Monument portraits, photo ceramics and porcelain pictures

The time goes by, the memories will remain into the images.
In the ancient times were used to make wall inscription into the cave, fresco’s were realized, the stones were inscribed and were realized mosaics.

Beautiful mosaics and hand-painted ceramic decorations from ancient Middle Eastern and Asian cultures survive today retaining their color even after centuries of exposure to intense sunlight and wear.

For thousands of years, hand painting with inorganic pigments and subsequent firing at very high temperature has been the only method for creating durable images on ceramic.

The loss of a loved ones leaves a void in our life and the memory fade away with the years.
The photograph is a real image of a memory and give us back a fragment of life.

The photo-ceramic guarantees in the years our loved ones memory, the places and expression of their life.

Keeping alive the memory of loved ones thru images and pictures is as common today as in the past, and today’s technique of photo porcelain and photo ceramics let us remember and honor those we truly cherish.

Porcelain plaques (photo porcelain) allow us to keep our loved ones forever and characterize special moments while standing up to the best of time.

A porcelain plaque remains with us forever.

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


Ceramic Monument Portraits

Ceramic monument portraits are made from a porcelain or ceramic tablet in which color pigments have been baked at over 800°C.

Colors willl not fade in any weather conditions.

Our line of tombstone ceramic pictures is available in color or black and white and they carry a lifetime guarantee against fading.

They come especially in the traditional oval shape, a rectangular shape and in the heart shape.

There is also a variety of open frames and locking cover frames to enhance the beauty of the portrait and protect it.

Photo porcelain materials and manufacturing techniques

Since from the beginnings we’ve used plaques in real porcelain (known as German porcelain).

Porcelain is a ceramic product made of a mixture of caolino and aluminium silicate, and when put in an oven at a temperature between 1250° and 1300° vitrify and become a frosted white material.

Photo-porcelain was invented by the Chinese between VII and VIII centuries B.C.

In Europe it began to be produced only in the XVII century.


The equipment and materials used in the photo-ceramic production are always in evolution, as in many other fields, but it is our duty to guarantee that the new technologies do not compromise the quality and so our customers satisfaction.
It is passed a very long time since the photo-ceramics were hand painted and the color were not good.
Now we tend to the total perfection and each single original photo is processed by the computer making even some radical changes.

The new photoceramic digital technology not only allow very high quality definition, but they also allow combination with other technologies, porcelain decoration, graphic art, photography and photoshop, unthinkable until some time ago.

The recent development of photo ceramic using digital photographic technology, coupled with new ceramic materials, allow the reproduction of any design, picture and generally anything that can be digitized electronically.

The technology allow the creation of digital reproductions using “ceramic inks” in standard color printers. In normal printers the inks are normally of organic nature, which in our case are substituted with their colors counterpart made with special inorganic patented oxide, specially prepared for this use.

All of our photo-ceramics are kiln-fired at 1500F (800°C) and are U.V. resistant, weatherproof and pollution proof. We are so confident of their enduring quality that our products are guaranteed against breakage, vandalism and deterioration. With the finest porcelain and our stable mineral pigments, we are able to create a product that will last for generations to come.

The memorial portrait is digitally reproduced which will ensure an actual copy of the picture sent in for reproduction. It is understood that the special inks/dyes used in the color reproduction are subject to very high temperatures in the special kilns used to bake the porcelain, so there are times when certain colors will have a slight variation in hues from the original picture. This is normal when baking a digitally reproduced picture into the porcelain plaque.
