The coastal Tunisian town of Nabeul was first settled by the Greeks in the 5th century B.C. By the Roman era several centuries later, Nabeul had already developed a reputation as the center of Tunisia’s pottery industry. The artisans who make our festive pitcher continue that tradition in a studio near the Mediterranean Sea.
Each pitcher is formed on a potter’s wheel using white clay imported from Portugal. Next it’s fired to create a bisquea piece of smooth ceramic that is ready to be glazed. Finally, artisans paint the designs freehand, without using machines, stencils, or decals. No two pieces will be exactly the same. As a pitcher full of sangria or orange juice, as a vase, or as a beautiful serving piece on display in a china cabinet, our Tunisian Hand-painted Pitcher is a one-of-a-kind example of a traditional Tunisian craft.
