The Power of Personalization: Joe's Boots


Cowboy Boots Urn


Recently, we were asked by friends of the family to sculpt an urn for their loved one Joe.
Joe loved to ride his motorcycle, and was affectionately known as "Cowboy" to his bike club friends and loved ones.  It was decided that the most fitting tribute to remember him would be his cowboy boots.

His wife, Robin, sent us pictures of his most recent pair of boots, of which he wore with a spur on his right boot.  We used these pictures as our references to sculpt Joe's Boots.

Additional personal touches included engravings of his name, dates, a handwritten note to Robin.

We were able to hand deliver Joe's boots to his family. We were so touched by their warm response and kind words for Joe's memorial. We greatly appreciate Robin and her sister, Laura, for working with us to honor him through our artwork.

Artists' Thoughts: Butterfly for Baby Vienna


We're sometimes overcome by significance of this memorial art and what it means for others. We take it so seriously, that it has it's moments of overwhelm with our desire to always do our best and meet any expectations the customer has...

 ...then we stop and take a deep breath.

We reflect on our purpose and give thanks for opportunities... to be a positive force, bringing comfort to others through our work... it's powerful, it's humbling, it's heartbreaking, it's beautifully human... it's love.


From our first communication with the Theriaque Family, we were so touched by their open hearts and kind words....







We worked with them to create a unique butterfly urn to remember their little girl.  They chose design elements that they wanted represented.....the size, positioning, colors and engraving inscription.

The result, a sweet, precious cremation urn for Baby Vienna....


Upon receiving her urn...


















...And our hearts are full.

The Power of Personalization: Twin Pedal Steels

For sisters, a pair of matching pedal steel guitar urns for a Florida dad and musician.  They are engraved, "LGH Our Humble Hero" with dates on the sides.

His daughters chose to incorporate several sentimental elements...hunter green, for the green steel guitar their dad built himself...checkerboard pattern, for his love of chess...and the Emmons logo because he was friends with Buddy Emmons.

They shared with us a sweet story about the value he held in serving others through acts of kindness, and his encouragement for others to do the same.

His daughter shared:

"Our father left a beautiful legacy, which I would love to share with you, to give you an idea of what our Daddy was like. He was very political, and very much a smart aleck, but a big, soft, lovable teddy bear, too. A couple of local news stations did stories about his legacy. Please take a moment to view...and pass this information along to others, to continue spreading the love."

An appreciation for uniqueness...Mom's Handwriting





"I finally found the perfect placement for my mom’s ashes. It’s unique and beautiful just like her. If you know me well then you know I love creativity, personalization and have an appreciation for uniqueness... if you knew my mom then you know where I got it! 🖤 @awesome.urns was so amazing to work with and made this process not only a little easier but also very special and individual. #momshandwriting #beautiful #unique #perfectlyimperfect"  - April W.
