Your bouquet, your wedding location, your own design or choose from my standard designs? Your special day will be forever remembered in clay as a keepsake. My own hands create the plates, first from a ball of clay, then made into a plate (salad size or dinner size), decorated with your special design and the heat from the kiln matures the clay into a memory that can be displayed. Inspiration first came from the early German plates I saw visiting my Grandparents in Pennsylvania. I'm drawn to tradition, heritage and family. My first plate was made 32 years ago for my daughter. I was honored to make her a wedding plate recently. After creating hundreds of plates every year, they have now become my signature work.
Need a gift for your attendants, parents, grandparents? I can incorporate your idea into a memory plate for them. I'm not limited to just weddings. Anniversaries, new homes, graduations, births, adoptions can all be significant life events for a handmade clay plate.

It has always been a pleasure to work with Nancy. My most recent purchase was a special order plate for a bride and groom who were married in Luzerne, Switzerland. Nancy created a beautiful plate depicting the area and the couple absolutely loved it! A wonderful surprise for them. Nancy is definitely my "go to" artisan when it comes to one-of-a-kind, personalized gifts for wedding couples!Sent on 10/20/2010

These plates are wonderful. You can personalize them in anyway that you would like. For instance, I have had Nancy do anything from the Naval Academy chapel to a beach scene to a mountain or even beautiful cherry blossoms. My newlywed friends have loved this unique gift.Sent on 10/20/2010
