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:

      I gave a NJ platter to my sister-in-law for her birthday. She loves it, especially knowing that it was produced specifically for her! Our far-flung family gathers at the Jersey shore every summer, so the platter has special significance.

        Comments about LICENSE PLATE PLATTER:

        I had a difficult wedding gift to buy for my best friend who is very streamlined and understated in her design taste but who married a restraunteur/foodie who loves to entertain and whose style is bold Texas! I loved giving them something handmade that could be displayed or just kept in a cabinet and used for fun oer d'oeuvres. I paired this with a super classy, golden glass-blown wine bottle stopper shapped like a long horn! Also - I loved the platter so much I am ordering one for ME!

          Comments about LICENSE PLATE PLATTER:

          When I saw this product I immediately thought of ten people who I'd love to buy one for. I actually bought two, one for a friend, who is originally from Michigan, and one for myself. I plan to bring mine to my vacation home in another state for that "little touch of home".

          When my friend opened up the package and saw what I had given him there were tears! I can't explain it, it's a reminder of home when you're a "transplant" from another state and away from family. I absolutely LOVE this platter! Thank you for offering it!

                License plate arrived well packed in the box and without any chips or broken pieces. The item was more beautiful and unique in person than showed on the website. Wonderful colors. Hope maybe in the future that two states can be used, instead of just one. Can't wait to see the look on my father's face when he opens his gift!

                  Letters designating the state were up in corner/side and not as prominent as I had imagined. Also, platter was made from "truck" license plate impression and since I've never owned a truck it didn't sit right with me. I was hesitant to order this but went with my gut and am really sorry I did at that expense. Was going to give it to my sister but she wouldn't care for it either. Oh well....

                    This is a very thoughtful gift for a friend who has made a new home in a state other than the one they grew up in. It's beautiful and very high quality. As soon as I received it, I ordered a second one for another friend.
