Le Souk Ceramique + Olivique
The studio of Le Souk Ceramique opened in 1997 in Nabeul, Tunisia. Each timeless design is created in the studio where the artisans do not use any machinery or decals. The artisans mix every color batch of food safe glazes by hand and freehand paint every detail, resulting in one-of-a-kind works. Le Souk sets wages above minimum wage, provides healthcare and social security payments for artisans, and is in process to receive Tunisia’s Fair Trade certification.
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.
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.
