This Moroccan turquoise vase was handmade and painted in Safi, Morocco. A perfect piece to keep and show your flowers.

Safi is one of the main centres for ceramics in Morocco and is known for it colourful wares. Safi is located on the Atlantic  coast of Morocco. It’s also a good place to go for sardines and surfing.

To watch an interesting video on Safi pottery and its development, we found this interesting video made by an aid agency.

We have been buying from our current pottery works for a number of years now and we are happy with the quality of their ceramics. The whole process from preparing the clay to the final step of firing is done by hand and follows the same process for generations. The only difference now is that electric kilns are now used – these are more environmentally friendly.

When washing this vase, please hand-wash only in warm soapy water.

As this vase is handmade and hand-painted, please allow for some variation in colour and design.

You can team this turquoise vase with plates, bowls, serving tagines and canisters in the same design and colour.

This Moroccan vase measures 19.5cm tall.
