Terracotta Pots & Planters

Established in 2007 Mud Mountain has grown to become one of the leading importers of Italian terracotta pots.  We offer a specialist range of hand made Tuscan terracotta vases, olive jars and urns that are not available from most traditional garden centres and retailers.

We have 20 years experience dealing with potteries worldwide and have used this experience to source a high quality range of garden terracotta to bring to the British market.  Having instantly appreciated, in particular, the quality of the Italian terracotta and admired the skill of the artisan potters, we decided to concentrate on these potteries and our business now is almost exclusively dealing with the Italians.

We select our specialist range of large terracotta pots and planters from the Artisan Potteries of Tuscany. They are all hand made by Master Potters, using traditional methods and skills handed down over many generations. The terracotta pots we stock are made using Galestro clay, a high quality raw material found only in a small area of Tuscany.  A very dense and viscous clay, Galestro is hard to work but terracotta pots made with it are of very high quality and frost resistant to even the harshest climatic conditions.

Beautiful, Contemporary Designs

These classical and contemporary designs sit well in many different garden styles; mediterranean, terrace, courtyard or English country garden. They are ideally suited to large Olive trees, Bay and Box but also look stunning planted with flowering shrubs, fruit trees, bedding plants or bulbs.

About Us

We have visited all our pottery manufacturers in order to appreciate fully the production process, the skills needed to produce these beautiful pots and the limitations of hand making terracotta pots of this size and quality and have formed close links with them. We now only trade with a select few that offer consistently high quality products and ensure that we visit those potteries throughout the year to maintain our relationship and to keep an eye out for new designs.

And of course its also an excuse to combine business with pleasure and indulge in the fabulous pasta and wine of the region!
