Proper usage and maintenance
Proper usage and maintenance is vital for getting the most out of the valuable resources we have. Our designs are made to last for generations, but just like everything else, they need a little care to get there.
Terracotta is a beautiful looking type of earthenware formed by low-fired clay. Skagerak’s terracotta pots are hand-thrown in Portugal, which gives each pot a unique expression. Terracotta means “baked earth” in Italian and the pottery technique can be traced all the way back to ancient Greece.
Cleaning and maintenance
The product requires a minimum of care. However, if necessary clean the pot using lukewarm and soapy water. Wipe afterwards with a dry cloth. Be aware that the terracotta is fragile so always take care when moving the pot around.
The pots can be used for repotting or as covers for traditional plastic pots. They either come with a metal insert or a drain hole in the bottom, both serving the same purpose of draining excess water from the plant. Always use potting soil as normal soil is too heavy for the pot. Before potting the large Edge pots, with the bottom drain hole, it is advisable to place a small piece of fiber cloth at the bottom of the pot to prevent the hole from clogging. Then place a layer of hydrograins and to optimize the drain completely, finish with a small piece of fiber cloth again, before adding the potting soil.
Note: We recommend always using a plate or a saucer under the pot to avoid spots and marks on floor or windowsill. A saucer should also be used under the pots without drain holes. For indoor use only.

About the designer / Stilleben
Like the art phenomenon it derives its name from, the design duo Stilleben (’still life’) represents a combination of elements that come together in a harmonious whole. Ditte Reckweg and Jelena Nordentoft have achieved the same harmonious resonance. The two ceramicists met at The Danish Design School, and shortly after graduation they had the idea for the shop Stilleben, which carries carefully selected craft and design objects for the table, the home and the wardrobe. Today, Stilleben is a trend-setting and internationally recognised gallery in the heart of Copenhagen, driven by a clear sense of aesthetic, quality and passion.
