    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.

      When you decorate with the color teal, you never know what you will get while ordering online. This plate is FABULOUS! Order two or three, makes a great wall decoration!

      I was little disappointed with the color of the plate. Instead of the turqiouse i got a bright green. The workmanship was of ok quality and could use some inprovement.

      This is the ugliest thing I have ever seen -- not even clost to what is pictured. I would expect some variances but this is a kelly green with an ugly brown background. There are flaws that do NOT add beauty to the piece. This is absolutely a waste of money. DO NOT BUY!!!

      While the plate colors are lovely, it does not look as represented in the picture. The center portion of the plate has a really dark glaze over it which hides the elaborate detail. Therefore, I was disappointed in the way it looks. But I am keeping it because I don't want the bother of shipping it back or exchanging it since I don't know what I would get on the second plate.
