Story Behind the Art:
Although there are some women entering into this craft, Moroccan pottery is an art form that is predominantly composed of male artisans. The artisans range in age from teenagers to men in their late sixties. 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 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.
