The Process


Stone engraving, stone carving, rock etching & rock carving are just some of the terms used to describe the engraved stone process.  This process is very similar to the glass etching process but instead of using a laser to create the mask/stencil, a plotter is used to cut the rubber resist.  The resist-protected rock is then blasted with a very coarse abrasive which removes rock from the unprotected areas.  Air compressor pressure and time are use to control the depth of the engraving.

Pet Memorials

Pets have long been a part of our lives and many are considered to be members of the family.  As such, they are deserving of the same attention both in life and in death.

When experiencing pet loss, many pet owners wish to memorialize them and choosing a unique memorial for a beloved pet is a beautiful way to honour the impression they made in your life.
