A green half dipped Tamegrout Plate and Bowl
A set of green half-dipped Tamegrout plate and bowl.
Tamegroute pottery is a work of art and is unique to this small town that borders the Sahara in Southern Morocco. The signature green glaze contains a high proportion of manganese, silica, cobalt, a hint of copper, barley flour, and a particular type of rock found in local mines. Since Tamegroute pottery is only baked a single time, the glaze is painted before it enters the oven. It’s the copper together with the clay out of the Draa riverbed that gives these pieces the characteristic green colour.
Colours: Green/Half dipped
