This handcrafted White Glazed Tamegroute Candle Holder Set come from the Southern Moroccan village of Tamgroute (or Tamegroute), where skilled potters practice local techniques that have been passed down through generations. The distinctive green glazes, ranging from earthy olives to rich pines, are the result of variations in a carefully calibrated traditional mixture of magnesium, copper oxide and barley flour.

With their unique forms, vibrant colors and the heavily grained glaze, these ceramic candle holders strike a perfect balance between art and design; the embodiment of a unique and long-lived craft which is still going strong.

This Glazed Tamegroute Candle Holder, a manifestation of artistry and tradition, originates from the historic village of Tamegroute, echoing the skills honed over generations. Since the 16th century, the village has been a cradle for numerous workshops, fostering artisans dedicated to practicing and perfecting traditional pottery techniques.

Artisans actively seek out Tamegroute clay from local caves, kneading it underfoot and relying on the African sun to naturally dry the pieces. Skillfully applying vibrant glazes, they utilize traditional stone ovens fueled by a mix of grasses, dried palm fronds, and wood, creating a distinctive dark smoke.

Surface scratches and imperfections in construction are not flaws; rather, they stand as a testament to the unique artisanal production methods employed.

The Nasiriyya religious brotherhood founders once aspired to elevate Tamegroute to city status, gathering merchants and craftsmen from Fes. Presently, Tamegroute has returned to its quaint village roots, its identity intricately woven with the art of pottery.

In Tamegroute pottery, the dominant green glaze, akin to Fes Zelliges, dictates the color palette. Artisans, employing ancient techniques, create infinite variations for the White Tamegroute Candle Holder , each piece, just like the White Tamegroute Candle Holder,  embodies a distinct story of craftsmanship and tradition.
