Although there are some women entering into this craft, Moroccan pottery it is an art form that is predominantly comprised 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. Clay is softened by hand, and formed using a potter's wheel which is powered by foot, using age-old techniques. Pieces are dried in the sun then baked in kilns that are over 200 years old. The lead artisans are two brothers Saiyid and Mohamed Elham. They learned this trade from their father, who owns the kilns and commercial space in which the ceramics are created. Their father is the master artisans who teaches all of the new artisans. In total, there are eight artisans who work either full or part time, all male ranging from 18 years old to 55 years of age.
