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.

To keep your pot in tip-top condition please read our ‘Assembly and care instructions’ PDF for more detailed advice.

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.

Please note: any white specks in the terracotta are lime granules, which occur naturally in raw Turkish clay. Occasionally when a pot is fired, the clay around them can split out a little, but this does not compromise the strength of the pot in any way. The presence of lime helps to bind the clay and ultimately makes for a stronger pot.

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