A set of two Green & Black Square Plates - Safi
A set of two green and black square plates.
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.
