"In 1960 Milan, when designer Ninetta Mariani created the Julie Pot, she exclaimed, “I couldn’t add another thing to it!” Today we still agree. This elegant, understated pot keeps the plant in primary focus."
"Let's talk a little bit about 'freckles'. This is what we have named the little visible grains of colour that occasionally appears on our natural raw clay pots.
The reason for the freckles is that we use organic and untreated Italian Galestro clay - the best clay available. The 'freckles' are tiny pieces of calcium or other minerals that are naturally found in the clay.
The freckles are more pronounced on some lots of clay due to variations in soil conditions in Tuscany, Italy. However, it is a characteristic that many of the Italian potters think is a beautiful characteristic. And so do we.
As with us humans - freckles is a sign of summer. The same goes for pots. Most often 'freckle formation' occurs during the summer period when it is ridiculously hot, and the clay dries faster. So, when you see a freckled pot - you know that it is 'summer baby - produced during the hot and sunny season.
It often happens the 'freckles' are loose and fall of and leaves a bit of residue. Luckily, this only happens once. We therefore advise, to soak and wash the pots with a soft brush before using - and you will avoid cleaning up 'fallen freckles'.
We hope you love our pots - freckles or not"
