Installing ceiling mount shower head to sloped ceiling

Does anyone know where to buy escutcheons for ceiling mount shower heads that will work for a sloped ceiling? Or, does anyone have any ideas on how to do this, other than building a boxed mount onto the ceiling itself?

I've never had occasion to do one in a sloped ceiling, so my default response is to try your local plumbing supply house.
Sorry I couldn't be more specific.

Just don't use an escutcheon. After you install the drop pipe, it may be necessary to touchup sheetrock mud and paint around the hole.

My response is based on the fact that vaulted ceilings come with infinite number of incremental difference of degree. There wouldn't be a "1 size fits all angled ceiling escutcheon."

What type of finish are you looking at?

Thanks - that's likely what I'll do.
