Pots and Pithoi, the world’s largest supplier of authentic Cretan terracotta pots, has a new owner.

The company based in West Sussex, has been bought by local businessman David Dodd, a multi-award winning landscaper at The Outdoor Room and Director of landscape architects practice Longview Design. 

Established in 1985, Pots and Pithoi based in Turners Hill, was the first to introduce Cretan terracotta pots to the UK. It was taken over by Tara Bowles in 2005 who developed the business whilst maintaining its traditional values.

After being a customer for many years, new owner David jumped at the chance to purchase the company as soon as it came on the market.

David said: “I have always loved the quality of the products. I had the opportunity to visit the potters in Crete and the talent and pride of the potters completely blew me away. It was amazing to see first hand the craftsmanship that goes into making these beautiful pots. These traditional and ancient methods have been passed down through generations and I’m proud to be able to continue supplying such high quality items to the British public.”

David will continue to work with the current team to ensure a smooth transition and will celebrate his new ownership with a 50% off sale of all rugs and is planning a big January sale on all products. He said: “I’m looking forward to meeting all of my customers, both old and new, so please don’t hesitate to pop down and have a look at what’s going on.”
