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.
Handcrafted in Tamegroute, these wonderful plates display the classic vibrant green colours and are a wonderful way to present Moroccan cuisine or other dishes.
