Ovoid crocks of the early 19th century were some of the most beautiful forms made by early American potters. As pottery production increased to meet the needs of a growing population, later versions of the crock form were made with straight sides, which offered more efficiency in the kiln.

This has always been one of my favorite early American forms, and in borrowing the form for flowerpots, I've found that the shape and proportions are a good choice for folks who want the convenience of dropping in a plant potted in a plastic grower's pot. This one is sized to accommodate a 6" to 6.5" grower's pot. The sturdy lug handles, common on the utilitarian crocks of the 19th century, come in handy for moving this pot once it is planted.
