A closer look at Broseley

Broseley’s tactile finish – with crackle glaze and exposed terracotta – means it’s easy to combine with our other pots for an eclectic mix of forms and textures. If you want a more unified feel though, there are two other shapes in the Broseley collection, giving you an easy arrangement for patios and tables. This large size is also just as happy inside and left empty as a decorative piece.

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.

What to fill it with

If you don’t want to leave this pot empty, try planting it with something that’ll creep over the edges, like a trailing verbena or pelargonium. Because it curves inwards at the top, Broseley can look a little unbalanced with something too tall inside. And the slightly wild feel of these plants will also complement the aged style of the pot.

Just so you know

Our larger vases are heavy. Half-full of water, even heavier. So we recommend arranging your flowers in situ rather than trying to carry the vase when it’s full.
