Techie Tuesday: Lundgren Monuments

Let the sun shine through. Posted by Hello

So what's the latest innovation in tombstones? Well, first they're no longer made of stone. Glass memorials are the next hotness for dearly departed. If you're lucky enough to get a cemetary plot with good light you will be the envy of all your neighbors as the transluscent monument will react to the ever changing lighting conditions.

Check out the description:
Lundgren Monuments are translucent memorials created with kiln formed glass, four inches thick and mounted into a stainless steel or bronze base. The glass is heated to temperatures over 1500 degrees and requires two weeks to properly cool. Each glass memorial contains a unique array of suspended air bubbles and natural textures. Your personal information and artwork is carved into the placid surface.

Lundgren Monuments are designed to be set onto a granite or concrete foundation for permanency, and are created with the intent of lasting thousands of years and requiring little or no maintenance. Each memorial is entirely unique and luminescent in natural light. Radiant and incredibly tactile, Lundgren Monuments are designed for the individual who defies definition, and in the setting of a memorial park or cemetery they are glowing beacons that stand out amongst the traditional stone memorials. Please review our full line of memorials and see for yourself their beauty and timelessness.

There are a number of styles and special designs can be accomodated. But plan ahead as there is a lead time of 12 weeks.

So if you've called part of the 'Culture of Death' you might as well put some refined culture and a dash of panache in that death.
