Classic Italian Terracotta
The Classic line of Italian pottery showcases traditional designs most typically associated with Italian terracotta garden pots. Highlighted by recognizable garlands, rosettes and rims, classic terracotta outdoor planters have a place in any traditional or modern garden style.
Ornate Italian Terracotta
Details from the pre-Roman Etruscan period are evident in the Ornate Pottery line from Terrecotte San Rocco. Like all terracotta from Terrecotte San Rocco, this Italian pottery is crafted from the highest quality clay, fired at high temperature and it is frost resistant.
Eye of the Day imports handmade Greek terracotta pottery from a small manufacturer on the island of Crete. Greek pottery is produced by ancient techniques, using hand and foot-turned potter’s wheels to shape the pots. Their unique color is the result of being fired in kilns fueled by olive pits. We regularly stock antique Greek oil jars, and though new Greek pots add to any garden or home, an antique terracotta pot with a look that can only be achieved with age, adds an elegant touch to Mediterranean garden decor.
Gladding McBean terracotta pottery, produced in Lincoln, California is the most widely collected glazed American pottery in the United States. Founded in 1885, Gladding McBean offers a wide variety of exquisite colorful glazes and an extensive variety of shapes including variations of the classic Oil Jar.
