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 colours: cream, rosa and grey. The cream and rosa are classic pottery colours, while the grey is one that we created ourselves. All three colours are in step with popular trends in Scandinavian design and décor.
The clay is fired at very high temperatures, giving the pots a natural strength and a special treatment ensures that our saucers are completely waterproof, making our pots suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. The high density of the clay, makes the pots frost resistant and allows air to the roots and retain moisture due to the superlative quality of the clay, thus giving plants the optimum growth conditions.
Pottery Handmade with Love Since 1942
pots are created with love in Tuscany. We take pride in the beauty and strength of our pots, made from premium clay. High-quality materials and craftsmanship mean the pots’ patinas will improve with age, and live on from one generation to the next.
Story of Potter
Once upon a time in Copenhagen
During one of the bleakest periods of World War II, Victor Berg inherited a ceramics shop on Rantzausgade in the Nørrebro neighbourhood of Copenhagen. Victor, an eager young accountant, wanted to bring a bit of life and colour into the war-depressed lives of his fellow Copenhageners. He decided the best way to do so would be to add flowers to the shop. The unique combination of fresh flowers and aged ceramics soon made the store a popular place to visit and shop.
One shop, two shops, three shops
Demand for flowers and pots grew swiftly, and Victor Berg realized the business needed to expand beyond that first shop on Rantzausgade. He went on to open two more shops in the city: one on Købmagergade, now Copenhagen’s most famous shopping street, and later in the Western neighbourhood of Vesterbrogade.
Two new Bergs join the business
As Victor’s business grew, so too did his family. In the middle of this flowery fairytale, two new Bergs came into the world: Steffen and Christine (Sysser) Berg.
Steffen started to help his father in the shops from the age of 7, and Sysser later joined him. As time went by, Steffen became the merchant who went to the flower market and managed stock in the basement of the original Rantzausgade location. He remembers how he had to pound the floor twice with a broomstick before going down the stairs to be sure that all the rats went into hiding. Sasser was the creative head of the family and had a flair for new trends.
The legacy is passed on
Berg senior continued to be a part of the flower shops until his death. Steffen and Sysser knew early on that they would carry on their father’s passion for flowers and pots. The Berg siblings also were enthusiastic about pottery, history and archaeology, which took them on a search through several Scandinavian castles, noble manor houses and historical archives.
In the end, they stumbled on their first great inspiration in an old garden shed. There, they found an elegant flowerpot that gave the inspiration for Berg’s flagship: the Copenhagen Pot. This line of new pots was (and still is) produced from the finest terracotta – as royal potters had used centuries before.
