    Product Details

    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

    Care Instructions

    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.

    It’s a beautiful addition to our garden.

    Beautiful Work

    The bird bath we ordered is beautiful! The color is perfect and the quality is A+. We had the item shipped from Ohio to San Diego and it arrived in perfect condition. Thank you!

    Just Beautiful!

    Items (top and bottom, under separate cover) arrived quickly, they were both securely packaged, and in great condition. They fit together well, and securely. It’s immediately obvious that high quality craftsmanship and care was taken to create these items. The clay is without flaw, nice and heavily poured, so it will be sturdy for years to come. The glaze is even, smooth and clean, in appearance, too. Looking forward to many, many years of this beauty adorning our perennial bed, and enticing the birds to either drink, bathe, or both!

    Always a great product

    I love this one, great color, nice deep bowl. Always excellently made. I don’t think I’ll buy bird baths from anyone else.

    I haven’t seen it yet, because you sent my bird bath to the wrong address.

    It was sent to the billing address not shipping address. I am waiting for a label (which April promised she would send on the 26th) so I can forward it on to the true recipient. Please expedite this.
