The Making Process

The UK's finest collection of terracotta pots, oil jars and urns.

Made by Hand

Every single pot is handmade by experienced craftsmen, whose skill has been passed down the generations

Out to Dry

The pots are then left out to dry under the Cretan sun

The Kiln

The pots are then carefully placed in to the kiln

Fires are Lit

The fires are lit and burn for six hours, reaching temperatures of 1150c. Fuelled by wood and residue from olive and grape harvests (rather than more prevalent gas-fired kilns), it is a highly environmentally-friendly procedure that gives our pots their attractive varying soft shades of tan that change with the light.
