The striking shape and classic good looks, makes them statement pieces that will create beautiful focal points for either the garden or patio. Available in two sizes.

They are hand th rown (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 Aege an coast. The clay from this area ages to a lovely patina, as the salts slowly l each 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.
