Clarks® Footwear

The Clarks® footwear story began way back in 1825 in a small village in England. Brothers Cyrus and James Clark created their first pair of Clarks® shoes out of sheepskin scraps, which people loved because they were exceptionally comfortable and long lasting. The shoes became instantly popular, word spread and C&J Clark Limited was born. Today, Clarks® footwear uses more innovative techniques and materials, while remaining true to their history as traditional shoemakers. Clarks® shoes and sandals are renowned for that same level of superior comfort and durability, and they look great, too. Shop Plow & Hearth's collection of Clarks® sandals, casual slip-on shoes and walking shoes, where you're sure to find your perfect pair.

The Olla: A Brief History

Olla (Spanish, pronounced “oh-ya”) jars have been around since ancient times. Made of unglazed ceramic, ollas traditionally have short, narrow necks with wider bodies, and are made in a variety of shapes. They have been used for thousands of years for cooking, storage, and plant irrigation.


When used to irrigate plants, an olla is buried neck-deep in the ground near a plant’s roots, with the opening of the olla extended above the soil so that it can be filled with water periodically. The porous walls of the unglazed pottery allow the water to seep through gradually, constantly and consistently hydrating the plants without overwatering them – and without wasting precious water to evaporation or runoff.


The use of ollas for irrigation was introduced to the American Southwest by Spanish conquistadors during Colonial times, becoming very common among Native American tribes and Hispanic settlers. Though the technique gave way to more modern methods of irrigation some time ago, its superior efficiency, coupled with its simplicity, has caused it to make a comeback. Though the technique has changed little since its introduction, today’s ollas are usually capped off, making them even more water-efficient.


Perfect for home gardens, Ollas are a super-easy, eco-friendly, less time-consuming way to water annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and plants of all kinds in dry, sandy soil, very hot or drought-prone areas, raised beds, and even pots, planters and hanging baskets. Fill the olla before you leave on a short vacation to enjoy worry-free watering – and a smaller water bill!

How it Works:


Water is pulled directly through the terra-cotta!
