The Terracotta Pot Company Fraska Cretan Pot has been crafted on the island of Crete using the finest local clay, employing age-old techniques and styles that have remained unaltered for almost 4000 years. These frost-proof pots create a magnificent and larger-than-life ambiance in any garden.
The Fraska ribbed terracotta pot, designed in a beehive-style, captures attention effortlessly, whether standing upright and brimming with flowers or placed on its side to infuse the garden with captivating architectural appeal. Terracotta pots and planters are ideal choices for housing various plants, as they create a cool and protective environment that allows for proper breathability, promoting healthy root growth.
Each pot is meticulously shaped on a potter's wheel, followed by kiln firing and a 24-hour 'quenching' process with water. These well-established practices grant the pots exceptional durability, making them frost-resistant down to -20°C and heat-resistant up to 50°C.
A finishing touch involves a clear silicone spray, creating a water-repellent barrier to prevent moisture from infiltrating and damaging the pot.
Being individually handcrafted, each pot boasts subtle variations in shape, thickness, and finish, accentuating its unique charm. As time goes on, mineral salts in the clay naturally emerge to the surface, further enhancing the pot's character. Supplied with a drainage hole.
This pot is covered by Terracotta Pot Company's 50-year frost proof guarantee when registered after purchase.
We include the relevant set of feet for your terracotta pot for FREE with each order. To ensure that the pot remains in good condition and to qualify for the frost proof guarantee it must be mounted on these feet.
