Obviously inspired by the pine cone shape, the geometric like pattern is perfect for wonderful moss and patination. Our Aged Terra Cotta collection comes with some natural moss when you purchase it. Once our terra cotta pots are planted, the natural aging process will evolve, creating a varied surface texture of vibrant mosses along with naturally occurring colors that evoke the classic look of antiquity we so revere. Clay gathered from the lagoon. Tread upon by foot, kneaded by hand. Thrown on the wheel, feet thrashing, fingers shaping. Fired with wood, aged with care in the misty greenhouse, over time, until there appears on each and every one the lush, lusty green of the beloved moss.
