January 2016: Presently Crow Hill studio is in the moving process. Pottery orders are postponed until July 2016.

Birth plates are a specialty item at Crow Hill Pottery. Each plate is individually created to celebrate a birth or birthday. The plates are typically decorated with three flowers or parts, and three small birds. This design is inspired by the Pennsylvania German decoration of everyday items with motifs from nature. The plates are decorated and hand-lettered with the name and date of birth, along with additional information if desired (i.e. time, weight, length). They may be ordered from a special page at Oakleaf Pottery, where my father has kindly set up an order form complete with online payment information at his site.

Specialty bowls & plates are also available, to celebrate a wedding or commitment ceremony or anniversary. These pieces are decorated with names and the date of the event, along with additional designs. These may be ordered using the form on the Contact Us page. Pricing is determined by size of piece and decoration.

Additional pieces may be created to mark a special event or person, an important milestone, a graduation or a special gift. Please use the form on the Contact Us page to request a special order item and I will return your email with pricing and feasibility of the project.
