What are Glazed Pots?
A glaze is a glass-like surface, applied as a coating on the outside of our clay pots.
We start with our blank terracotta pots that have been fired once. The pot is dipped in a liquid glaze made of powdered glass forming materials mixed with water. Once the glaze layer is dry, it can be decorated and fired for a second time to 1945 degrees fahrenheit. The glaze melts in the kiln, but unlike most glass it will not melt into a puddle - think glass bottle in a campfire. Glazes are specifically formulated not to run off the pots. Once cooled slowly, we open the kiln to reveal a fresh batch of glazed wares.
Some of our pots are coated in glaze mixtures that melt to reveal a multitude of colors. Other glazes are one color surfaces that make a simple, modern statement.
Our signature hand-painted pots offer an ever-changing assortment of color and design combinations. The process of painting each one is akin to ink brush painting. There is no room for error, and no erasing!
How to Use Glazed Pots
Our glazed ceramic pots can look great anywhere in your home. All types of indoor plants can thrive in our pots as long as you take good care of the plant, using good soil, watering correctly and sizing the pot to the plant well.
