"Why did you choose this product?"
Really pleased with this bowl, great quality and colors. The original plan was for the hall table so we had a place to drop our keys. Way too nice for that!! Don't want to chip or scratch it. It's still going on the hall table, but the we're getting wall hooks for the keys (plan b). Got great comments on it....

Story Behind the Art:
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 worked using age old techniques and baked in kilns that are over 200 years old. The lead artisans are two brothers Saiyid and Mohamed Elham. Saiyid is 24 years old and Mohamed is 32 years old. They learned this trade from their father, who owns the kilns and commercial space in which the ceramics are created. Their father is the master artisan, who teaches all of the new artisans. In total, there are 8 artisans who work full time or part time, all male ranging from 18 years old to 55 years of age. Saiyid has also been taking college classes part time as he is pursuing a degree in business administration. Mohamed is married with two children. It is typical for younger artisans to live with their family as they save up money to be able to sustain a business of their own someday. Loans are not typically taken in this society, as it is difficult to obtain loans from financial institutions.
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.

This plate looked cheap and poorly made. Some people have mentioned areas that weren't glazed as looking like it made the item unique or something. There was a large area toward the middle of the plate and a small area near the edge that was unglazed. It looked like a glaring flaw, not like a charming aspect. The part on the edge gave the appearance of the edge being chipped. The colors were not vibrant nor attractive, and each of the zillions of little indentations was caked with dirt. It looked like something *** for $19.95. Or less...Read More

We wanted to buy a thank you gift for a friend that has everything. Very difficult to decide on what to get. I went to Overstock as I do when I am looking for something...it is always my first stop and usually my last. The description was detailed. It was a ceramic engraved Morocco Plate and was just perfect. Shipping was a breeze and delivery on time as promised!Read More
I think it's beautiful. Got it and the mustard one to go on a plate rack as decor. They are a little bowl like, so I will have to improvise a way to secure them on the rack so they don't come falling forward and crash onto the floor. That's about it.Read More
Questions & Answers
It is a beautiful piece, and the coloring is unique. I love Morocco! I have visited twice, once in1969 for a month with my parents. My Father was on a commissioned photo shoot of an old friend in the Moroccan Government. And once in 1987 with my Mother and a family friend. The piece reminds me of Safi and of all the wonderful experiences, people and places I have had the pleasure of encountering in this wonderful country! Mrs. Cleo K. Cook
