Bronze Memorials Remember a very special life with a custom bronze memorial tribute. Bronze is the perfect choice for your memorial because it is a metal whose beauty not only lasts through the ages but evolves from the sheen of newly-polished, cast metal to a warm patina. This process, called the aging of bronze, is what makes bronze such a unique, enduring and appreciated metal and will serve as a long-term tribute to your loved one.
Handcrafted Details Every bronze memorial is touched by at least 27 pairs of hands in its creation. Our skilled artisans handcraft every one of our custom bronze memorials with fine detailing to capture the ageless elegance of the bronze.
