Discover the Timeless Beauty of Customizable Mosaic Wall Art – A Celebration of Handcrafted Tiles and Mid Century Style.
Elevate your space with our exquisite Mosaic Wall Art, a true testament to the artistry and cultural heritage of traditional Moroccan craftsmanship. Handcrafted with meticulous attention to detail, this stunning piece exemplifies the rich diversity of Moroccan handcrafts, combining intricate design, high-quality materials, and vibrant colors.
Each mosaic art piece is a labor of love, handcrafted by skilled artisans who possess a deep-rooted passion for their craft. The process begins with clay sourced exclusively from Fes City, a place known as "Ben Jellik." The clay is carefully prepared, dried, and meticulously shaped into flower vases, jars, plates, and other bespoke products, keeping alive the age-old traditions passed down through generations.
Once shaped, the handmade products undergo a rigorous firing process in an oven, reaching temperatures of 2000°C. This ensures their strength and durability, allowing them to withstand the test of time. The next step involves painting the products with natural-based colors, derived from precious natural resources. These hues, ranging from captivating blues to vibrant reds and deep blacks, evoke a sense of fortune, elegance, and sophistication.
To achieve a glossy finish and enhance their longevity, the products are coated with a special material. They are then returned to the oven to bake on burned wood, ensuring that they are ready for daily use. These masterfully crafted pieces are designed to withstand both hot and cold water, allowing you to enjoy their beauty while immersing yourself in their functionality.
Moving on to Zellige, a captivating art form derived from the Arabic word "zellij," the mosaic tiles are expertly placed by skilled Nekkach artisans. Drawing inspiration from ancient references such as Karaouiyn and the king's palaces, they arrange the tiles in mesmerizing geometric patterns. This intricate workmanship creates a breathtaking visual display that transports you to a world where history and art seamlessly converge.
To preserve the integrity of the design, a special material called "La resin" or "cola sima" is applied, adding the final touches to the mosaic. Once dry, the artwork is flipped to reveal the stunning Zellige pattern, a testament to the craftsmanship and artistry that embodies the spirit of Fes City.
By acquiring these remarkable pieces, you not only bring timeless beauty into your home but also contribute to the preservation and revival of a dying craft. Your support enables skilled artisans to continue their legacy, bridging the gap between the past and the present.
