Welcome to the UK’s finest collection of Cretan terracotta pots, oil jars and urns (large or small) born of the Aegean island of Crete. We are The Cretan Pot Shop and we specialise in beautiful and unique ceramics that epitomise Mediterranean and Greek culture. Whether you are looking for a huge statement pot like the Beehive Megalos, or maybe something smaller, you can be sure that your new pot will bring joy to your garden.
View our large range of pots here and see how they can make a huge impact in your garden.
Our pots are made from natural, robust, environmentally friendly frost-proof terracotta.
All of our pots and urns are hand-thrown by the award winning potter Manolis Volyrakis and his family team. They are then fired in a traditional wood-burning kiln (rather than the more prevalent gas-fired kilns now found in Crete) in order to give our pots their attractive varying soft shades of tan that changes with the light. All our pots are individually unique.
