This pot is made of earthenware, which has a rustic simplicity that really suits the Corinium pieces. Terracotta and earthenware are the same material. But ‘earthenware’ is used for an object that is made on a potter’s wheel, or is glazed – or both – like tableware. Whereas ‘terracotta’ is used to describe one that’s not made on a potter’s wheel, like a sculpture. Or for unglazed items like flower pots or roof tiles.
To make it look much older than it really is, it’s been given a crackle glaze. And around the rim of the jar, the glaze has ‘come away’ as though it’s fallen off through use. The base is painted dark brown, like the damp-course on the outside of a old stone cottage.
For a house to feel like a home, it needs things that are purely decorative. Like a picture or a sculpture that will add life and texture to a room. Our ornaments have lots of different finishes, so they look like they’ve been collected over time, and are all part of your unique story.
Other ways to use it
This pot is purely decorative and not watertight. But if you do want to use it for fresh flowers or seasonal twigs, you can place a cut-off empty plastic bottle inside and use that to hold the water .

The joy of sitting in
Ways to rekindle the joy of an evening in, from the practical (choosing the perfect seat), to the fun (setting up a home cinema) to the emotive (why ‘hygge’ is still relevant).
