This 35cm plate in white with red design was handmade and painted in Safi. This colour and design is part of the latest range of ceramics for Metroscope and is from our latest shipment.
Safi is one of the major centres of ceramics in Morocco. 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 – thee are more environmentally friendly. To learn how ceramics are made in Safi, check out this video.
The Safi plate is a great size for serving salads, couscous or other foods, or it can be used for decoration on your table or wall. If using for food, please hand-wash only in warm soapy water. Foods with a lot of turmeric may stain the bowl.
If you wish to use this plate as a decoration on your wall, there are a couple of holes on the rim at the back. Thread some fishing line, some wire or string through the holes and you can hang it.
As this item is handmade and hand-painted, please allow for some variation in colour and design.
Team this plate with smaller or larger bowls or plates in the same design and colour.
