Tamegroute pottery is hand-crafted in Tamegroute, a small village located in the Draa River valley in southern Morocco, in the cusp of the Sahara Desert. In the Berber language, Tamegroute means ‘last place before the desert’.
The family-run pottery workshops in the oasis are among the oldest in the country. Dating back to the mid-1600s, they remain virtually unchanged. The clay is collected from nearby palm groves and artisans still work with manual pottery wheels. Finished pieces are fired in multi-chambered wood stoves.
The color and texture is a result of the particular alchemy created by the potters of Tamegroute and remains a family affair handed down through the generations as each pottery piece is completely unique and no two are ever the same.
Please note that the traditional method in which the plates are fired involves stacking which result in tiny ‘scars’ in the glaze making each plate unique.
Tamegroute pottery are true showpieces showing that even imperfect can be perfect.
