Beautifully handcrafted in Italy, this unfinished rose-hued pot and saucer is part of Bergs Potter’s charming Helena Collection. The signature design of the Helena collection is a scalloped clay pearling along the top edge of the pot. Each pot has also been meticulously crafted by hand, rendering each piece unique.
The clay used in the Helena Collection is fired at very high temperatures, giving the pots a natural durability As this pot is unfinished, water will temporarily darken the clay when watered. This helps keep plants hydrated, and the pot will dry back to its original colour.
The Helena Collection is inspired by the small town of Di Bolenza, just north of Rome. Di Bolenza was once known for its potters and the home of Robert Rosso. Taking inspiration from ancient Greek designs, Rosso created the Helena Pot, a popular design throughout the 1800s. Tuscan potters are again crafting the Helena design, thanks to a recent rebirth of interest in classic design.
Please note: as each piece is handcrafted, there will be natural variations in tone, texture, and finishing between pots. Also, as terracotta/clay is porous, water will seep to the exterior of the pot, however this is a normal and desired feature in unfinished terracotta pottery! The water spots will dry as it evaporates.
