Anduze is a small town in southern France, at the foot of the Cevennes, on the river Gardon. Pottery has been made here for many centuries, and the classic Anduze vase dates from around 1782, when the famous potter Jean Gautier first created the ornamental garden pot we now know and love. The classic Anduze vase comes in a range of different finishes and traditional glazed colours -
Glazed finish which is available in the traditional and original glazed colours
Antica finish which is a beautiful patina finish creating an authentic look of the antique vases you can still find from time to time in chateaux gardens around France.
Aged finish which is a little less refined but equally beautiful recreating the more rustic weather worn vases
Cerusï¿½ finish which is a traditional whitened clay glaze over the red terracotta.
All the terracotta urns and vases are fired to over 1000°C and slowly cooled down after firing to create hard wearing glaze finishes.
Whilst these vases are heavy and robust, we do not advise they should be left outside during cold winter periods where frost and sub-zero temperatures may damage the glaze surfaces.
Always remove pots to a sheltered place to over winter.
Make sure the vases have plenty of gravel and stones in the bottom as good drainage is essential for healthy plant growth.
