The Anduze form is one of the most recognizable from the French pottery tradition. The form is said to have originated in the 17th century, with inspiration taken from elegant Medici urns, and blended with the more austere forms of the Cevennes region. Traditionally, Anduze pots were designed to hold orange or lemon trees in the estate gardens in southern France.
For my version of the Anduze, I added ornamentation to the rim, which might have also been found on 19th century flowerpots from Wisconsin. (The term "manchette", a French term for a cuff or sleeve, refers to the ruffled rim, which adds elegant ornamentation).The term "manchette", a French term for a cuff or sleeve, refers to the ruffled rim, which adds elegant ornamentation.
