Moroccan Cobalt Blue

The famous cobalt blue is the signature of Fès pottery.  This imperial city is known as the handicraft capital.

You can admire superb collections in the Dar Batha Museum.  This Hispano-Moorish palace dating from the end of the 14th century houses some admirable collections of traditional art from Fez.

After being baked for 24 hours and then slowly cooled, the pottery is covered with white tin-glaze. The craftsmen use a secret proportion and combination of several ingredients to obtain the lovely and unique blue.
