The Terracotta Pot Company Pithos 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 Pithos represents a traditional Terracotta pot, elevated by the addition of handles on its sides. This design element, initially intended for storing wines and oils, enhances the pot's overall aesthetic appeal.
Terracotta pots and planters are the perfect habitat for plants, providing a cool, protective, and breathable environment that fosters healthy root growth.
To enhance their performance, all our Terracotta pots are treated with a safe and inert silicon-based coating. This coating dries completely clear, leaving the pots unaffected by any coloration. Moreover, it acts as a water repellent, safeguarding the pots against damage during the cold winter months.
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.
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.
Please note that due to their handmade nature, all measurements are approximate and may vary slightly.
