The brand "Pott"
The highest production standards and over 100 years of flawless pedigree, handcrafting exclusive flatware and accessories have made the name Pott a mainstay for connoisseurs around the world. Sterling silver and stainless steel are the materials used in the manufactory by master artisans and turned into objects of extraordinary beauty and lasting value. Prestigious design awards bear testimony to the role that Pott plays in modern table culture.
Contrary to the modern and elegant appearance of Pott flatware, the production of these pieces seems almost archaic. Before any piece winds up in your hand, it has gone through the hands of master craftsmen, who with great dedication and patience work every tool until it has satisfied the most exigent quality requisites. Processing techniques have been passed down and refined over the decades.
Smoothing, sharpening, honing, sanding, polishing, brushing, grinding, and in between stepping back and examining every detail, every nuance gets the full attention of the master craftsman. With a trained eye and "music in the hands" Pott flatware perform precision work that is reminiscent of Swiss watch makers and the cutting of diamonds. Such work cannot be replaced by computerized equipment.
The POTT brand is firmly tied to the beliefs personified by the firm's founder Carl Pott.
Carl Pott, artist, craftsman and entrepreneur, with all his talents, gifts and uncompromising dedication single handedly created the mystique of the POTT brand. The demands made on perfection and the goal to create ergonomic, autonomous and fascinating shapes is the premise and standard for the brand and its products. "Perfecting the structure of function," has been, is, and continues to be the dictum for daily activities.
