Product Description

Cretan Urns

Hand-made on the island of Crete using traditional methods, our range of Cretan Urns are the product of a painstaking production process lasting 5 days. The potters (using wooden wheels powered by their feet), apply the same techniques of the craft used by their Minoan ancestors over 3000 years ago. The process ends with the pieces being fired at the phenomenal temperature of 1150°C, creating the hardiest terracotta pottery there is. The range has been popular with a diverse range of customers, from people with large country gardens to those with modern courtyard settings. One thing the owners of these urns have in common, is that they were looking for a distinctly crafted, premium product

CREATE AN AIR OF GRANDEUR the size and style of the largest urns will easily take the role of an awe-inspiring centre-piece, yet at the same time they can be used on the borders of larger gardens to contribute to a more general feeling of grandeur

FROST GUARANTEED the clay used in production is carefully selected and fired to the incredible temperature of 1150°C, making the pottery extremely hardy. This means that each urn is frost guaranteed

PRODUCED BY HAND remember, the urns are painstakingly produced by skilled potters who work very much within a cottage industry. No two urns are the same, and the dimensions we have provided can not be defined as precise. There are slight variations in size from one urn to another

FINISH the pottery has an unglazed, natural finish that shows its beautiful, distinctive variations in colour

USAGE NOTE the urns should not be filled with soil because their bulbous design makes them susceptible to expansion caused by frost
