Porcelain Portraits

Porcelain portraits have been used for decades as a way to further personalize monuments. Imprinting the image of your loved one on their monument immortalizes them in the eyes of future generations.

Today's photo porcelain production techniques are refined works of art that capture the spirit of our loved ones through high quality reproduction of the image with stunning details.

A scan of your photo is transfered to a high quality German porcelain blank using a metallic ink. The porcelain is then fired to temperatures above 1600°Fahrenheit. At these high temperatures, the ink permeates into the porcelain creating a highly durable portrait.

Porcelain portaits can be incorporated into any design on any monument. The exact placement of the portrait is usually determined during the layout process.

 

 

Available Shapes

Porcelain portraits are now available in many shapes. Oval, round, "domed", square, rectangular or heart shapes can all be used.
