Sage comes in a lovely smoke grey shade that’s just right with greenery. The finish is about contrasting textures: glossy and matte, smooth and rough. This pot’s designed to pair easily with our other terracotta planters, 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. Sage’s unglazed base has a mottled texture, whereas the rest is glossy – although you can still see the brush marks where the glaze was applied.
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.
