Our Pottery Collections

If your plants could speak, they would tell you that there’s nothing better than a quality clay pot. Proper drainage gives their roots room to breathe, and superior clay holds in the moisture they need.

Choose from our three natural colors: cream, pink and gray. The cream and pink are classic pottery colors, while the gray is one that we created ourselves. All three colors are in step with popular trends in Scandinavian design and décor.

The natural strength of these versatile pots means they can work both inside and out. Their durability comes from high-temperature firings and a subtle silicone treatment—which means they are also completely waterproof.

Glazed by Bergs
Glazed by Bergs

We have gone back in time, to the old-fashioned glaze for our historic pots, with depth and very intense and lively colors, glazed by hand.

The glaze plays beautifully with the plants, and have this special glow about it, of ancient times…

The colors are classical and saturated, and thoroughly chosen to match one and another, so you can use them together or as one unique piece.

Made to last in both quality and style, we are in love.

The glazed Copenhagen Pot in Emerald Green comes in sizes 14, 16 and 18:

The Slot Pot

No, this pot does not double as a piggy bank! We call this the “Slot Pot” since “slot” is the Danish word for “castle”—and this pot was first made at Fredensborg “Slot” in 1860. Over time, production moved to smaller potters in Copenhagen, where it was made until plastic pots began to grow in popularity in the 1960s. Steffen Berg found one of the pots years ago in a former nursery, and immediately recognized its beauty. Today, our potters make the pot in a small village near Lucca in Tuscany.

The Copenhagen Pot comes in three colors and several sizes:

  • Light: 12, 14, 16, 18, 21, 25, 30 and 35 cm
  • Rosa: 12, 14, 16, 18, 21, 25, 30 and 35 cm
  • Gray: 12, 14, 16, 18, 21, 25, 30 and 35 cm

The Beautiful

Clay pearling along Helena’s top edge gives this pot a soft and classic look.

North of Rome lies the small town of Di Bolzena, a place once filled with potters and the home of Robert Rosso. Taking inspiration from ancient Greek Designs, Rosso created the Helena Pot, which was popular throughout the 1800s. There’s been a recent rebirth of interest in the classic design, and Tuscan potters are now making it again.

The Helena comes in three different colors and several diameters:

  • Light: 8.5, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 21, 25 and 30 cm
  • Rosa: 8.5, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 21, 25 and 30 cm
  • Gray: 12, 14, 16, 18 and 21

We pulled out all the stops with the Helena pot and as a result, it now comes in three new formats: a dish, a rose pot and a miniature.

  • Dish: Rosa and Gray; 21 cm
  • Rose pot: Rosa and Gray; 14 cm
  • Miniature: Rosa and Gray; 8.5 cm


La Petite Française

Simona is a romantic Parisian pot that we imagine has appeared in countless French homes since the peak of its popularity in the 1820s-1860s. It was first created in Paris’ Latin Quarter, but—alas!—the original artist’s name remains a mystery.

Years ago we spotted this delightful pot in the midst of a flea market in Montmartre. Today we have it made by our Tuscan potters.

The Simona comes in three different colors and three diameters:

  • Light: 12, 14 and 16 cm
  • Rosa: 12, 14 and 16 cm
  • Gray: 12, 14 and 16 cm

The Noblesse

When we think of Daisy, we think first and foremost of the Danish Queen, her royal highness Margrethe the 2nd. Among Danes it is a public secret that family and friends call the Queen the nickname Daisy.Our Daisy has been Designed by Bergs itself and symbolizes the strength, elegance and classical lines of the Queen. Furthermore, the name refers to the flower by the same name – also known as a Marguerite – with all its class, elegance and simple beauty. And so, our Daisy represents both the Queen of Denmark and a flower favorite to many. The pot comes both as a classical standing pot and a wall hanging pot. And trust us, you want to hang out with Daisy!

The Daisy comes in two colors and three sizes, of which one is a wall pot for hanging:

  • Rosa: 25, 30 and 30wall
  • Gray: 25, 30 and 30wall

Parade w/ Stig Lauritsen

The Parade Pot is named for the Parade House in Gisselfeld Castle Park, a glass greenhouse that was first seen at the London World’s Fair in 1851. The Parade House today shelters an orange-growing operation and an extensive garden designed by Stig Lauritsen. As the designer of the Parade Pot, Lauritsen took inspiration for this collection from an ancient Belgian design.

The conical design is an old standby for pots as it suits many different types of plant.

The Parade Pot was the first of our botanical series.

Parade comes in two colors and three diameters each:

  • Rosa: 13, 15 and 18
  • Gray: 13, 15 and 18

The Roman Rope

The signature rope edge on this tall, slender pot is inspired by the Roman Empire. Since 1800, it’s been produced in the city of Modena in the Emilia-Romagna region of Tuscany. We produce it today in Tuscany as well, using time-honored techniques.

The Emilia comes in two different colors and three diameters:

  • Rosa: 16, 30 and 35 cm
  • Gray: 16, 30 and 35 cm

Designed by Christian Buur Bangsgaard

The Planet Series arose from versatile designer Christian Buur Bangsgaard’s fascination with modular structure, and features layered rings of different sizes. Taut design meets a soft finish, resulting in the line of pots called Jupiter, Neptune, Saturn, Venus and Mars.

Bangsgaard has built his design reputation through working with ceramics, gardens, and paper clips. Charlottenborg and Traphold. He has received numerous awards including the Arts Award in Ceramics.

The Planet Pots come in two colors and five sizes:

  • Rosa: Mars 12, Venus 14, Saturn 16, Neptune 21 and Jupiter 25
  • Gray: Mars 12, Venus 14, Saturn 16, Neptune 21 and Jupiter 25

Less is more

In 1960 Milan, when designer Ninetta Mariani created the Julie Pot, she exclaimed, “I couldn’t add another thing to it!” Today we still agree. This elegant, understated pot keeps the plant in primary focus.

The Julie comes in two different colors and several diameters:

  • Rosa: 10, 12, 14, 17 and 21 cm
  • Gray: 10, 12, 14, 17 and 21 cm

Simple and Strong

Sturdy and elegant, The Galestro stands firm from its edge to its subtly tapered base. Galestro is the name for the type of clay used to construct the pot, and we think the name also suits this design well.

The Galestro comes in two different colors and two diameters:

  • Rosa: 35 and 40 cm
  • Gray: 35 and 40 cm
