A closer look at Broseley

The small Broseley pot’s wavy-edged shape is quite different to the other two in this collection, but they all sit together, giving you an easy arrangement for a patio or garden tabletop. Their tactile mix of crackle glaze and exposed terracotta also works well with the other pot styles in our collection, and gives Broseley the feel of an older, naturally weather-worn 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

Broseley comes in three distinct shapes. Not very big, but not tiny either, this fluted-edge one is ideal for all sorts of plants, from ferns and orchids to herbs or a trio of bulbs. It’s a good size for sitting on a tabletop too, in which case plant it up with low, creeping plants like thyme that won’t be in your eyeline.

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.
