Clay pearling along Helena’s top edge gives this pot a soft and classic look. North of Rome lies the small town of Di Bolzena, a place once filled with potters and the home of Robert Rosso. Taking inspiration from ancient Greek Designs, Rosso created the Helena Pot, which was popular throughout the 1800s. There’s been a recent rebirth of interest in the classic design, and Tuscan potters are now making it again.
If your plants could speak, they would tell you that there’s nothing better than a quality clay pot. Proper drainage gives their roots room to breathe, and superior clay holds in the moisture they need.
Choose from three natural colors: cream, rosa and gray. The cream and rosa are classic pottery colors, while the gray is one that Berg's created themselves. All three colors are in step with popular trends in Scandinavian design and décor.
The clay is fired at very high temperatures, giving the pots a natural strength and a special treatment ensures that the saucers are completely waterproof, making the pots suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. The high density of the clay, makes the pots frost resistant and allows air to the roots and retain moisture due to the superlative quality of the clay, thus giving plants the optimum growth conditions.
The Helena comes in three different colors and several diameters:
- Light: 12, 14, 16, 18, and 21 cm
- Rosa: 8.5, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 21, 25 and 30 cm
- Gray: 8.5, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 21, 25 and 30 cm
We pulled out all the stops with the Helena pot and as a result, it now comes in three new formats: a dish, a rose pot and a miniature.
- Dish: Light and Gray; 21 cm
- Rose pot: Pink and Gray; 14 cm
- Miniature: Light & Gray; 8.5 cm
Note: as these are handmade there will be irregularities in texture, tone and size
