Story Behind the Art:
Although there are some women entering into this craft, Moroccan pottery it is an art form that is predominantly composed of male artisans. The artisans range in age from teenagers to men in their late 60s. Pottery of this type is made in Safi, Morocco, a fishing town on the Atlantic coast of Morocco. Safi is known as one of the centers for this art and utilizes red clay to create the ceramic pottery. Artisans live in small villas made of concrete, which is a building material that is plentiful in Morocco and also insulates the residents from the extremely high summer temperatures and intense sun. In speaking to a Moroccan artisan, one will find that he/she is very proud of their art form. If the father is an artisan then the son will almost always learn the father's trade. It is the responsibility of the son to look after his family and he inherits the secrets of the craft from his father or grandfather. It is important to keep the craft in the family.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.
