Ceramic with cobalt
approx 2.75"W x 1"H
Enjoy this beautiful dish that is small enough to hold your miniature treasures while large enough for functional use. They are appropriate as ramekins for sauces or seasonings at the table, perhaps even for tiny tea parties or a ring dish.
In Moroccan ceramics, blue and white are the signature colors of Fez.
These bowls are handmade and hand-painted with traditional Berber designs in cobalt blue by skilled young students at an artisan school in Fez.
- These ceramics come from Le Centre de Formation et de Qualification dans les Métiers de l’ Artisanat (CFQMA) à Fès.
The king of Morocco sponsored this new government institution in Fez as a vocational training center for traditional handicrafts. Visitors are welcome to watch young adult students at work learning a trade and to support the school by purchasing crafts directly from the workshop.
We loved buying from the CFQMA because it represents our interests in preserving and continuing the beauty of handmade functional art in Moroccan culture, and because it was fun to observe and interact with the friendly students and staff.
