Terracotta oil pot
Available in two sizes, these frost-resistant, hand-thrown pots can be used to house smaller plants, which look pretty spilling over the rim. Even without plants though, they make fine, stand-alone specimens for the patio or border.
Small - 60cm height x 28cm width
Large - 75cm height x 35cm width
We think these classic, unfussy designs work best in an English garden. Although the inspiration came from Tuscany, the pots have been made in Turkey. They are hand thrown (sometimes from 2 pieces of clay for the larger pots) by Argun and his son who are the 3rd and 4th generation of potters from the Izmir region on the Aegean coast. The clay from this area ages to a lovely patina, as the salts slowly leach to the surface.
Each pot is fired to 1080 degrees C (to make it as frost proof as possible) and has an extra large drainage hole in the base.
Available in more than one size. All sizes sold separately.
