Stalk us, talk about us

Manufacturing line of production:

We are a cooperative that produces pottery and mosaic situated in Fes city in Morocco.
We work with grey clay unlike other products that may be found in the streets of fes which are either seconds or terra cotta products .

Why people prefer our products.

Indeed as we have explained before we are a very old family who produces and sell mosaic and pottery in Fes city but we have just strated our experience in etsy.
When you buy from our shop then you you will get the real first quality of either mosaic or pottery and help us continue our art production. As your shopping mosaic will help many families whom artisans has participated in the line of production of your oder.

Step one:

We bring the clay from the caves of Ben Jelliq "an area situated far away from Fes city by 3 km /1.87 miles."As we bring the clay wet , we leave it drying under sun very well, then we break it into small pieces and and put inside a pool then we poor water on it .
we leave it a week. An expert artisan has to go inside the pool and wedges the clay to get a paste.

Pottery production

Some of the paste we use it to make pottery and the other we use it to make mosaic .
When we want to make pottery we take some clay then we hit it very well to get rid of the bobbles and to take out any small stones could be found inside the clay.
Then we put some of the clay on the manual wheel and we start the production. We make many objects but the trimmings comes later when the products dry very well.

Designs :

We do have our special original designs that are inspired from our culture .
Each item has a story behind that we prefer to hand it hand to the buyer of our pieces at the time of delivery by our carriers because of copying or text it to the buyer directly.

Mosaic production

The clay we get from the pool, we poor it inside modes to get rectangular blocks that we hit with a flat hummer to make two square tiles 12cm/12cm.
The tiles we produce, we fire them twice in a very high temperature:

Firing process of grey clay

The first firing process takes place in 1200C°/2192F° eight hours.
The second firing process is after the colouring and the glazing process in 800C°/1472F°.

The tiles we get are in polychromic colours as (figure 1)
We use these tiles(zellije) to make tabletops
and fountains.

How it 's made ?

We sketch on the tiles many cemitrical designs that we cut using a sharp hummer.
The pieces obtained we assemble them upsidedown to realize your projects and orders then we cover them with epoxy and after four days of dring then we flip the mosaic projet over .
