---------------------------------

In Morocco, Palestine and Tunisia, the art of pottery making has been passed down from one generation to another. Ceramics are made in family workshops with fathers and grandfathers teaching their sons. Each ceramic is made in a three step process and takes over a week. First the ceramic is shaped, dried and smoothed. The drying takes place in a 1000 degree oven for a day. During the second step, each ceramic is first painted with a design outline in black and then the colors are filled in. After the ceramics are colored and dried, they move to the final step. The final stage is hand dipping the ceramic in a clear glaze and firing.
The handpainting style is unique to each country. In Palestine, ceramics are hand painted in vibrant floral patterns. Black and blue line patterns are popular in Morocco and in Tunisia, more colorful patterns are painted. All ceramics are safe for use in microwave and dishwasher.
