    Story Behind the Art:
    Moroccan ceramics are predominantly made by men who inherit the craft from their fathers and grandfathers, passed down for generations. Today, there are some trade schools which are beginning to teach Moroccan pottery making. The engraved ceramic vases were made by a group of three artisans - ages 17, 24 and 30. One of them is the pottery shop's son. The artisans are located in the ocean-side city of Safi, Morocco, which is known for ceramics made of red clay. Mostafa and Rachid are extremely skilled at the craft and can make a large variety of items such as plates or bowls using the potter's wheel in less than ten minutes. Ahmed makes these items all year long in order to save money and get married. Mostafa and Rachid also work full time to support themselves. They are not married but they hope to have families in the future.

    What is Worldstock?

    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.

    • Pretty vase
      Verified Purchase

      Very pretty Vase. I got it because of the blue color goes perfectly with my bedroom colors. A bit smaller than I thought but fits in perfectly in the room. Would love to find other pieces to go with it.

    • Nice vase, not glossy or glazed finish
      Verified Purchase

      I ordered the yellow or marigold color vase. I do like it, although it is not a glazed vase. It is painted and not finished with a gloss or shine as shown online. Actually looks more authentic this way.

    • Ceramic Pot
      Verified Purchase

      A picture does not always describe a product. This is not a vase but a ceramic pot. If the one i ordered had a hole in the bottom i would use it as a planter.

    • MORROCAN VASE
      Verified Purchase

      THE MORROCAN VASE BLUE COLOR IS SO RICH AND THE TEXTURE SO LUCIOUS THAT IT APPEARS AS IF IT COULD JUST MELT IN YOUR HANDS IF YOU HANDLED IT TOO LONG. THE SIZE IS GOOD BUT I WOULD'VE LIKED TO BE PERHAPS JUST A FEW CENTIMETERS LARGER. BECAUSE IT HAS OTHER HUES IT PICKS UP NICELY IT SURROUNDING COLORS. I WAS VERY HAPPY WHEN I RECIEVED. I BOUGHT IT AS A GIFT FOR MOM AND ALMOST KEPT IT FOR MYSELF. I WILL BE RETURNING TO THE WEBSITE IN SEARCH OF PERHAPS TWO MORE BUT EACH A BIT LARGER THAN OTHER TO DISPLAY THEM A GROUP. I TRULEY LOVE IT. THANK YOU, LMBS *****I GIVE IT 5STARS

      This ceramic vase came carefully wrapped in bubble-wrap and paper to insure safe delivery. The details engraved are vivid and colorful. The artesian is truly talented. I was very satisfied with the delivery of this product. It arrived in about 5 days over a weekend. I would order from this vendor again.

    • Purchased for a friend (but I may keep it)
      Verified Purchase

      This vase is so pretty. Pretty isn't the word. It's stunning. I have worked in ceramics some--NOTHING LIKE THIS; but I so appreciate the art and craftsmanship of the individual who did. I love that it isn't factory made and has that sense of warmth that comes from someone's hands. I love that Overstock has the Worldstock Section. As the title says, I bought this as a housewarming gift for a friend who has visited and loved Morrocco, however I'm having a hard time parting with it. I do wish the turquoise had been available. I guess I'll just have to buy another blue one and my friend and I can have matching decor! It really is lovely, but if you're looking for something totally pristine this may not be for you. There is a small blemish (that I think adds character) and the bottom is unglazed so be mindful of the surface you're putting it on.

    • Dull Colors, Not as pictured
      Verified Purchase

      Just received today. The quality seems o.k., but the colors are no where near as bright and vibrant as pictured. ( The photos probaby reflect the camera flash.) I ordered the blue to try and compliment the bright royals, teals & golds in my bedroom. Well this is a very muted, dull navy/moss green and hardly has any shine. It's an o.k. vase if that's what you're looking for, but I'm probably going to send this one back. This is my second "Worldstock" order and the second time I've been dissapointed. oh well.....

    • Not what I expected
      Verified Purchase

      Very light weight. I expected this to be more substantial. The color is a lot weaker than shown. There are many imperfections on this vase. I would not recommend it. It looks beautiful displayed on the web-page. Once you get it home, you'll be disappointed.
