The original die for the Adobe planter was rediscovered while archiving lost & forgotten Burley dies. Formally called the #85 pot, was hidden for decades in the dark but now shines brighter than ever with its southwestern motif and beautiful glazes.
Our planters are 100% American Made and handcrafted with Ohio clay right here in Roseville. Burley is the last American made pottery factory around, we use the lost art of Jiggering as well as a hydraulic press to create some of the most unique and beautiful pottery in the US.
Size: 7.75"d x 7"h
As with all ceramics, our products are not freeze proof, so they must be taken in for the winter to prevent any water from seeping in, freezing, cracking, and breaking your beautiful planter.
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.

A nice planter. Good thick construction. The color is a nice neutral color. The shipping packaging was impressive. My only problem is that there is no Burley Pottery brand anywhere on the planter. While a very minor issue for most I ordered this as a wedding gift for a couple whose last name will be Burley and has family history going to the area of Ohio where Burley pottery is from so I thought it would be a fun gift. However with it lacking any type of brand it makes the gift a little less special.
Hello Meghan, I am sorry that your Adobe Planter does not have our Burley stamp on the bottom, this must have been an oversight when the molds were being made. I know you wanted this planter to be a nice wedding gift, do we have enough time to send out another kind of planter with our name on it in addition to your gift? Our 3 new planters all have our name on the bottom, The Lucy, The Wave, and The Impression.
