Ordering

How to order a glass headstone?

Firstly, have a look through our published selection, get acquainted with the multiplicity of ready-made, bespoke and family memorial designs. Decide which technique – layered or cast glass, you find more appealing. Have a look at the stories behind our ready-made designs, personalize the designs, where possible, by changing the colours of the glass, adding engravement on the side or adding granite sides. Or, you may wish to make the memorial even more personal by creating a custom design. In such case, think about the story or the message you want to convey with this memorial. Form some ideas regarding the shape, size, colour and other specific details that you think would beautifully help in conveying your message.

We assure that each Glasstone glass headstone is hand-made and therefore unique. Even amongst ready-made designs, there are no two identical exemplars. Each will have their specific nuances, made by our craftsmen with hands and tools.

Step by step process of ordering a bespoke headstone.

Firstly, glass artist Ernest Vitin will craft the memorial design based on your story, your aesthetic preferences – ideas about the shape, size and colour, and your budget. Therefore, think about and let us know of:

  • The story or the message you want to communicate through the memorial.
  • Your aesthetic preferences –  ideas about the shape, size and colour
  • Your budget for the whole project and/or the glass memorial
  • Any special requirements the cemetery has so that we can take these into account and develop the design accordingly
  • Prepare 2 – 4 photographs of the commemoration site and, if possible, let us know how the sun shines on the place.

Within approximately ten days of confirming all the necessary details with you, the artist shall prepare a 3D visualisation of the proposed design(s) based on your wishes and requirements. You may then choose one of the designs or request desired amendments. Once the design is confirmed, we shall start working on its development – turning it into a personal commemorative monument for your beloved one or your family.

We shall keep you informed of the progress and send pictures for confirmation of the stacked glass memorial before the final gluing stage.

The average waiting time for a ready-made design is three weeks and for a custom design six weeks. The waiting time may be significantly longer in peak season.
