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.

Have just taken delivery of one in each size and they really do have a certain wow factor; properly substantial and very attractive. Very pleased. By the way - anyone thinking of painting something like this really should think again, or buy a plastic one instead!

Fabulous shape and size!

Great shape pots! I have 2 of the smaller ones, which I'm currently panting with masonry paint to make them a focal point. I shall be planting a purple salvia in each.

I have 2 of these which I've painted with masonry paint. They look stunning and I'm planting in salvia to match the purple colour I've painted them.

super pots

Just bought another 2 of these large containers. Now have 4 in all. Good looking and super height for people with back problems. These are very nice with plants and also small roses in. Much cheaper than any other site for the same size and quality. Also delivery excellent.

These oil pots have to be the best value available from anywhere. They are even better than described in the picture. Have been planning a Mediterranean garden theme with my daughter and we suspected oil pots would be too expensive, but hey, I was wrong, these pots fit the bill in design and cost. Very pleased with this purchase and highly recommend the seller. I was also impressed with the speed of the delivery and the kind delivery person who helped carry them into my house. A big thank you.

If growing a fern in one of these pots on a balcony does the whole pot need to be filled with compost? Or should it be partially filled with something else with the compost on top?

fannyfanackapan

Hello there You can fill the whole pot up with soil, but the fern won't need that depth of soil and it will make the container very heavy. I have used scrunched up polystyrene - sort of thing that small bedding plants come in which will keep the weight down, but still allow good drainage.

What are the measurements of the openings at the top of the pots, please? I assume the widths given are across the widest point and as I might like to plant them up it would help to know what width of pot would fit. Thanks!

hedgepig

Hello, You are quite right in thinking that the width given on our site for the two pots refers to a measurement taken at their their widest point. Both of these pots however have the same sized opening at the top, with an internal diameter of 13.5cm. I hope this helps,
