Silver Rimmed Tamegroute Bowl

£95.00

Tamegroute Silver Rimmed Bowl

A beautiful silver rimmed bowl from the Tamegroute pottery, a cooperative, in southern Morocco.  Each piece is made by local craftsmen using techniques and a special green glaze handed down from generation to generation.  Scroll over the images to see the bowl in more detail.

The distinctive glaze, containing magnesium and copper, creates a multitude of colours ranging from earthy brown through rustic green to turquoise.  There are infinite variations in the glaze so no two pieces are alike.  Less than a dozen people know the secret formula for this glaze and so far no-one has been able to copy it although many have tried.

This bowl is hand thrown and hand finished with a rim and base of beaten silvery metal.  The silver contrasts with the myriad of greens in the the glaze.

Size:

  • 26cm (10.2″)at the rim
  • 11cm (4.2″) at the base

Clean with a damp cloth.  Do not submerge in water.
