Terra-cotta Clay Pots

Today's clay pots are mostly machine-molded rather than hand-thrown, but you can still buy handmade pots from specialist potteries or antique shops. The higher the temperature of the firing, the greater the frost resistance—and cost. Clay is porous, and pots dry out quickly in hot sun.
