The blue bird is a sign of joy and happiness coming, reminding us all, of the beauty of nature and beauty in our everyday lives. Burley has had a long love affair with nature and wildlife, we strive to create pottery that reflects our connection to it. We also know how sometimes nature strolls into your back yard and knocks your birdbath top off. All hand painted birdbaths now come with a locking top to help keep things together.
Burley is best known for our unique hand painted birdbaths and planters. 100% handcrafted with rich clay deposits in Roseville, Ohio. Burley is the last American Made pottery factory around. We still make pottery using the lost art of Jiggering and some of our jiggermen go back generations. All hand-painted planters and birdbaths are signed by the artist who paints them, making each one unique and personal.
Top: 16.5”d x 3.5”h
Pedestal: 20.5”h : 4"d(top) & 10.25"d(base)

Place your birdbath away from foliage where predators hide.
Place your birdbath a few yards from trees so that birds can perch on limbs and groom themselves.
Keep water fresh to attract birds and prevent algae.
Add Burley Clay’s birdbath fillers or rocks for birds to land on when drinking or bathing.
To prevent water from freezing in your birdbath in the winter use a de-icer.
If your birdbath cannot be maintained in the winter turn your birdbath top over or take indoors. Freezing water may cause cracking.
Does it freeze?
A: Yes. Our products are not freeze-proof and if any water is allowed to sit in the tops and freeze, it will cause cracking and then will break. Winter storage is always recommended to prevent any damages. You can get full year use out of your birdbath if you use a birdbath heater for the colder months.
Are the glazes safe and free of toxins?
A: Yes, all of our glazes are safe for the birds. All of our glazes are free of lead and cadmium.
Will the handpainting fade?
A: Unfortunately yes, but this takes many, many years. Like most things left outdoors, they will eventually fade. If you have one of our Handpainted birdbath sets and see your piece fading, you can find Outdoor Paint and touch it up for a personal touch.
Is it really made with local Ohio clay?
A: Yes it really is made right here in Roseville, Ohio! We have a local clay mine, which is dug weekly and hauled down the road a few miles to our factory in Roseville. Everything is made on site here, from dirt to finished product and then shipped directly to you. We make about half of our glazes ourselves and source the others from our friends at Mayco in Columbus, OH!
My top broke on my birdbath, is there anything I can do?
A: Sadly no, once they are broken there is not much you can do. Most glues are not safe for the wildlife that will be enjoying your birdbath. If you only have hairline cracks in your top and want to prevent further damage - we recommend using FlexSeal Clear. Once the sealant has cured for 24hrs, it is safe for the birds.
How do I clean my birdbath?
A: Use a wildlife friendly cleaner to scrub any dirt and gunk away. Some of our staff use a bucket of hot water and some Comet to clean theirs. Just mix comet with the water and scrub until clean. Rinse thoroughly Do not let the mixture soak in the bath.
How do I clean the Birdbath Fillers?
A: You can clean the fillers the same way as you clean the birdbath tops. Use a wildlife friendly cleaner and a good scrub brush to scrub the gunk off the fillers and then rinse them off really well. Don't let the fillers sit in the solution for too long either.
My item arrived broken, now what do I do?
A: If any of your items arrive broken, don't sweat it! Take a picture of the damaged item(s) and send it to us in an email with your name & address and we will send out a replacement at no cost to you.

The bird bath is beautiful the only thing is that one of the wooden pegs that hold the top to the base broke already. I don’t thing it should be wooden I think it should be heavy plastic instead
Hello Patricia, I'm happy to hear that you love the birdbath itself but I understand that you are disappointed with the locking pegs. I completely understand how frustrating it is, we ran out of our normal plastic pegs and have been using these birch wooden dowels in the meantime, our production team tested these before hand and they had a hard time trying to break them and assured us they would work just fine until we can get more plastic pegs.
I have a small stash of plastic pegs I have been using for replacements for customers and I will send a few out for you so you can replace your wooden dowels.
