Artisan Terracotta Pottery
Eye of the Day works with top manufacturers to maintain a large inventory of terracotta pottery from Italy, France and Greece continually updated by regular container shipments arriving from Europe.
Vintage and Antique Stone Troughs
While traveling throughout Europe, Eye of the Day has been fortunate to find old stone troughs to bring back for our customers. We carry a variety of sizes and shapes, many of them hand carved from a single block of sandstone, limestone, granite or marble. Some were originally used for animal feeding or water troughs and they now lend themselves to making beautifully aged garden planters and vessels for water features and fountain conversions.
