Testimonial for recently completed Headstone

July 28, 2021 4:31 am

We just wanted to thank you for our mother’s headstone. I haven’t seen it in person yet, but my dad & sister have both expressed how lovely it is. My dad has found dealing with EB Sculpture so easy, & has really appreciated the fact that you dealt directly with the church on his behalf, which eased the whole process.

Many thanks for all your hard work & professionalism, and for creating a beautiful lasting memory to our mother.

He can carve into boulders of stone outside your house or make a pre-drilled plaque that you can hang on your wall. He can carve in any font, with any colour tint. Whether you have a house number or house name, why don’t you treat your home to a new entrance plaque? Contact us for price or for more information!

 

Hand-carved Animal Images

Here are a few examples of animal images, hand-drawn and hand-carved onto memorials and plaques. Elliott was recently commissioned to hand-carve the image of a farmer and his dog onto a headstone. He was also commissioned to include the hand-drawn picture of a beloved Siamese cat onto a headstone.

Animal lovers can request hand-carved, or machine-cut, motifs on their headstones or house name plaques.
