Glazed Pottery | Earthenware

Vintage Pottery | Glazed Earthenware

These lovely examples of Turkish pottery spent the first part of their lives serving as storage containers for water, wine, or olive oil. You'll notice many of them have a "conical" shape, with a narrow base, graduating up to a wider middle, and then a tiny "waist" at the top of the pot.  This was to facilitate burying the base of the pot in the ground, which would then provide a natural method of cooling to whatever was placed inside them.  Each is hand-thrown, and many also feature decorative internal and/or external glazes in deep shades of green, blue, or brown.  Varying in age from 30-75 years old, every piece of our pottery has a distinctive character that will add a Mediterranean flair to your home.
