Home Plate

There are sights and adventures to be found out on the road, but it's home that always calls you back. Artist Maura Jacobsen captures that duality in her inviting, handmade trays. She gives earthenware clay the imprint from vintage license plates she has collected—your choice of all fifty states is available, to celebrate your local pride, to remember a special place, or to honor someone as they start out on a new road in life. After shaping her trays, Jacobsen uses non-toxic glazes of earthy red and sky blue, like a scenic vista that you can always keep with you. Handmade in Cheyenne, Wyoming.

Exclusively for UncommonGoods

Maura Jacobsen was raised in Denver, Colorado and headed north to Wyoming in 1989 where she received a degree in Art from the University of Wyoming and she never looked back. Her business started in a three room cabin, in a town of 200, with a dog named Homer. The adventure has made her who she is today.

Over the years she has slowly grown her pottery business from unique handmade pieces to promoting art throughout the state of Wyoming as an artist on the Artist Roster. Inspired by images from life, she hopes to spark a connection and a conversation with the dishes she creates.

      Comments about LICENSE PLATE PLATTER:

      It's smaller than I expected, but just as lovely as pictured. We ordered the Wyoming one, and it's really cool because there is a raised image of a cowboy on the license plate, and not just printed letters and numbers.

      Service and delivery comments:

      It arrived cracked the first time, but I contacted customer service, and the replacement arrived soon.

        The platter is beautiful... it comes exactly as it looks colorwise, regardless of the license plate colors. I did think it would be a bit longer...however, I didn't read the dimensions, I was basing that all off looks. Anyhow, I am sure my mom is gonna love it!

              Purchased this as a house warming gift for a friend moving to a new state. They love, love, loved it!! Only con is that it does seem a little fragile so I would not use it everyday and it takes a little fore thought because it takes weeks to receive after placing the order, but, I think the wait was well worth it for something so unique and personal!

                  I purchased two of these unique platters, one for my son and one for my brother. They both really like them. They've been used as a platter for fruit and as a serving tray for parties. They are great conversation pieces and they give us a great opportunity to start a conversation about our favorite state! A fun piece to have around.
