Terracotta oil pot

large - 35cm £69.99
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, they make fine standalone specimens for the patio or border.

Though inspired by the terraces of Tuscany, the pots are thrown in Turkey by Argun and his son, 3rd and 4th generation potters from the Izmir region on the Aegean coast. Made using local clay, the pots will age to a wonderful patina as the salts slowly leach to the surface.

Each pot is fired to 1080 degrees C to make it as frost resistant as possible; however we would always suggest moving empty or full pots into a sheltered spot in the colder months.

As they are individually thrown by hand, the pots will vary slightly in height and diameter from batch to batch, so please be aware the measurements below are approximate. Supplied with an extra-large drainage hole in the base.

Small - Ø25cm x H60cm (weight 8.5kg)
Large - Ø35cm x H75cm (weight 17kg)
