This tall canister in white with red design is part of the latest range for Metroscope.
The canister was handmade and painted in Safi. Safi is one of the major ceramic centres in Morocco. It also renowned for its sardines and surfing.
All parts of the process of making this canister is done by hand – from preparing the clay to painting the design. The only thing that has changes over the years is the firing, and this is now done by electric kilns. This is far more environmentally friendly and there is no longer a black haze over the ceramics quarter in Safi.
We have been working with our ceramic supplier, Mostafa, for 4 or 5 years now, and we are happy with the quality of his work.
This tall canister is perfect for storing tea, sugar, cotton balls or just for decoration.
The canister is 15cm tall and 9cm in diameter.
As these are handmade, please allow for some small variation in size, colour and design.
Team this canister with other items form this range, including serving tagines, jugs, plates and bowls.
