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.

    The plate I received had a very different colors from what was described. There was a lot of dark red in the center area. The plate does not "pop" the way I would have hoped. Also, when the light shines on it, it reflects in a funny way and looks very washed out. Sorry, I was really hoping to love this

    Verified Purchase

    Overstock quickly sent a replacement which is on the way. The customer service rep said they must have sent the wrong color when I told her what I received. It was not the intense blue I expected. Color is terra cotta brick with brown and green. I also ordered. "Red" vase which was brown and faded. I don't think this is just minor variation that would be expected with handmade objects. Cheaply made and looks mass produced, not worth the money,
