The Tuscan Medici urn is said to be the inspiration of the French potter who created the Anduze vase in the 1600s. He captured the elegant silhouette and proportions perfectly. The outcome was a refined balance between Italian expressiveness and French restraint.

Historically, these vases were used to decorate the gardens of estates in the South of France, and they are now sought after worldwide. Anduze vases are adorned with floral garlands and classical figures. The clay badge or 'macaron' on each vase identifies the potter's atelier.

Exclusively handmade to order - there is no compromise on quality.  The time, craftsmanship, care and quality of material that is invested into each and every piece is inspiring. Our bespoke planters will make a big impact in any garden or interior and bring a touch of European style to the space.

Rope thrown anduze urns made to order French garden pots

Large urns are made with the rope-thrown method. This skillful process takes a potter several weeks, followed by months of drying time prior to firing in the kiln. Ropes are wrapped around a timber frame and clay is 'thrown' on to the shape. As the pots dry, the rope is carefully removed leaving behind a pretty pattern on the inside. The garlands and badges are carefully added to the exterior as the finishing touch prior to firing.

Pots can be ordered in any quantity, size and finish. They are available in a broad range of matte and gloss glazes and with a distressed (antique) treatment if desired. If you live in an area prone to frost and freezing, water repellent treatment is recommended. Never plant directly into the pot - a plastic liner is provided and must be used to minimize the amount of moisture and pressure on the pot. If you live in an area that experiences frost and freezing, then the pots should be moved to a sheltered spot during the colder months to prevent frost damage. This is true for all terracotta planters.

Anduze urns handmade to order

When comparing our range with other Anduze Pottery makers, we advise our clients to ask two simple questions. Firstly, are the products handmade or are they machine made? A giveaway is vertical join marks which are unsightly and a result of the machine molding process. Secondly, how much material is used how does the weight of the pottery compare to genuine handmade pieces? Light weight pieces are prone to cracking as they are of inferior quality.

Our pottery is the choice of the Château of Versailles, Château de Mons, Château de Flaugergues and the Manor of the Garde. They also line the streets of Nice on the Côte d'Azur and the exquisite village of Montpellier. These historic landmarks and discerning clients demand the best quality.

Antica finish Anduze urns bespoke French garden planters

Flowering shrubs, herbs, bulbs and topiary look fabulous planted in our urns. Traditionally they were planted with citrus and then put in an orangery over winter to protect both the fruit trees and the pots. We love combining different sizes and complementary colors to create a stunning focal point.
