terra cotta pots
I had gotten some ” made in Germany” and some of them have lasted 5 and counting pot melts. What I discovered rather painfully was…you will sometimes get a crack near the base of the pot. If you lift it by the top lip…and you have several pounds of glass in it…the stress is too much and the bottom falls out. I have managed to make my pots survive longer by not being cavalier about my handling of them. The saucers are a good idea, but I have found that they are rather expensive…especially in larger sizes. Where did you find yours?
