This white clay is mixed with a percentage of sand which makes it
porous so that the clay can breath . This provides a good growing
environment for the root ball. The white clay is coated with a patina
of colored clay, hand rubbed and then fired in the kin. This gives
the pots a rich mossy "aged" look which enhances its beauty.

to the terra cotta pots. The finish is applied to the wet clay, dried
and then fired to give a durable unique finish.

Pots made of this black clay make excellent environments for orchid
growing. This clay is fired to a higher temperature and is very fine
grained and less porous than terra cotta, therefore, the pots don't
dry out as fast. Also its subtle dark color makes an elegant compliment
to your orchid or other plants.
The example on the right is an orchid paph pot. 32 dollars. The image

True terra-cotta "breathes" allowing water to evaporate from the outside of the pot, keeping the root ball cool in hot weather and acquiring a beautiful patina with time. This rich red clay is a beautiful traditional compliment to your plants.
