. . .derives it's name from a small piazza in Rome where owner, Robin Norris' mother, used to buy fresh flowers and vegetables for the family home, Palazzo di Campitelli. Literally, Campo de' Fiori means "Field of Flowers" and the combination of flowers and the elegance of classical Rome combined to inspire its current incarnation.

Our preference for the odd plant out, as a choice, almost demands an interesting partner in either terra cotta or stone. We therefore delight in creating new pots and planters upon which we just can’t help but cultivate our trademark moss. This simply came naturally to us and it seems to have caught the fancy of more than a few garden aficionados.
This natural aging process requires patience and time – in the making, in the finishing, and in the greenhouse. This allows the magic to take shape through Nature’s hand. Others may try to dupe you with artificial this or that, and quick fixes, but we simply won’t. Nor will we use or sell to you materials that cannot return naturally to Our Earth. And once our terra cotta pots are planted, the natural aging process will continue evolve, creating a varied surface texture of vibrant mosses along with naturally occurring colors that evoke the classic look of antiquity we so revere.
Clay gathered from the lagoon. Tread upon by foot, kneaded by hand. Thrown on the wheel, feet thrashing, fingers shaping. Fired with wood, aged with care in the misty greenhouse, over time, until there appears on each and every one the lush, lusty green of the beloved moss.
Our companion collection of copper-plated plant saucers and trays, and iron trivets and plant stands allow for a harmonious plant presentation in both home & garden.
Raise it up. Enhance its presence. The strength of iron, the grace of copper. On a trivet, on a saucer, on a shelf, on a windowsill. Into the light.
Terra cotta planters are stored in a greenhouse for 3 months so that each piece can be shipped with live moss, enriching them with a 'growing-patina' of time. Each has drainage hole(s) in the bottom. Copper look steel saucers are available on page 35.
Terra cotta figures are painted and stained to emulate the richness of historical work. These pieces are for interior use only.
Stone pieces are all hand carved and available in an aging dark stain and/or light stain to add definition to the detail. Stone planters are also hand carved.
A truly aged look in cast stone is a pleasing complement to the mossed finish of our Terrra Cotta.
