Moroccan red clay is quarried from the Safi region and much of it is processed, thrown and fired on Colline des Potiers. Most potters still use traditional wood firing kilns, while some have updated to electric and gas kilns.
Typical Moroccan pottery includes plates, bowls, dishes, vases and the tangine. A tagine is a unique, funnel shaped pot used to cook traditional stews.
The designs used on Moroccan pottery are influenced by Berber and Islamic art, which was previously influenced by Phoenician, Roman and Byzantine designs. Each piece is painted by hand using modern multicolored designs as well as traditional patterns Pottery
