Hand thrown terracotta pots with thousands of years of character.

A statement in its own right.

For trees, shrubs, perennials and bulbs.

Your unique piece of history.

The elements in harmony.

We have a true love for the heritage and craft of handmade Cretan pottery. Today, our artisans blend clay from the ground and using ancient techniques, shape and fire it into classical and contemporary pots and pithoi. Each one develops its own natural patina and, as you’ll see, is uniquely beautiful.

Our pots feature in some outstanding places, from informal cottage gardens, to the magnificent grounds of Highgrove House.

Artisan finds

On our travels, beautiful things will often catch our eye. We’re particularly drawn to items made by skilled hands, using natural materials.
