Additional Information

From the 8th-9th century, the 4,000-year-old indigenous Berber population knew the art of making glazed and enameled earthenware. This vase stands 16 inches tall and has even bigger impact due to the fine metal and bone inlay work on all sides. Truly a regal piece from Morocco.

Safi has the oldest kilns in Morocco and is known for its use of camel bone in pottery design. Potters mix local red clay by walking on it. Pots are molded on foot-operated potters wheels and baked in the kilns, which as of old, continue to be fired with dried hardwood. After being painted with bright colors, plain or henna-stained camel bone designs are adhered to the earthenware, especially plates and vases.
