Testimonials

When I started considering a memorial bench for Bob, I never imagined the piece would be so representative of our life together– bright, shining and ever changing. Linda’s interpretation of my needs was perfect beyond words.

Lisa Montgomery Charlotte, North Carolina.

 

I am so thrilled with “Clare’s Dragonfly,” a garden stone which is a memorial in honor of my mother.  The piece includes my mother’s china and is the showcase of my garden.  I will treasure it for a lifetime.  

Jan Mosca, Minnesott Beach, North Carolina

 

The bench is absolutely beautiful.  I couldn’t have been happier with the finished product.  It brought tears to my eyes when I opened it.  

Debbie Ranson, Nassau, Bahamas

 

I can not thank you enough for the heart and soul you put into the project.  You have captured the essence of our dear friend through your creative use of colors and designs.  You have taken God’s gift and shared it.  We are truly blessed because of you.  My love and thanks for all you have done.

The bench is the center piece of Devin’s garden and a beautiful mosaic of everything our son loved and who he was while he was here on Earth.

Linda’s artistic ability creates a loving tribute through her memorials.

Penny Gahan, Oriental, North Carolina

 

We are so glad that our friend recommended your website.   My staff and I were overwhelmed with the craftsmanship of your bench.  It is exquisite.  The butterfly mosaic provides a special tribute to a colleague who will remain in our hearts forever.  Thank you for your kindness and professionalism as we worked together to see this project to completion.  It was a pleasure to work with you.  

Brenda Valentine, Gallatin, Tennessee

 

Hannah’s bench arrived yesterday.  Words cannot describe how beautiful it is.  It means so much to us that you obviously put a tremendous amount of work and love into creating such a stunning piece of art.  

Michelle Landers, Lexington, Kentucky

 

I have to tell you how moved and awed I was when I first saw the bench.  What an a absolutely beautiful piece of art.  What a beautiful symbol of our son’s spirit, athleticism, and character.  I love how the beautiful iridescent pieces sparkle in the sunlight.  Thank you for putting your heart into the bench; it’s obvious you love what you do.

 The bench will be a beautiful place for the kids at school to visit to remember and reflect on their friend Andrew.  You have brought smiles to my family and to many kids, teachers and staff at Stratford who are continuing to cope with the loss of such a wonderful friend and human being.  We will enjoy the bench always.

Yiphen Polcyn, Andrew’s Mom, Sunnyvale, California

IMG_20140827_081310_577Water’s End Studio specializes in custom vintage china and Italian glass mosaic memorial garden benches and stones created by both client and artist as a beautiful place to sit and find peace in one’s thoughts, especially in a time of loss. Water’s End Studio’s personalized, handcrafted memorial benches are celebratory, stone-like art pieces encapsulating the memory of a loved one. These vintage china, mosaic garden benches and garden stones are hand crafted, one of a kind art pieces created by Inner Banks artist, Linda Solby. Pieces of fine china (often found in antique stores) and highly reflective glass are combined to form a medley of fine design. Sharp edges are dremeled to perfection reflecting the sunlight and leaving the surface smooth to the touch. Because the benches and stones weather well outdoors and the beauty endures, these mosaics are the perfect way to memorialize a loved one.

Each bench or garden stone is custom designed after discussion with the client customer. The bench or stone is an artistic piece dedicated to the one you love and therefore is a reflective expression of this person who is so dear to your heart. A garden stone or bench is a beautiful way to celebrate memories. Personal items can be incorporated making the design very special.
