Beautiful hand made and painted blue bowl from Fez, Morocco. This deep bowl can be used every day in the kitchen, or used to hold displays. Signed by the artist on the bottom, the side pattern is in a version of the Hand symbol used in many cultures and religions.
Called the Hand of Fatima, the Hamsa, the Khamsa, the Humes Hand, and the Hand of Miriam, this is a powerful feminine symbol for warding off the Evil Eye. It was used by ancient Phoenicians, Jews, and Muslims, and continues to protect people of all faiths and geography.
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!
