$60.00|Made in Morocco
The Moroccan Safi red serving platter is a beautiful piece you will love at home. Ideal to serve fresh salads, rice, roast, fruits and more.
The distinctive ceramics of Safi have the characteristic of using highly calcific local clay, rich in iron oxide. The unique material is mixed with water, wood and a selection of chemical compounds; creating the uniquely gorgeous pieces for which the city is known.
Each piece is hand thrown and left to dry before a coat of kaolin-based varnish is applied, giving it the creamy sheen of porcelain. The piece is once again left to dry before firing; with the subsequent cooling period lasting up to two days. The pieces are fired, cooled and hand-decorated. As a result, each artisan is in charge of painting the delicate symmetrical designs for serving plates.
