With this intricately designed and enormous wall water fountain, you can recreate the peaceful atmosphere of sitting by the side of a moving river in the comfort of your own home. Wonderful Zellige Tile Fountains from Morocco are often crafted by hand in relatively modest workshops. The Zellij tile art of Morocco is renowned for its exceptionally intricate designs, which are created by cutting hundreds of individual tile pieces by hand and then arranging them in intricate patterns. Every detail is unique and one of a kind, and it takes inspiration from Moroccan culture to create its patterns.

 

The clay used for making these tiles 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 processed clay is then baked in the oven 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 shiny material and glazed for another 8 hours to give them a sturdy texture. The Zellige can withstand any temperature and the colors remain long-lasting.

 

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.
