Simona Pot & Saucer - Grey
Beautifully handcrafted in Italy, this unfinished grey-hued pot and saucer is part of Bergs Potter’s historic Simona Collection. The signature design of the Simona collection is a fine vertical line detailing along the sides of the pot. Each pot has also been meticulously crafted by hand, rendering each piece unique.
The clay used in the Simona Collection is fired at very high temperatures, giving the pots a natural durability As this pot is unfinished, water will temporarily darken the clay when watered. This helps keep plants hydrated, and the pot will dry back to its original colour.
The Simona is a romantic Parisian pot that has graced countless French homes since its popularity in the mid-nineteenth century. It was first created in Paris’ Latin Quarter, but its original creator remains a mystery. Years ago, it was spotted in the midst of a flea market in Montmartre and brought back to life by Bergs Potter’s Tuscan potters.
Please note: as each piece is handcrafted, there will be natural variations in tone, texture, and finishing between pots. Also, as terracotta/clay is porous, water will seep to the exterior of the pot, however this is a normal and desired feature in unfinished terracotta pottery! The water spots will dry as it evaporates.
