Tips and tricks
Are our pots with holes in the bottom?
Yes, our pots are pierced at the base of our pottery to allow excess water to drain. The hole is about 1 cm in diameter.
The potter's tip

Do you want to put your pot inside?
All you need is a little glazing putty:
  • Make a small ball of plasticine and put it in the hole.
  • Let it dry and it's done.
Now your pottery has no more holes, if you change your mind, nothing could be simpler.
  • Take for example a screwdriver and gently remove the sealant plug.
And now your pottery is pierced again.
Why terracotta?
The terracotta naturally allows the oxygenation of the roots of the plant, moreover The ventilation of the walls of a pottery are essential for the good development of this one.
Our pots encourage the growth of your plants and ensure their optimal development indoors and outdoors.

The earth being a natural matter, it adapts according to the climate, in summer it protects the plant by keeping its freshness and in winter it will protect from frost.
Our paints are designed to allow the pot to continue its oxygenation function.

The potter's tip

We advise you to clean the winter green on your pottery so that it can continue its oxygenation function.
To give your plants every chance to regenerate and develop.
Why is the base of the pottery round?
Our handcrafted pottery is made only by hand on a lathe, it is for this reason that the base of the pottery will always be round, our manufacturing process therefore uses no mold.
How to maintain it?
For the maintenance of your pottery, nothing could be simpler.

  • Take a sponge without a scratching surface.
    We do not recommend scratching the surface, as this may damage the paint.

  • Take a bucket of water and add a little Marseille soap.
    Avoid corrosive products and strippers which will tend to attack your paint.

  • Simply rub your pot with the soft side of the sponge then rinse with water.
    Avoid high pressure tools which will strip the paint.

To sum up, you need a sponge without a scratching surface and a bucket of water with Marseille soap and that's it.

How to protect your raw pottery?
Do you want to protect your raw pottery? Nothing's easier.
To protect the terracotta look of your raw pottery, we recommend using linseed oil.

This oil is natural and creates protection on your pot against the green of winter. This will slightly brown your terracotta appearance by covering it, because the pot will absorb the linseed oil.
  • With a brush, apply thin layers, then allow to dry.

We advise you to repeat this step 2 to 3 times depending on the thickness of your layers.
