How We Do It

The ethics shaping your plant pot

THE TRAVEL LOG OF YOUR PLANTPATIO POT

THE ORIGIN

IT ALL STARTS IN THE SOIL

Terracota (from italian terra cotta) literally means baked soil. Your Plantpatio pot is born in Portugal, in lands of clay where minerals are so small (<2µm) that they form a shapeable paste when moistened.

THE SHAPING

ART IN THE HANDS OF THE ARTISAN

Plantpatio pots are hand shaped, one at a time, by skilled artisans. The perfectly pressed and moistened clay is shaped in a circular movement on a pottery wheel, a tool with over 5000 years of history.

BAKING AND DECORATION

THE FOLKLORE THAT BRIGHTENS THE CERAMICS

Once shaped, your Plantpatio pot is baked at 900ºC until it hardens. It is then glazed and again baked, this time at 1150ºC to further harden and seal. The colors and decorative patterns bring us close to the heritage and folklore of its origins, a cultural expression that is 100% authentic.
