Memories are timeless, and bronze grave markers are one way to keep those memories alive. Bronze creates a beautiful memorial to those loved ones who have passed on. These unique and durable grave markers are not a new tradition, but are becoming increasingly more popular.

One of the benefits of bronze as opposed to stone is the personality of the material. It weathers differently and adds a unique touch in the cemetery amid stone plaques and sculptures. A strong and durable material, carvings and words remain visible just as long as or longer than stone, as it does not erode as quickly, and can be treated in the melting phase to keep this from happening.

If allowed to oxidize, bronze takes on a uniquely beautiful quality that lends even more character to the grave marker. While oxidization can be cleaned away and the bronze polished, leaving the unique coloring and patterns of oxidized bronze alone can create a rustic feel and timeless quality. In addition, if whether you choose to allow oxidization or not, color variations are still easily acquired. Antiquing and glazes can make stark contrasts between the vivid lusters of polished, naked bronze against a dark treated background.

As bronze has no pores such as stone has, there is another benefit to bronze grave markers over their opposition. Vegetation such as moss, grass, weeds and other unwanted natural decorations cannot gain a foothold on the metal. This leads to less time cleaning the gravesite so that you can enjoy your visit without having to worry about protecting your loved one’s burial plot.

If you still prefer a stone marker for your own future plot or your family’s past or present, you do not have to part with that idea. Bronze additions such as information plaques, decorations or figurines easily enhance the stone of your choice. This technique gives more depth and variation to what you would be able to do with only stone or bronze individually. It gives your marker more personality and displays your broad preferences. The coupling of bronze to stone is easy in the right hands, and if done correctly, results in a singular work of art that will last centuries.

The decorative aspect of bronze grave markers sets it apart from the competition. As bronze is a malleable metal, it can be melted down and poured into a mold for a quick and vibrant display. Or, it can be carved more easily than stone. If a mistake is made, unlike stone, bronze can be melted down and the work can be repeated from scratch. With its stone counterpart, the stone is rendered useless, and in most cases and simply discarded. With bronze, there is no waste. Anything left over eventually is reformed into a different piece, making it a more favorable material.

A final resting place needs beauty and spirit to show the personality of those we have lost. Bronze can help you reach these lofty goals in ways that traditional material lacks. Whatever your tastes or desires, bronze grave markers can give you the visual appeal and qualities that you require. With bronze, immortality, art and history are yours in a beautiful and lasting memorial.
