Rare hand built ceramics by the last few women potters of the Rif Mountains of Northern Morocco. The clay is collected close to the village and markings panted with natural pigments using feathers and goat hair
The potters of northern Morocco perpetuate the ancient art of hand modelled ceramics which first appeared around 6,000 BC. This ancestral know-how, which has disappeared around the Mediterranean, still lives in the pre-Rif. Today, these last few women potters are the guardians of this ancient art.
Each traditional piece is unique and echoes the marks belonging to each tribe, in-fact every maker has their own recognisable style.
