Most popular plates are for newborns but don’t forget about my logo plates, anniversary and wedding or any special occasion.

Bodmer’s Personalized Custom Pottery Plates, located in downtown Buckeystown, Maryland, is home to Nancy Bodmer’s clay studio. Nancy began making personalized pottery plates in 1978 and today custom designs over 400 plates a year. This handmade pottery makes the perfect customized pottery gift for your special occasion – weddings, anniversaries, new homes, new babies, children and adoptions, family trees, logos, life partners and your own ideas. There is no showroom but appointments can be made to order, discuss and pickup commemorative plates.

While our best sellers are Wedding & Anniversary plates and Baby plates, keep in mind that just about anything can be added to one of our plates.

I think this is the first time one has drawn tears!

Dear Nancy,

I heard from my sister that my nephew and niece reported that they “nearly cried” when they opened their gift and saw your plate commemorating Avelino’s birth and including the representation of Beau!  Thank you.  I’ve always had enthusiastic responses to your plates, but I think this is the first time one has drawn tears!

That passion has taken her work to Capitol Hill.

Nancy Bodmer gave her daughter the middle name Clay.

That passion has taken her work to Capitol Hill.

She was recently commissioned to make plates for the 42 new members of the House of Representatives, plus the seven committee chairs.

Though Bodmer said she has made “everything but the kitchen sink,” commemorative plates have become her specialty. Her first one was 36 years ago for the birth of her daughter. She said she likes the element of family and history that the plates encompass. The options for designs and messages are also appealing to Bodmer.

“There’s a possibility I made a plate for a future president of the United States,” Bodmer said. “They’ve got to start somewhere.”

My cousin and her husband received the plate and LOVED it!!

My cousin and her husband received the plate and LOVED it!! Her whole family thought it was beautiful and such a wonderful keepsake to have and cherish. My cousin enjoys painting as a hobby so she especially appreciated all the work you put into creating the plate.

I did watch your video and enjoyed learning about your process and inspiration. I definitely feel connected to you even though we’ve never met in person. And I love that your work is not only in my home but also in the homes of my close friends and family. :)

Take care!

Dear Nancy,

Your beautiful plate for William was a huge success at his birthday party. I had forgotten how lovely they were and I was so thrilled I thought of you when I was thinking of a lasting gift.

Thank you also for wrapping it so beautifully, your attention to detail is obvious.

Thank you, Nancy, for the beautiful plate, We love it.
