This unique "rough and rustic" green pottery is made near Zagora, which is situated in the Draa Valley in south east Morocco, and is known as Tamgroute pottery.
The striking green colour is formed during the firing process and is a result of the traditional glaze used which contains magnesium, silicon and copper.
All Tamgroute pottery is hand made, so small variations in size and colour will occur. In addition, because the pottery is made using ancient methods, it is a little fragile and the finish somewhat "rough and ready". A degree of unevenness and some imperfections in the glaze only add to the rustic charm and gorgeousness of this beautiful pottery.
This fabulous garden urn is 60cm high, and has a drainage hole in the base.
Because of the relatively low temperature used in firing, the urn can be damaged in a hard frost, so we would recommend covering the urn for protection in very cold weather or moving the urn indoors
Price: £300 (not including shipping)
