We wanted to create a very simple, more modern style of birdbath for our customers and so the Simple Elegance birdbath was born. Made with our special Locking feature on the tops for a more secure hold and glazed with Burley's uniquely made colors, these birdbaths are sure to impress. The rims of the birdbath are fettled for natural textured grip for the birds.
Burley is best known for our unique hand painted birdbaths and planters. This birdbath is 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.
Top: 16.5”d x 3.75”h
Pedestal: 19”h : 4"d(top) & 10.25"d(base)
Weight: 12lbs / 14lbs
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.

I am very disappointed with the birdbath base in particular. It has several places where the clay was “dimpled”; I don’t know of a better term. If the glaze had covered these imperfections well it would not be so bad. The product I am replacing,which has served many years, had no such defects. I own many Burley products so this was a complete shock. My 2 phone calls have not been returned. I will make a trip to Burley Clay seeking a satisfactory resolution.
The birdbath arrived in excellent, secure packaging without any chips or breaks. The company was very helpful and communicative, keeping me informed of every step along the way. Love this beautiful ceramic birdbath!
I chose the bellflower color because it will go beautifully with my pink azaleas and bright orange daylilies near my bird feeders. It arrived well-packaged and unharmed. The raw edge that rings the bowl reminds me of my grandmother’s mixing bowl of bygone days. I love it and I can’t wait to gift it to the variety of birds that brighten my days.
