Since its founding in 1949 by Edward Marshall Boehm and his wife, Boehm Porcelain Studio has carefully handcrafted individual pieces of porcelain sculptures using traditional methods derived from the ancient Chinese process of porcelain making. Highly skilled and trained artisans and craftsmen complete a series of intricate procedures to create a finished product held to the highest standards of artistic detailing and quality craftsmanship. His first workshop was on Stokes Avenue, and he later moved to Fairfacts Avenue. Following Mr. Boehm’s death in 1969, his wife Helen took over the company.

Each porcelain sculpture begins its life on paper, in sketch form. The sculptor then determines its size, structure, and floral complements and shapes a rough model in modeling clay. Once the sculpture is finalized, mold makers proceed to carefully cut it into parts that complement each other. These processes can last weeks.

Boehm Porcelain Studio is recognized for creating pure porcelain sculpture from the whitest and purest clays. After being fired at approximately 2,400 degrees Fahrenheit for at least one full day, sculptures then remain in the kiln for two days until properly cooled. Pieces that successfully make it through the initial firing are refined to a smooth surface and hallmarks are applied to the bottom of the base, ready for the painter's brush, with re-firings in the kiln between applications of various colors. These colors are extracted in rock form from the earth and are then pulverized. Each art piece is fired at least three times. When finished, each piece is carefully examined against the original design and mold, in order to ensure that every detail is consistent and represents flawless craftsmanship.

Hello, I am inquiring on selling my large white porcelain Boehm eagle statue. It has been in the family for decades. It is about 16 inches tall. I have only seen this on presidential bicentennial plates. Would you be interested in purchasing it or know someone that may be?
