Glover Memorials Art...

Pictures tell a thousand words, and so with memorials, art can often define and personalise the monument. We believe we can offer some of the best artwork available anywhere. Here are some innovative art projects that Glover Memorials has pioneered.

Design Work | Large Portraits | Custom Art | Light Blasting | Custom Stones | Laser Etching | Carved Memorials

...Design Work

We can take a 3D object and turn it into a piece of art that is meaningful to you, here are some examples

Custom made Harley Davidson Motorbike reproduced in Granite

...Larger than life portraits

Larger than life portraits in natural, white, silver or 23ct Gold. These can be made from any photo, in any size and can be the perfect complement to any headstone. This portrait was done onto a full side of a 600X450 granite stone, and sits in the window of the Porirua showroom where it can be seen for hundreds of metres and attracts a lot of attention.

...Custom Art

We can work with you to find and create meaninful designs, symbols, emblems and logos that represent your family. Here is an example of a map of Rarotonga that we recently made for a client.

...Light Blasting

Light blasting allows for any drawing or scene to be reproduced in an abstract way on granite. The effect can be stunning.

This Island scene is in the Porirua Showroom.
