The Power of Personalization: Cowboy 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.

An appreciation for uniqueness...Mom's Handwriting

Inspiration Found: "Sing Me Back Home"





It's important to us to keep mindful of the gravity of bereavement art...to find empathy for each family we are serving. In order to feel more connected, we like to search for obituaries of those who are remembered with our art. We want to know the stories of their lives, for which, we sometimes cry and are often humbled.

With this guitar YURN, the family wanted the quote "Sing Me Back Home" engraved on his memorial.  We found this gentleman's obituary which mentioned his YouTube channel. We enjoyed listening to his music as we worked on his memorial. It was a great find to hear his cover of Merle Haggard's "Sing Me Back Home"....what special memories and music that he left for his family.

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






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: 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!

The Power of Personalization: A YURN Surprise


We started listening to an entrepreneur podcast a few months ago and joined a related Facebook group. Nathan, the host, had shared a story on his podcast about his tough childhood experiences and the close bond he had with his little brother. Tragically, is brother died in 2012, at the age of 29, from alcoholism.

We understand the struggles having loved ones afflicted by alcoholism, and were touched by his story of profound loss. His positive take-away was very moving as he spoke about how he has grown from all of his challenges.

We were inspired to make him a memorial for his brother, and it was delivered to him in Colorado as a surprise....


How amazing that he shared this video and allowed us to experience the un-boxing with him. It was very touching and brought tears to our eyes too...


We designed a graphic for the inside of the YURN, it had this quote that Nathan described as his life's motto.
