Can I make custom terra cotta flower pots?

I would like to make some rectangular terra cotta flower pots with raised fleur-de-lis designs for my front porch. Is there a way to do this? What supplies would I need to make the pots and the molds?

Terra cotta is a type of low-fire clay, so you need to have the pottery/ceramic equipment (kiln, wedging board, maybe slip-casting equipment). Or you can glue 3-d designs onto purchased (probably plastic) pots the right shape and paint them the right color.
