Bring a formal touch to any space with Martin Kellock Pots and Planters range of traditional Anduze urns, jars and coupes.
Designers of formal, European style gardens often include urns in their garden designs. Urns provide focus, create structure and signal style more than any other pot shape. And the queen of all urns is the original Anduze urn.
Made from terracotta glazed in traditional Jaspered colours or Antica patina, our range of gorgeous traditional Anduze Pottery includes urns, jars and coupes.
The designs have been inspired by the centuries-old history of European gardens and glazed terracotta. The same urns have been supplied to the Chateau de Versailles, the Mairie de Montpellier, the Mairie de Nice Côte d’Azur and Chateau de Flaugergues and to many other notable locations.
Gardens featuring these urns, jars and coupes are in good company and will be recognised as the stylish formal gardens their designers intended them to be.
Our Anduze range even comes with a legend. According to legend: in 1610 a potter visited a fair in the city of Beaucaire and was captivated by the elegance of a Tuscany Medicis urn.
That potter then created the first Anduze planter design by combining a subtle mix of Italian expansiveness and French austerity from the Cévennes.
Originally designed to be planted with orange or lemon trees to embellish aristocratic properties, the Anduze planters quickly became the true symbol of prestige and elegance in French Southern gardens. Today, they continue to be a symbol of elegance and prestige worldwide.
There is so much more than urns in this range – even though the urns are hard to go past. Coupes (or cups) are designed to be decorative and sit on a stone wall, atop a pillar or on the garden table.
Provence jars (or Biot) were originally designed to carry oil. These planters are shaped somewhat like an olive. Handmade over a rope covered form, glazed at the top and then stressed after firing to create an aged appearance – the mark of the maker is evident on these beautiful planters.
Martin Kellock Pots and Planters source Anduze pots from an exclusive workshop that has been awarded the ‘Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant’ (Living Heritage Enterprise) award.
The craftspeople in this workshop have mastered the art of hand throwing, modelling and stamping the clay, and can proudly claim to be innovative while defending an authentic French made handmade quality of the traditional Anduze Jaspered color or its worldwide famous Antica patina.
