Hand thrown using Cretan terracotta, these bulbous Ery Glastra Cretan Pots are detailed with indented banding and feature a styled rolled top. Due to its porosity, this clay allows excess water to evaporate, helping the plant roots remain advantageously moist whilst forming a perfect environment for plants to flourish.

The fuel used within the firing process is called ‘pirina’, a by-product of the olive pressing process. When burnt, the pirina generates an intense heat in the kiln fuelled by crushed olive stones and grape pips, reaching temperatures over 1150°C. Incredibly high in mineral content, this robust and durable vessel will slowly release mineral salts, enhancing its distinctive colours with a charming patination.
