Amp up the decor of your indoor or outdoor space with the inclusion of this rustic and elegant-looking Royal Blue water fountain. Handmade with the famous mosaic technique of Morocco, the zellige water fountains are not only pleasing to the eyes, but the gentle flow of water creates a serene auditory experience as well. The intricate floral designs and vivid colors enhance their charm.

 

The clay used for making this fountain is a substance that can only be found in Fes City, in a location known as "Ben Jellik." Then the clay is brought to a different location and left to dry for 20 days. After breaking it into little pieces with a big hammer when it is dry, they are left to dry again for an entire day before immersing in water for two days. Then artisans strive to remove any undesired rocks and other impurities from the clay before proceeding further. Then the processed clay is used to make the nuanced patterns depending on where the zellige would be used. Due to the amount of sunlight this place gets, this kind of process can only happen in Fes.

 

The fountains and other artworks are then glazed for 8 hours at 2000°C. Then the natural colors are used to paint the surface with vivid detailing. After that, the products are coated with a shiny material and glazed for another 8 hours to give them a sturdy texture. The Zellige can withstand any temperature, thus you can use both hot and cold water in the Fountains.

 

In the last stage, the zellige is coated with 'La resin' and flipped downwards to dry. After drying, the products get ready to be shipped. This is how Fes Artisans painstakingly make each of these breathtaking pieces of home decor.
