Indoors, place large, glazed pots throughout the home for a simple decoration in corners or foyers or to break up a large, plain wall. Display empty pots as art pieces, or fill the pots with floral craft foam, marbles, polished stones or aquarium gravel and add artificial flowers, greenery, wheat sprigs or eucalyptus branches. Change content themes for holidays, seasons or home remodeling. Other indoor uses for large, glazed pots include umbrella and walking cane storage.

Place pots throughout gardens for added color, and add herbs, spices, berries and other plants that are targeted by rodents or birds when planted in the ground. Create a spectacular spilled flower pot in landscaping by laying a large pot on its side and planting flowers in the soil, starting from the rim of the pot and flowing downwards. For apartment or city living where yards are not available, use large, glazed pots for building a garden or displaying flowers on a rooftop or balcony.
