Square Ashtray , handmade respecting the ancient ritual with hand-painted designs inspired by the city of Rabat
Pottery or glazed ceramic has been developed in the city of Fez since the beginning of the XI century, since then it became the undisputed capital. Generations of potters have succeeded to transmit their wonderful knowledge until today.
A true work of art, each piece is unique because it was hand-crafted, and required four steps following a long process. The potter shapes the block of clay, it's prepared in order to give a shape to the desired object, after it's put into the oven for a first firing, then it passes to the decorators who follow orders of "Maalem" decorate these pieces of blue or polychrome patterns on a white background, geometric figures, flowers, letters and stylized texts. The ingredients of the colors used are part of the ancestral knowledge, and remain confidential to obtain these incomparable "blues" of FES. Then comes the last cooking which will give it the final enamel.
