The shows website says ... Alan wanted to get some stylish terracotta pots and urns for Maggie’s garden to really give a look of the mediterranean. The Terracotta Pot Company has the most beautiful range of Cretan terracotta pots and urns. Alan selected 3 large urns to place in the garden unplanted as a feature piece and they definitely looked show stopping.
The pots are made slowly with the larger ones taking several days to complete. The potter carefully adds height to the walls of each pot, then letting it dry, so allowing the finished height (up to a metre and beyond!) to be attained without the pot collapsing under its own weight!
