Ceramic Pitcher in Emerald Speckle


Ceramic pitcher or vase handcrafted in the pottery villages of Tunis in Egypt's Faiyum Oasis. Features a blue and brown paint speckle and emerald-dipped rim.

A two-hour drive outside of Cairo, Faiyum is an oasis made up of three lakes in the middle of the desert, and home to some of Egypt's oldest towns, antiquities, and over the last 30 years, a hub for artists, writers and the like from around the world. Growing from a pottery school opened in the 1980s, the Tunis Village today is home to an arts center, ten pottery studios, and an annual pottery festival.
