Cantaro Pots - Multiple Sizes

Easy 30 Day Returns

Crafted from burnished clay and finished with a black steel base, these sleek planters double as sculptural art pieces. Their clean, modern lines instantly upgrade any corner’s botanical game. Available in two colors: terracotta and matte black.

Meticulously handcrafted by master artisans in Jalisco, Mexico, each one takes three weeks to complete. All made start-to-finish in a fair trade environment.

Note: These planters can be used both indoors and outdoors. Since this is an all-natural product, the finish will fade over time – exposure to sun and water will speed up that process.

  • Small - 9"D x 14"H (including base)
    Large - 14"D x 21"H (including base)

  • Burnished Clay pot with a Steel base

  • Terracotta or matte black pot; black steel base

Fair Trade. Guaranteed. 100% of our products are made with a process guaranteed by the World Fair Trade Organization.

This planter can be used both indoors and outdoors. Part of the beauty of this all-natural material is that the clay will fade and change over time – exposure to sun and humidity will speed up that process. To slow the aging process and minimize reaction to humidity, we recommend using a pot liner to keep soil from making direct contact with the clay.

This planter has a drainage hole at the bottom. When styling indoors, we recommend using a saucer to catch any water.

For cleaning, wipe with a dry, non-abrasive cloth to remove dust and light debris. If necessary, use mild soap and water - no harsh chemicals here!

Works of art!

I absolutely love these planters. They arrived packaged perfectly, are even more substantial than I had envisioned in photos, and really look like little sculptures for my home. I couldn't be happier.

Disappointed with the product

I was very happy to buy this product to gift it to my wife for Mother’s Day. The look is very nice but the color is yellow and not ocher red as displayed on photos but the main issue is the big warning sign inside the pot saying to not put any soil directly in it!!! So disappointed...


The Citizenry

Hi Gregory, So sorry to disappoint you here! We do expect slight color variations in finished pots - but so sad it wasn't just the perfect fit for you! And, to be on the safe side, a plastic liner helps protect the pot from stains that result from acidic soils. Someone from the team will definitely reach out to check in - and we really appreciate you taking the time to reach out with some thoughts on the Cantaro Pot. Best, -The Citizenry Team

Exactly as expected!

These pots are beautiful! They arrived very well packed and in perfect condition. The look is exactly what I wanted. The color between the two pots is slightly different but a good reminder they are handmade!

Love the look but clay is rather weak

I love this pot so much. It’s so stylish and unique. I was waiting several weeks for my birds of paradise plant to finally arrive to put inside and when I was placing it inside it slipped out of my hands and fell into pot and half the bottom of pot immediately cracked and fell to floor. I know this is my fault but I was just very surprised at how easily it broke. I own many clay pots and this one just seems the most vulnerable in structure and durability. I had my husband help glue it together but just doesn’t seem like the glue is going to hold it. I’m super bummed since this pot is just so striking (I bought the black one).
