Lavender symbolizes devotion and loyalty and is valued for its many medicinal, cosmetic, culinary and household uses. This design was created to celebrate the love for lavender that we all share, showcasing the delicate stems and tiny purple flowers.
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.

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 Lavender Birdbath is beautiful with sprays of lavender on the base, and it is very well made. I set it up in my backyard by the bird feeders, and the birds sit on the edge to drink water and get in the water to take a bath. Even my cat puts his two front paws on the edge and takes a drink. Everyone is enjoying the birdbath.
Thank you for making a beautiful, and functional, birdbath.
We purchased our original Burley Lavender Birdbath Set from a local garden center. We loved it and were heartbroken when an animal broke it. I was so happy to find that I could order a new set directly from Burley Pottery. It arrived in perfect shape in a very prompt manner. Thank you
I had to replace my birdbath of 16 years. I did a thorough search on many, many sites. Burley Pottery is the one I kept coming back to. I'm glad I did. The handpainted Lavender Birdbath is not only beautiful, but it is very well made. It fits well into my landscaping and I would expect it to last at least as long as my last one.
The bird bath is very nice, however it was delivered with several material voids in the bird bath top. I notified the manufacturer but did not get a response.
Hello Craig, I am sorry to hear you are disappointed with your top. I have not received any communication from you about this issue until now. Our products are not always perfect but we do try to make them as best as we can, pottery itself is always flawed in someway when it comes to handmade pieces. I would be more than happy to give you a partial refund for the quality difference in your top if you would like. You have my email from our last communication before we shipped your order out.
