Glazed Ceramic

Glazing a clay pot transforms it. During the kiln firing, the glaze melts to coat the pot in a thin layer of glassy material. As a result, the pot becomes stronger, frost- and waterproof, if it is glazed inside and out, and, depending on the glaze, more colorful, while its cost still remains relatively low. Match your pots with planting for a unified display.
