Kellock Pots & Planters’ range of Anduze pots are a great way to add instant antiquity to any landscape design, bringing with them the charm and tradition of Versailles.
Le Chêne Vert pots and urns are made in a family workshop in the township of Anduze in Southern France. The pots are hand- and rope-thrown in the traditional style, made famous by the reputation of the Anduze vase. The workshop proudly defends French manufacture of unparalleled quality.
The Anduze artisans draw inspiration from centuries-old historical gardens and glazed terracotta. Their products have been supplied to the Chateau de Versailles, the Mairie de Montpellier, the Mairie de Nice Côte d’Azur and Chateau de Flaugergues, along with other notable locations.
According to legend: Captured by the elegance of a Tuscan Medici urn while visiting a fair in the city of Beaucaire in 1610, a potter was inspired to create the first Anduze planter — which combines a subtle mix of Italian expansiveness and French austerity from the Cévennes in its design. Primarily designed to host orange and lemon trees to embellish aristocratic properties, Anduze planters quickly became flagships of French gardens in the south, standing as symbols of prestige and elegance. Today they are exported over the world.
