Artisans Solidaires Kasserine
FOOTED KANOUN POTTERY
Deliberately unpolished, this footed bowl traditionally used for cooking makes a stylish centerpiece for the modern table with an unusual shape and raw finish. The Artisans Solidaires Kasserine source their clay from a local mountain and work it by hand to craft this unique, artistic piece. Meet the artisan collective >
12″D x 6″H
Care: Do not put in the dishwasher or microwave. Scrub clean with a soft sponge. If used for cooking, remove the smell by rubbing the kanoun with half a lemon sprinkled with baking soda.
Based in the Kasserine region of Tunisia along the Algerian border, this collective of mostly women artisans uses natural materials and ancestral techniques to create baskets, rugs and pottery imbued with local terroir. Their pieces are inspired by the patterns and shapes of the traditional Tunisian home updated for modern aesthetics.
