All life is sacred

Greetings,

You don’t have as much time as you think. Time flies, as you can see in this classic hand carved winged hour glass. The back of the monument is the epitaph, “All life is sacred“. This black English slate was carved in our RI studio and now rests in a NH Quaker cemetery.

Please call (401) 934-3105 so we may design your hand carved monument.

May your journey be joyful,

Karin Sprague

Bird Icon Revealed in Stone

Bird Icon Revealed in Stone

One tap at a time and the bird is revealed on the branch. Four photos showing the progression of a hand carved bird in Monson black slate by Javier Alfonzo.

Every stone tells a story.

Cemeteries as Museums

I love to visit the older sections in cemeteries.The designs hand carved into monuments of a century ago inspire my own work. Recently ZI attended the Association of Gravestone Studies (AGS) (put link here please) in Danbury ,CT. Tours included Wooster Cemetery in Danbury, Sleepy Hollow in Terrytown, NY & The Woodlawn Cemetery in the Bronx. Ivy entwined raised letters in marble stopped me dead in my tracks. Detailed texture was woven with geometric patterns and hand carved in granite, banding an entire obelisk base. This month I applaud the stone carvers of yesterday and today who keep the craft alive and well!

With Gratitude,
