Ceramic with cobalt

approx 2"W x 1"H

When it comes to ceramics in Morocco, blue and white are the signature colors of Fez. These cylindrical ceramic boxes are handmade and hand-painted with traditional Berber designs in cobalt blue by skilled young students at an artisan school in Fez.

They are perfect for jewelry, crystals, spices, your imagination. 

There is something special about little objects: precious rings, odd stones, rare coins, sentimental shells. Those personal things you keep just to take out and hold every so often. These boxes provide a perfect tiny house to keep your treasures organized and cozy, and they are miniature works of art in themselves.

  • 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.
