Custom-made Family Keepsakes

A beautiful keepsake for both parents and grandparents is a pottery piece featuring a beloved child's handprints or footprints. A family's handprints can also be featured on a piece. Plates, platters, large shallow bowls, tiles and plaques can all become the canvas for a family's memories.

The family keepsakes made here at Potterville Pottery are as varied as the families who come in for them. They have been made in earthenware and stoneware. Sometimes family members want to have a hand in making the piece, but need assistance. Some want only to glaze it, and others want one of our potters to make the piece from A to Z.

Handprints and footprints must be impressed in wet clay, so it is necessary to discuss the what, how and when for your family keepsake in advance. We are happy to provide a written estimate of cost, as well.




Custom-made Family Keepsakes

 

At Potterville Pottery, we have made many a customer happy with our hand-made and/or custom-painted pieces. Our potters craft stoneware pottery from white, buff, and red clay. We also stock a wide selection of bisque pieces for custom-painted pottery. Customers choose from Potterville Pottery’s own stoneware glazes or from a variety of commercial glazes to complete their pottery. Potterville Pottery only uses non-toxic, food-safe glazes.

We accept commissioned work on a case-by-case basis. We provide an estimate of the cost and the time it will take. While all materials and firing are included in the estimate, we charge hourly for labor on custom-painted orders. A deposit of 25% is required to place an order.
