About

In God We Trust Ceramics was founded on a simple principle: handmade work should actually be handmade. Family owned and made to order in our Rhode Island studio by mother daughter trio Meg (mom), Kyla (daughter) and Bianca (daughter).


In a world of 'same' and 'like', it's natural to crave something all it's own.  In God We Trust aims to satisfy those cravings, producing unique ceramic housewares for you and yours.  In God We Trust speaks to the American tradition of high quality hand crafted products- a legacy lost in societies recent move towards more cost effective, lower quality, mass produced goods.  While many companies boast 'handmade', their definition of the phrase may not necessarily reflect it's traditional implications.  

At In God We Trust Ceramics, your handmade items are made with our actual hands, as reflected in the surfaces and hand painted variations- absorbing our energy, becoming it's own unique work of art.  No two items are exactly the same, each is uniquely it's own.

Baby Name Nursery Signs

Nursery name sign gray

Our nursery sign offerings are our most popular offering.  There is truly nothing else like it available on the market.  Our baby name signs are created in a variety of color themes, including pink, blue, teal, red, gray, purple, earth tone, chevron print, coral and lime green.  Our baby name signs are completely customized and personalized with your child's name, and available on one of several ribbon colors or silver wire.  

Our baby name signs and baby name decor make excellent alternatives to traditional baby name decor.  Many new parents opt for single decorative letters or personalized wood and fabric baby name signs for their children's nurseries.  While these options are nice, we find them to be a bit out-dated and 'cookie cutter' for our modern style.  Our ceramic baby name signs are completely customized with your child's name and nursery theme/color combinations.  On top of complete personalization, our name signs grow with your child.  

Your child's personalized name or nickname is impressed into a slab of clay.  The boarder is impressed with our signature fabric texture, and the name sign spends a full week or two drying prior to firing.  After bisque firing, the entire nursery sign is painted and wiped away to reveal the intricate textures of the signs boarder and your child's name!  The accent colors will vary with regard to the style that you have chosen.  Your baby name sign will be ready in around 4-6 weeks depending on drying time.  Perfect for your new nursery, or the nursery of a new mom in your life!
