Melvin Rowe


Since the early 80s I have created religious vessels, including stoneware altar sets, pottery chalices and cruets. . Throughout that time, I have consulted with many cleargymen of all demoninations as to the particulars of their various requirements. This page reresents only items I currently have in stock. I can also produce matching cruets and ciboriums, finger bowls, pitchers, candle holders, etc.

I have shipped my chalices and patens to Austria, Ireland,, Norway, Switzerland, South Africa and even South America and probably about every state in the Union.

I also create custom sets. To email an inquiry or request larger photos of sets on this page,
EMAIL Melvin Rowe or call Mon-Fri 10 AM - 5 PM Eastern at 502-896-0877
