BEYOND AWESOME!!!...Connecting beyond the purchase



When given the opportunity, we love to connect with families.

It is hard to know everything our customers are going through following the death of their loved one. Often, we can only imagine the profound loss they are experiencing. When communicating with customers, we just allow that space to unfold how it needs to for those in mourning. 

Sometimes there is no communication beyond the email order, and that's certainly understandable. However, other times we have the chance to connect and collaborate ideas with the customer....we truly value these opportunities. It touches our hearts deeply when we can learn more about who the YURN is remembering.

Recently, we had a wonderful experience getting to know more about Mark through his wife Diane.  She shared photos and opened up to us about the great health challenges he experienced preceding his death....she told us about their 30 year relationship, his love for music, their travels together, their devotion to fostering hundreds of pets through the years, and how she loved to make him laugh.

She wanted his guitar YURN to be a perfect expression of him and her love for him.  We shared with her the different personalizations we could do to make it a unique and special piece.  We added a handwritten note with his frequent "Love you today" sentiment to her...a line from his favorite song along with his signature...her "Eternal Love" expression for him...his name and dates....and even painted it to match his favorite Martin guitar.

To be of service to her is a blessing to us. These opportunities to touch each others lives in a loving and heartfelt way is what it's all about, and we'll remember this connection always.

The Power of Personalization: Lefty, Cut-Away Washburn



This custom guitar memorial is bound for Australia. We collaborated with the customer to create this special remembrance piece for her dad. It is inspired by his left-handed, cut-away Washburn that he loved so much. 

It reads,
Stairway to Heaven
Dad (with flame design)
21.02.68 - 21.12.16

We received this kind note from his daughter:

"Thank you both it's absolutely beautiful!... I'm absolutely blown away at the outcome, it's truly amazing the work you do. I'm so grateful to have found you, I'd spent days searching for something to celebrate my dads passions in life, and you've delivered so much more than I'd ever expected...It's unbelievable the work and attention to detail. Thank you so much for creating such a wonderful memorial for my dad. It has so much character, he would have loved it and I certainly do. I'm absolutely over the moon. Thanks again Jamaica and Rob, you've truly outdone yourselves."    - Bethany S.

I felt as though I was not their customer, but a close friend.






FIVE-STAR REVIEW
"I scoured the internet looking for an urn that would represent my brother who passed away last year. When I saw the guitar Yurn by MorzArt I knew I'd found the one.
Jamaica and Rob were absolutely remarkable. They took one of the hardest things I'll have to do in life and made it so meaningful. From their interest of my wishes in the creation of the Yurn to their eagerness to work with me on payment, Jamaica and Rob showed much kindness and understanding and I felt as though I was not their customer, but a close friend.
When I received the finished Yurn it was 100% as unique as my brother.
Thank you for everything, Jamaica and Rob."  - Lindsay E

Practicing Prototypes: Flying Heart



This Flying Heart YURN is a prototype model that we will be releasing soon. In order to practice our techniques, we created this one for a Facebook friend. She is experiencing the great loss of losing her fiancee just prior to their marriage. Our thoughts are with her in the coming days ahead.

Heart with Wings Wall-Mounted Urn
Facebook Post

I am overwhelmed with comfort and love. There are some who look down on virtual-only friendships. Tonight, though, I've proof to show how wrong they are. Friends I have never met IRL have given me an incredible gift. Jamaica and Rob of MorzArt sent an unexpected package. This gorgeous piece is a deep urn (or as they call it, a Yurn). It will hang on a wall as an urn, a memory box, or simply a beautiful reminder of Keith Johnson's life. I hope that none of you need funerary art for a very long time. But when you do, please look up these fantastic, compassionate artists. www.yurns.gallery
