Power of Personalization: Zuni Bear

 



We created this custom Naive American influenced Zuni Bear in memory of our neighbor lady, Jan. This memorial was inspired by a tattoo that she had and her love of Native culture.

Power of Personalization: The love story of "Chip" Stickers Guitar

 



"I met Jon in the summer of 2003.  The first day I met him he had Chip with him.  In fact every time I hung out with him in the beginning of our relationship Chip was with him.  Jon went to another place every single time he played.  Music was his Heaven on earth.  As like turned into love I began to leave my mark on Chip in the form of stickers.  When I truly knew I loved Jon I started placing stickers on Chip while Jon played.  The first was the tie-dyed heart.  I can still remember the look on Jon's face.  It was breathtaking.  I knew he was in love too.  Days turned to months.  About 5 years into our relationship it was time to retire Chip.  He had gotten old and the sound was just not the same anymore.  Jon got a new guitar.  Every time we looked at Chip we referred to him as "our love story".  We could clearly remember the nights we spent together getting to know each other and falling deeper and deeper in love.  8 years later we were married.  We always thought of Chip and had intended on having him framed and displayed on the wall as a testimony of our love for each other.  When Jon tragically passed away at the age of 35, I wanted him to go off with music.  He had 4 guitars in our home.  2 were guitars he played, 1 was our guestbook at our wedding and the other was "our love story".  Our son did not want to part with the guitars that daddy played so...I sent Jon with Chip.  I took lots of pictures of Chip.  I was devastated.  I then found Awesome Urns.  They recreated Chip as an urn for my husband's remains.  I truly can think of no better resting place for Jon than inside our love story.  The urn is perfect.  It is exquisite and precisely what I was looking for.  I can never thank you enough for the sense of solace you have given me during this time of grief."

Power of Personalization: Burial Caket Urn for Papa Gene



Eugene Walton Forsythe

December 5, 1921 - September 15, 2019

Today we laid our grandfather to rest.  Eugene Walton Forsythe was granted a long life of 97 years. We were fortunate to care for him at home in his last days. He reunited with his love, Doris June, on September 15th...the day they would have celebrated 73 years of marriage.  He was the last born of 13 children...a was proud and brave soldier...a strong, hardworking father...and a loving grandfather. May his soul rest in eternal peace.

We created this custom Casket urn with his beautiful, old-fashioned signature. His wish was to be cremated...my grandmother wished for him to have a casket and be buried.  Today he was interred next to his beloved wife....so, that they both get their wishes.

Pre-need and a Work of Art...Cheers to another 40 years!


Upon ordering a Winged-Heart YURN, "Fierce Robin" wrote:

Pre-need, preparing for cremation urn



It isn't too often that we get an order for pre-need arrangements... so, it was a different kind of experience to connect with Robin regarding her memorial artwork...rather than a mournful event.

She had come across our YURN listing previously.... So, with an approaching heart surgery and the encouragement of her daughter, she decided to go ahead and purchase the urn she wanted for herself. And, Lord willing, she would would be able to enjoy the piece as a work of art in her home, for many years, until the time comes to utilize it as a functional cremation urn.

We love the thoughtfulness she put into her decision, for her daughter and her outlook regarding our "art".  It's so touching to know that our art brings value and comfort to those grieving, and also to those who can enjoy them as artful home decor, prior to needing them for their intended purpose.

We enjoyed getting to know more about Robin through this experience.  Her career in healthcare and God-centered passion for helping others, her love of traveling, and her overall fun personality and zeal for life.

While working on her piece, we were surprised to wake one morning to read the sweetest five-star review on our Etsy store.....we hadn't even completed or shipped her memorial yet, and still she gave us a glowing review!  How awesome!

We received postitive review before the item was completed.

We completed Robin's Heart sculpture and she received it prior to her surgery.

Memorial Art to enjoy in home

We are happy to follow-up on the status of Robin's open-heart surgery...

She pulled through it like a champ!  Now, she'll heal and prepare herself for a vacation to St. Lucia in April.  :)

Live it up! With love! ~

The Power of Personalization: A Pine Cone for Will


Will was described as loving life and everything about it.  His wife, Paula, wanted something related to nature to remember him...maybe a Pine Tree or nature scene? We suggested that a Pine Cone urn would be cool and she agreed.

They were married in Lake Tahoe and she saved a pine cone from their time spent there together.  Following his passing, Paula returned to Lake Tahoe for some needed time and reflection.  She took along Will's cremains and scattered a portion of the ashes there in remembrance of him and their union.

Pine trees hold a special place in our hearts too. We loved creating this piece to honor Will. We hope that it offers Paula, and their family, some comfort and beauty in their time of mourning and in the years ahead.

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.

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.

angel urn, heart urn, cremation urn, handmade



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!
