Basil’s a little more decorative than traditional plant pots, with dimples around its neck and a smudgy, cream-coloured finish. It’s designed to pair easily with our other terracotta pots, indoors or out, but you could just as easily use one on its own.
Design & engineering
This pot’s made by casting terracotta in a mould. Each one will be a little different, both in terms of the slightly wobbly shape, and the finish – just as if you’d collected them over time. The glaze is matte, rough to the touch and gently distressed.
Where we see it
Though it’s resistant to a little weather, this pot isn’t completely frost-proof. We mostly use it inside for herbs and bulbs, taking it outside in the warmer months. It also doesn’t have a drainage hole, so it’s best to keep the plant in a second pot that can be lifted out for watering.
