and Irish Limestone.
Black Granite is a favourite with those choosing low maintenance. And the solid dark colour – frames the artwork beautifully.
Irish limestone has a unique quality and colour – it is a popular choice for those seeking an Irish option.
The materials for the feature mosaic come from around the world – including the famous Orsoni foundry – Venice, Italy. They include:
Vitreous glass – These are fired glass tiles made to a uniform shape and size.
Venetian Enamels – Tempered coloured glass.
Smalti – This is the classic mosaic material. It is opaque glass fired in large slabs in a kiln and then hand cut with a hammer and hardy chisel into small cubes. Their irregular finish makes them a wonderful reflector of light.
Gold smalti – This tile is made with real gold and silver leaf sandwiched between two layers of glass and fired twice in the kiln to embed in the metal.
Each mosaic is hand made – so no two are exactly the same.
