Comments about Product: Considering the price of this item, I expected it to be a high quality product. I was VERY upset to see that there were 2 noticeable areas where the pottery was damaged when the personalization was created. The pottery was chipped and missing glazing in 2 spots right near the letters, which tells me that the personalization was put on the crock after it was fired. I contacted the company via email and phone the same day I received the order (12/20), but I didn't get a response back from either. I ended up calling the number again listed for customer services on the 26th, assuming the delay was due to the busy Christmas holidays. I must now wait almost a month to see if the exchanged item will live up to my expectations and be able to be the must delayed Christmas gift as it was intended.
Comments about Product: I ordered the chicken crock and dragonfly in green, the pineapple in blue and the owl in black. They all arrived in black.I am giving them to different families (same name)so I wanted to differentiate by color.I will just differentiate by symbol instead.

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!
