Dear Nancy,

I heard from my sister that my nephew and niece reported that they “nearly cried” when they opened their gift and saw your plate commemorating Avelino’s birth and including the representation of Beau!  Thank you.  I’ve always had enthusiastic responses to your plates, but I think this is the first time one has drawn tears!

Thank you!  I know that they will be thrilled with it.  Now you can add another animal to your repetoire!

I am so thankful that you have been around for all of our weddings and births and anniversaries and other celebrations.  Your plates are truly unique and made with love!


Dear Nancy,

Your beautiful plate for William was a huge success at his birthday party. I had forgotten how lovely they were and I was so thrilled I thought of you when I was thinking of a lasting gift.

Thank you also for wrapping it so beautifully, your attention to detail is obvious.

Thank you, Nancy, for the beautiful plate, We love it.

Personalized Congressman Plates from Bodmer's Store in Frederick, MD

Nancy Bodmer gave her daughter the middle name Clay.

That passion has taken her work to Capitol Hill.

She was recently commissioned to make plates for the 42 new members of the House of Representatives, plus the seven committee chairs.

Though Bodmer said she has made “everything but the kitchen sink,” commemorative plates have become her specialty. Her first one was 36 years ago for the birth of her daughter. She said she likes the element of family and history that the plates encompass. The options for designs and messages are also appealing to Bodmer.

“There’s a possibility I made a plate for a future president of the United States,” Bodmer said. “They’ve got to start somewhere.”

The excerpts above were taken from the full article on the Frederick News Post website. You can read it here.

I treasure our birth plates, which hang proudly in our dining room.


Absolutely beautiful pieces that you want to keep forever and ever… Makes me smile every time I walk into my living room to see my lovely piece of Bodmer pottery.


My cousin and her husband received the plate and LOVED it!! Her whole family thought it was beautiful and such a wonderful keepsake to have and cherish. My cousin enjoys painting as a hobby so she especially appreciated all the work you put into creating the plate.

I did watch your video and enjoyed learning about your process and inspiration. I definitely feel connected to you even though we’ve never met in person. And I love that your work is not only in my home but also in the homes of my close friends and family. :)

Take care!
