bergs “helena” grey pot
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 bergs pottery collection began in 1942 and after 75 years is still created with love in tuscany.
