An ode to ancient Greek pottery shapes, our Aegina Burnt Terracotta Vases are made from over firing the terracotta until it turns black. They are not painted and each piece will have subtle differences in finish - variations are part of the handmade appeal. They look beautiful alone, or with the addition of dried flowers. *Unglazed terracotta is porous and should not be used to hold water.

Burnt Terracotta Pottery - A Testament to Age Old Techniques
Our burnt black terracotta pieces our hand made in India using traditional pottery wheels and wood fired kilns. Their characteristic hazy matte-black hue is created by double firing the terracotta. In the second firing, the primitive fire kiln is covered with sand, causing smoke to transform classic orange terracotta to coveted moody black.
