Bakeman Ceramic Art Custom Creations
PLEASE EXCUSE THE MESS SOME OF MY PAGES ARE IN AS THE SITE IS BEING UPDATED.
I specialize in these custom, one-of-a-kind ceramic items:
- Pet memorials that can be used as burial grave markers, headstones, and tombstones. They can be designed to vertically stake into the ground, lay flat, or be fastened to a post.
- Address plaques / signs that can be hung from a lamp post crossbar, mounted on a wall, or displayed on a yard stake.
- Family name plaques for display in similar ways as the address plaques.
- Circa & built historic plaques / signs that are displayed to indicate what year a house or building was built or a business established.
- Any custom made plaque or sign of your design. Just contact me with your idea. If you want a color not seen in my listings just make a special request and I will try to accommodate you. Look at the "Custom Design Gallery" page to see some examples.
I individually handcraft and personalize each item to your specifications. The pet memorials will be a tribute to your beloved companion and the house number and circa plaques a distinctive addition to your home decor. These items are designed to be permanent in all outdoor conditions and the colors will not fade over time.

About My Business:
I established my ceramics business in 2008 after retiring from a 33 year teaching career as an art instructor. I had always wanted to design and create ceramic pet memorials for all the pets we had over the years and at the urging of a friend, an eBay aficionado, decided to sell these same custom made memorials online. Since that time in 2008 I have sold over 3000 items through various online selling sites before establishing this site. More recently I have added custom made house number and circa year plaques to my offerings. The business is not large scale. I work in one corner of my basement and fire the pieces in a kiln in my garage. My goal is to provide you, the customer, with the best service possible, timely communications, and quality work for what I feel is a very reasonable price.
Please browse my site to see what I offer and check out the Custom Design Gallery page to view various pieces featuring special custom designs and color requests made for past customers. If you are interested in making a purchase click on the link for Etsy.com which is provided on most pages of this website.
