Why Clay Pot?
Choosing the perfect pot to which we house our plants in is just as important as choosing the right plant for our home and our lifestyle. Factors such as function, style, and affordability are just a few of the reasons why we decided to use pots made from terracotta, which means “baked earth”.
Terracotta is made from natural earth instead of synthetic or petroleum-based materials. This means they are good for your plants, good for your health and good for the surrounding environment. Clay mimics the plant’s natural habitat and, with their breathable yet sturdy walls, they help aerate the roots while providing insulation from any sudden temperature shifts. As it ages, the clay also develops characteristics that are beautiful and unique depending on the elements it has been exposed to.
At Gracious Plants we have our own signature range of hand-crafted terracotta pots. Each beautiful pot is expertly painted and sealed by our local skilled artisans. We have specially curated a range of colours that would harmonise with any home decor, whether it be modern minimalist or rustic charm. Each pot is it’s own unique piece of art and would make a wonderful feature to be admired for years to come.
