We at Rookwood Pottery love having the opportunity to team up with passionate people and businesses to create custom, timeless works of art using beautiful ceramics, tile, and commemorative projects.
In 2016, Boca Restaurant approached us on a creative quest — to design custom dinnerware that embraces tradition, commemorates milestones, and celebrates new journeys.
When we teamed up with Boca, they were approaching their 15th anniversary and wanted to celebrate the occasion with a new dinnerware line to present their beautiful cuisine. After months of form and glaze development, we created a beautiful dinnerware series handcrafted just for them.
Boca was able to customize their dinnerware with one-of-a-kind glazes and handcrafted combinations to make their wares as stunning as the meals that grace them.

The original plate design came from the Rookwood archives and was originally made in the time of the roaring 1920’s. These timeless dinnerware creations translate seamlessly to today’s dining experience, which Boca has artfully perfected.
Once the prototypes are completed, we bring each piece to life through the work of our expert artisans. For each project we use thorough research, testing, and critique to push our product forward to create the best results for each commemorative client.
Working with Boca is such a pleasure. We share the same devotion to our craft and appreciate our mutual dedication to timelessness, good design, handcrafted quality, and finesse.
