How It Began …
Established in 2007 Mud Mountain has grown to become one of the leading importers of Italian terracotta pots. We offer a specialist range of classical, 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 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!
