A set of six Green & Black Bowls - Safi
A set of four green and black bowls.
The small city on the Atlantic Ocean is one of the Moroccan capitals of ceramics. Moroccan red clay is quarried from the Safi region and much of it is processed, thrown, and fired on Colline des Potiers (hill of the potters). The potters of Safi use the technique of polychrome decoration, which has simple borders and medallions of geometric motifs painted in blue, green, and yellow on bowls, plates, and vases.
