The olive tree has been cultivated around the Mediterranean for thousands of years and from early times terracotta jars & vases have been indispensable for the transport & storage of olives and olive oil.
Artisan potters continue to make the same shapes and designs to this day. Here you will find beautiful examples, glazed and antiqued, using the traditional Anduze glazes or left in their natural terracotta. In particular the rope coil pots are very simple but naturally beautiful, showing the careful hand work in making the perfect coil around the pot mould.
These authentic pots look glorious in the corners of a courtyard or terrace, planted with geraniums or other colourful summer trailing flowering plants.
