Visions of Africa: Tamegroute
Colors are more vivid in Africa, and nowhere more so than in local industry. The small village of Tamegroute, south of Zagora on the edge of the Sahara Desert, lives and breathes pottery. Moroccan pottery is famous all over the world, and each region has its own distinctive patterns and colors. The green glazed pieces are unique to Tamegroute and are made from a combination of copper and local minerals.
