The Plethora of Beauty in Ceramics

Our collection of ceramic pottery pieces at Pottery King are a superior choice amongst all others. We chose non-organic clay material for our pottery collection because of its strength and natural appeal. No matter what shape, size, or color a client needs, we often can supply it. From ceramics to glassware and everything in between, we have all pottery needs covered. Currently, in our warehouse, we offer stylish earthenware, stoneware, and porcelain ceramics. The beauty of ceramics comes in all shapes and sizes, and we invite you to come to explore it.

How to Choose the Right Vessel

Our Pottery King warehouse holds a variety of glazed and unglazed ceramic styles, ranging from cylinders to squares, tapered shapes, and orchid pottery. One of our largest ceramic vessels that we offer is the porcelain fish pot. This pot comes in black and white and is smooth to the touch. If you’re in the market for a smaller pottery piece, we also offer cylinder and taper round shapes, which come in various glazed colors. The glaze provides substantial protection that’s perfect for the root of any plants placed inside. We also offer glazed square pots in our online store that can come with or without holes for an inspired orchid planter.

Our Ceramic Pottery Collection

Earthenware

Made of clay and heated at a low temperature, earthenware is a very porous type of pottery that allows air and water to flow through the vessel. The absorbent material makes earthenware an excellent choice for plants since they need ample air to thrive. Because this type of ceramic is composed of clay, earthenware is brittle and means that individuals should treat it with a high level of care. This type of pottery is often glazed to make the vessel more sturdy so that water doesn’t soak into it. This pottery can also be glazed, putting a hard coating on it that adds beauty and protection to the surface.

Stoneware

Just like all other pottery, stoneware is made out of clay. Stoneware, however, is fired at a higher temperature than earthenware, which produces a more substantial ceramic vessel and, as the name suggests, has a stone-like finish. Unlike unglazed earthenware, stoneware is entirely waterproof and does not require glazing. After firing, the glaze can be added onto the pottery but often is done solely for decoration. For an earthenware look with added durability, stoneware is the perfect option for any project.

Porcelain

The clay for our porcelain pottery is refined and mixed with different minerals before being baked at a high temperature. Due to the extreme heat, porcelain pottery becomes a hard ceramic with a white, glossy coating. This type of pottery is less porous and doesn’t absorb as much water as earthenware and stoneware. Some refer to porcelain as “fine china” as it was one of the earliest forms of porcelain produced.

The Advantages of Ceramic Pottery

When choosing to use ceramic pottery in individual or wholesale quantities, these hard vessels can add style and durability to a design. Ceramic is porous and, therefore, will allow the root of the plant enough air to breathe. The pot can also act as a barrier of protection to keep the roots from certain environmental factors and retain the moisture inside of them. All of the ceramic pottery that we provide at Pottery King is durable and, depending on shape and size, can withstand wind gusts and keep upright. Because the plant doesn’t fall over easily, it will help the plant avoid any disturbance caused by breaking apart.

About Pottery King

Pottery King was founded in 1997 in a small outdoor storage lot in Long Island. In the beginning, We used pottery King predominately to supply our original store, Planter Resource, located in the NYC Flower Market. After seeing a growing demand for our products of planter supplies, we expanded into a 60,000 square foot facility in 2002. We then began to supply local landscapers, garden centers, construction companies, nurseries, growers, and many more.

We keep our warehouse fully stocked with planter supplies, and we offer same or next-day delivery. We also can deliver weekly from Hamptons to Manhattan and can provide any last-minute or large quantity orders. Please call us at (631) 451-1254 for any delivery needs.

We understand that not everyone needs bulk pottery, which is why we have the perfect solution for you. Pottery King is a sister company of our pottery resale store, Planter Resource, located in the heart of the Manhattan Flower Market. It features all of the same options that we have here at Pottery King, but for the singular customer experience. If this sounds like what you’re looking for, we invite you to check it out!
