Custom pieces for Historic Sites and Societies
I do work with historical sites and societies to create unique pieces.
Custom house plates require a photo or drawing of the building. The photo or drawing will be used to create the design on the sgraffito plate. Round (7 1/2" and 10 1/2") and Oval (approx 12" x 9") plates are available. Photos - there can be no large obstructions such as cars or signs, but objects such as telephone poles that offer minimal obstruction are acceptable. Trees and flowers may be included on the plate as well and should appear in the photo/drawing if they are to be included on the plate.
