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.

Pros - the colors are nice; there are 4 containers Cons - according to the description: "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." Now, the 4 containers were advertised as being 8"x5". I assumed they would be relatively close to each other... nope! One was 6"x5" and the other 3 were 5"x4"!!! Not one was close to the actual size. Secondly, they don't seal... at all. These are containers for the kitchen - i want to put stuff in them that won't get eaten by bugs. One container is close to closing tight, but the other 3 wouldn't keep a small mouse out. If you like bugs and rodents, these are perfect for you. I mean, come on... "artisan skill"???? I on-armed blind potter could make a better container. Really...**??? I'm really disappointed. Not sure if Overstock got one pulled over on them or if they are trying to pull one over on us. I'm going to assume the former as I've had great dealings with O prior to this order. fail.Read More
