  • Terracotta tulip pot

Terracotta tulip pot



  • Height: 50cm
  • Bulge width: 37cm
  • Rim width: 30cm

Please note that due to these pots being hand made, all measurements are approximate and can vary slightly.

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 them as frost resistant as possible. However we would always suggest that, just to be extra safe, in the very cold months that you move empty or full pots into a sheltered spot.
These terracotta pots are hand thrown and will vary slightly in height and diameter from batch to batch.

This pot has an extra large drainage hole the base.
