Tamegroute is a small town in the south of Morocco close to the Sahara (its name means ‘last place before the desert’). Ceramics have been created here for hundreds of years with a glaze containing manganese and copper – which gives the pottery its unique vibrant green colour. Or the glaze is altered to replace copper with iron oxide – resulting in a deep mustard colour. Each individual piece is entirely unique.
These striking lamps are exquisitely shaped and display a wonderful copper star - a symbol of happiness in Berber culture.
