#6 English Work Pot, Red Terracotta
Please select all options.
These are the simple, unadorned work pots that were found in Victorian era greehouses and conservatories. In their day, they were as ubiquitous as a plastic grower's pot today, and potters threw (and sold) them by the ton.
I'm making these in 6 different sizes, (#1/2, #1, #2, #3, #4, #6) denoted by the lbs. of wet clay I use for throwing them. You can read more about English horticultural terracotta here.
