Clay, a material unique to Fes, is mined only there, at a location known as Ben Jellik. The first step is transporting the clay here, where it will sit for 20 days to dry. Afterward, we use a heavy hammer to smash it into smaller pieces, and after another day of drying, we soak it in water for two days. Next, there are those who sort through the clay, removing any rocks or other debris before passing it on. Because of its proximity to the sun, Fes is the only place on Earth where you can experience this kind of action.
Other workers then shape the clay dough into flower vases, jars, plates, and so on, a skill passed down through generations.
Then we bake the handmade items at 2000 degrees for 8 hours. Next, we'll be painting the goods to match the colors of the walls, tables, and fortune cookies.
We use dyes made from plants and minerals to give our goods a more authentic look. Horse hair is used to make paintbrushes. They employ many hues, including blue, red, black, etc.
After they are finished, the products are coated with a material that makes them shiny before being baked again for 8 hours on burned wood. The paint holds up to both hot and cold water, and you can use them indefinitely.
Next, Nekkach is given Zellige after it has been painted and baked a second time; the type of pattern used on Zellige is determined by its final location. He lays them out backward in a geometric design inspired by historic sites like Karaouiyn and royal palaces.
When they are dry, we apply a material called "la resina" or "cola sima" and hang them up to dry. The Zellige pattern is revealed after they are flipped to their front sides. Clay artisans in Fes, Morocco, created that.
