This hand made blue bowl was meticulously painted by hand with stripes around the inside and out in Fez, Morocco. Signed on the bottom by the artist, the focus it takes to maintain this even stripe pattern is unbelievable! A very special piece indeed. These deep bowls can be used in the kitchen, to hold displays in other rooms, or to be displayed on its own for the craftsmanship it required.
Fez is famous for its distinctive pottery. Best made from white clay, Fez pottery is traditionally glazed in white and dark blue, with patterns of Arabic or geometric designs. Gadabout Goods discovered these select pieces at a colorful shop run by 2 brothers in the souk.
Each piece arrives to you carefully wrapped with handmade notes about its origin, passing on a personal connection and adding a uniqueness to the shopping (or gifting) experience.
Gadabout Goods’ second collection is from the ancient city of Fez, in northern Morocco. Considered by many to be Morocco’s intellectual and cultural capital, Fez is home to the world’s oldest university, and its sprawling medina (old city) is the largest car-free urban zone on the planet. The medina mystifies visitors with its warren of tiny lanes leading to various souks (markets), bursting with goods, people, donkeys, and carts.
Fez is truly a magical place!
