Power of Personalization: Captain Lived Life 'His Way'


For an Alabama Coast Shrimp Boat Capt’n…who lived and loved fully, unabashedly, his own way. These shrimp boat urns were handmade in his honor, for each of his three sisters.




Made for a local friend, Kathy, and her family...she would tell stories of her brother Doug's adventures and trials, big wins and pitfalls. Doug was known for his kind heart and unconventional style. The last boat he owned was fittingly named, "My Way".

May he rest in peace.

Power of Personalization: Stock Car for The Margarita Lady


We were honored again to create a custom piece for the Flickinger Family.  This piece makes the third urn they've asked us to make.  We were touched that they entrusted us to help them memorialize Mom this time.

Wanda loved dirt track, stock car racing. A long time fan, she was known as "The Margarita Lady" to her racing friends, and had expressed that wanting a stock car urn when it came her time. We based the design from pictures sent of a Modified race car of her favorite driver, Wendell Wallace's #88 of Batesville, AR.


We hand delivered this piece to her family, who were happy with how the piece turned out and how perfect it was for Wanda.

The Power of Personalization: Twin Pedal Steels


pedal steel guitar cremation urns

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."

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.

Practicing Prototypes: Angel with Heart


We have been working on prototypes for our new Angel with Heart YURN. The first few casts of a new models is where we work our processes and color finishes. With this model, the angel's dress is the main vessel for cremains placement.

This prototype was made with Jamaica's grandmother, Doris, in mind. We personalized this model by engraving her initial "D", along with "Mom" and her grandma name, "Doie".  It won't be used as an cremation urn, but will hang on the tree that she rests under at the cemetery.

Soon we will be perfecting this model, taking pictures, naming it, writing copy and rolling her out into our production line!

All I Could Do Was Stare...Pictures Don't Do Them Justice



YURNSbyMorzArt


"When my Daughter came to me a couple of days after my Soulmate passed away, she said to me, 'Dad I have found the perfect Urn for Mom's ashes'. I looked at the picture of the Sunflower with the Butterfly on it, and I almost cried. I told her, 'that is the perfect place for your Mom's ashes'. After we received the urn and I opened it, all I could do was stare at it. The pictures on your website do it no justice compared to the beauty of it when it was in my hands! Thank You for this work of ART! God Bless You."   - Jim G.

Etsy Review: "Amazing, amazing, amazing! They were so wonderful with us through the whole process, kept us updated with how the YURN was coming along, and shipping was fast and secure! 10/10 A+ would recommend!!" -  Megan G.

YURNS Turns One, First Year in Review



One year ago today, we launched our new line of sculptural works, YURNS by MorzArt!
This endeavor to create unique cremation urns has been a blessing for our art and hearts. We are so grateful our path has led us to this work, and are humbled to create our special memorials for those grieving the loss of a loved one.
We are encouraged by positive feedback and are happy to report that we have sold 26 YURNS, in 9 states and 3 countries. It is an exciting future as we progress forward, and over the course of this next year, we hope to devote more time into growing our business and introducing new models into our production line.
Many thanks to each of you for your support!

After Such A Loss...YURNS are Easier to Look at.


We received this message with a recent order for a Bass Fish YURN:

"I just want to tell you that I lost my youngest son... I have put off buying an urn because I was looking for something special. I knew exactly what I wanted and when I saw this urn I knew it was the reason why I waited. My son was an avid fisherman and this represents him perfectly. Thank you for making unique urns which also make it easier for a parent to look at after such a loss."  - Myrna A.
