Unique headstone from glass and granite | “Jazz”

“Jazz” is a unique headstone made from a combination of vertically layered glass and granite. The headstone is characterised by its distinctive lightness and gaiety. The fine vertically stacked glass creates an especially luminescent and vivacious interplay with light. The headstone depicts smooth and rhythmical elements that compose a mellow and affectionately airy mood, telling about the attitude towards life that the person, to whom this memorial is dedicated, had.

When reminiscing about the time spent with their father, the minds of the two sisters – Rita and Inga Ruduša, are instantly filled with sounds of jazz and blues music. When thinking about the design of a gravestone that would be dedicated to their father, Andrejs Rudušs, sisters unanimously agreed that it should reflect his vivid personality. Sisters distinguish their father as a very creative, scintillating and joyful person, who not only lived gaily but inspired others around to celebrate life!

While exploring the possibilities of creating a memorial site that would always remind them of their father’s vibrant personality, the sisters realised that no stone could ever narrate the story of their father’s life well enough. Glass sculptor Ernest Vitin created a mesmerising headstone which accurately depicts the story of Andrej’s vivid and scintillating personality, combining glass and granite. May everyone live with the spark and jazz as Andrejs did!

Over the years we have made several variations of Jazz design. Changes in the undulation of the wave, the overall size of the combination and the shapes of granite elements make each Jazz an original piece of commemorative art sculpture. Moreover, we offer Jazz as a single-piece preassembled monument set into a stainless steel frame (light or dark). Therefore the installation of it is very easy and takes only about 20 minutes on the ground. If you wish to order Jazz, get in touch with us with your preferred size – standard or custom, and we shall get back to you with a proposal of your own unique Jazz.
