Story Behind the Art:
Pottery of this type is made in Safi, Morocco, a fishing village on the Atlantic coast. Safi is known as one of the centers for this art form and uses red clay to create ceramic pottery. Clay is softened by hand, and formed using a potter's wheel which is powered by foot. Pieces are dried in the hot African sun, and baked in kilns that are over 200 years old. All items are hand etched and hand painted. Artisans live comfortably yet modestly, most living with extended family. Artisans work in the souk (Market) in the medina (center of town). This art form is passed down from father to son. Moroccans are very proud of their arts and in preserving their heritage.
