    Story Behind the Art:
    Moroccan ceramics are predominantly made by men who inherit the craft from their fathers and grandfathers, passed down for generations. Today, there are some trade schools which are beginning to teach Moroccan pottery making. The engraved ceramic vases were made by a group of three artisans - ages 17, 24 and 30. One of them is the pottery shop's son. The artisans are located in the ocean-side city of Safi, Morocco, which is known for ceramics made of red clay. Mostafa and Rachid are extremely skilled at the craft and can make a large variety of items such as plates or bowls using the potter's wheel in less than ten minutes. Ahmed makes these items all year long in order to save money and get married. Mostafa and Rachid also work full time to support themselves. They are not married but they hope to have families in the future.

  • MORROCAN VASE

    THE MORROCAN VASE BLUE COLOR IS SO RICH AND THE TEXTURE SO LUCIOUS THAT IT APPEARS AS IF IT COULD JUST MELT IN YOUR HANDS IF YOU HANDLED IT TOO LONG. THE SIZE IS GOOD BUT I WOULD'VE LIKED TO BE PERHAPS JUST A FEW CENTIMETERS LARGER. BECAUSE IT HAS OTHER HUES IT PICKS UP NICELY IT SURROUNDING COLORS. I WAS VERY HAPPY WHEN I RECIEVED. I BOUGHT IT AS A GIFT FOR MOM AND ALMOST KEPT IT FOR MYSELF. I WILL BE RETURNING TO THE WEBSITE IN SEARCH OF PERHAPS TWO MORE BUT EACH A BIT LARGER THAN OTHER TO DISPLAY THEM A GROUP. I TRULEY LOVE IT. THANK YOU, LMBS *****I GIVE IT 5STARS

  • Just Beautiful

    This ceramic vase came carefully wrapped in bubble-wrap and paper to insure safe delivery. The details engraved are vivid and colorful. The artesian is truly talented. I was very satisfied with the delivery of this product. It arrived in about 5 days over a weekend. I would order from this vendor again.

  • Purchased for a friend (but I may keep it)

    This vase is so pretty. Pretty isn't the word. It's stunning. I have worked in ceramics some--NOTHING LIKE THIS; but I so appreciate the art and craftsmanship of the individual who did. I love that it isn't factory made and has that sense of warmth that comes from someone's hands. I love that Overstock has the Worldstock Section. As the title says, I bought this as a housewarming gift for a friend who has visited and loved Morrocco, however I'm having a hard time parting with it. I do wish the turquoise had been available. I guess I'll just have to buy another blue one and my friend and I can have matching decor! It really is lovely, but if you're looking for something totally pristine this may not be for you. There is a small blemish (that I think adds character) and the bottom is unglazed so be mindful of the surface you're putting it on.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? To a T
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Beautiful workmanship, one very small portion was not glazed but adds to its handmade-ness
    • How accurate was the sizing? Perfect
    • Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes
  • vase

    ordered cobalt blue? Looks nothing like picture. Expected item to be much larger, get vase in the picture and that it would not look like it had a rushed paint job. Don't want to go thru hassle of returning, so will try to work into decor with other vases I own.

  • Pretty vase

    Very pretty Vase. I got it because of the blue color goes perfectly with my bedroom colors. A bit smaller than I thought but fits in perfectly in the room. Would love to find other pieces to go with it.

  • Nice vase, not glossy or glazed finish

    I ordered the yellow or marigold color vase. I do like it, although it is not a glazed vase. It is painted and not finished with a gloss or shine as shown online. Actually looks more authentic this way.

  • Ceramic Pot

    A picture does not always describe a product. This is not a vase but a ceramic pot. If the one i ordered had a hole in the bottom i would use it as a planter.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Much prettier in 'real life'

  • Moroccan ceramic vase

    Acceptable as a Moroccan piece for display on my walls.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. I have ordered many Moroccan plates, bowls and plates for a display in my room, and this one was a little smaller than the rest, as well as a second quality compared to the others. It will suffice though.
    • How accurate was the sizing? smaller than expected
