Technique

Handmade in Nabeul, Tunisia each ceramic piece from Le Souk Ceramique is created using old world techniques and natural ingredients.  Craftsmen & women begin by shaping each item using white Portuguese molding clay, either on a potter's wheel or by hand. After each piece is hand-formed, teams of artisans work with natural glazes to create the hand painted designs. 

Each painter has a distinct duty in the painting process, meaning as many as six or seven artisans may touch a single piece before the design is complete.  The artisans freehand paint the motifs to create the intricate designs adorning each piece.  Once completed, the finished products are fired in a kiln, setting the glaze.

About The Country

Tunisia

With the capital, Tunis, strategically located on the Mediterranean Sea, Tunisia has been a seat of power over the centuries to the Romans, Arabs, Ottoman Turks and French.  Following independence from French rule in 1956, Tunisia has been governed by only two heads of state, President Bourguiba for three decades and President Ben Ali from 1987 until 2011. The October 2011 elections brought leadership responsible for drafting a new constitution. However the assassination of the opposition leader in July 2013 resulted in calls for the current government to resign.
