Broseley Low Pot

Regular price £28

per 
Unlike our Sorrel and herb pots, Broseley has a much curvier shape. Combine them for an interesting mix of forms, or use Broseley in settings that need softening, such as on a rectangular table. Its tactile mix of crackle glaze and exposed terracotta also works well with the other styles, and gives it the feel of an older, naturally weather-worn piece.

What to fit it with

Broseley comes in four distinct shapes. For this flat one, try planting with similarly low, creeping plants that’ll spill over its edges, like thyme, chamomile and Soleirolia soleirolii (also known as mind-your-own-business). Be sure to use a watertight pot inside it, though, or use life-like flowers and foliage rather than real ones. 

The material

Terracotta is a type of earthenware clay that has a red-orange colour thanks to the amount of iron in it. You can see a little of that colour on the edges where Broseley isn’t glazed. Earthenware is fired at lower temperatures than stoneware or porcelain, which gives it a rougher texture.

The finish

The crackle finish on Broseley is created using two layers of glaze. Because one dries quicker than the other, cracks and pits appear in the surface, giving it more layers of interest and an antique feel. The colour varies from grey-brown to off-white though, it’s mostly a subtle, bluey moss green that sets of green foliage beautifully.

Creating the vase

Also adding to Broseley’s rustic feel is the fact that it’s hand-made. Most of our pottery pieces are cast in a mould, which means they’re largely uniform. But Broseley’s made by hand on a potter’s wheel, so each one is a little individual in terms of size and shape as well as finish. They have those tell-tale ripples in the surface that come from being thrown on a wheel too.
