Memoriable Sculptures or Monuments
 
More often people search for the last resting place of their precious a memorial in the atmosphere and appearance of a personal memory. Do you want to commemorate your beloved one in a unique way? Then you can ask me for some information (without any engagement). Perhaps I can do something for you. Making sculptures is my life and I do this even though more than 30 years. On my 6th year, I already started in the workshop of my grandfather. From him I received his craft experience. In addition to my free work I make a lot of work in which contract also memorable images monuments but also urns. For these monuments I use different materials such as wood (oak), stone (marble), often in combination with metal (if desired).
 
Personal
The special thing about this personal approach is that I will look, together with you (the relatives) for the best translation of your wishes, ideas and memories. Through this close contact, and my knowledge there will develop a unique and memorable personal sculpture. The development is also an intensive process and often an important contribution to the rouwverwerking.
 
Experience and quality
As an artist I have made several grave statues and monuments. These sculptures can not be seen on my website out of respect for the families. Yet, in the diversity and quality of my (free) work you can find my years of experience. I think that it’s important that you can find in all my work the priority of my professionalism in combination with my passion for making sculptures and the reflecting of my feelings in my work. Quality is a requirement for me, so my scuptures are often made from Oak or Marble.

Costs
My opinion is that everybody should be able to have a unique memorable sculpture. A personal memorial or monument is not always more expensive than the traditional offerings. By the direct contact between artist and client, the cost of a memorable sculpture is relatively low.

Attentie
Wood is not a stone. However, it is very durable and with the passage of time it is just beautiful. The wood is impregnated against pests and fungi after when it is finished with an organic oil. This should be done each year (in consultation it can be provided by me). However, because it ‘s outside, there is alway’s a possibillity that tho wood can crack trhough the weatherability and high temperature. If you mind you should not opt for wood.
