Tamegroute pottery is completely made by hand in the traditional way without modern technology. The clay is made from the earth that comes from the nearby River Draa, This particular clay contains small grains of rock/sand which creates the beautiful imperfections on the surface of the ceramics, the pottery is then hand-dipped into the glazing mixture giving the pottery it’s distinctive green or yellow color.
Once this process is complete the pottery is baked in one of the seven ovens in Tamegroute at a high temperature and if you stood just outside of the village the dark distinctive smoke from these ovens can be seen from afar. The unique process is like no other and each piece produced bares its own marks, patterns, and traits.
