Moroccan craftsmanship is rightfully reflected in these posh and refined bathroom and kitchen sinks. In Morocco, these sinks have a long history of sprucing up the interior of homes. The vivid and quirky color of the sink is derived from the awe-inspiring view of the Moroccan sunset. These sinks are famous for their intricate sea and fish scale design on the surface. This sink, highlighted with a stunning and thick brass rim, also made in Morocco, will provide a touch of exoticism to your decor.
Because each sink is individually crafted by a separate craftsman in Morocco, some deviations from the one pictured may occur. Part of a vanity set, the sink's bowl protrudes from the work area. Due to the fact that the sink and counter are a single, streamlined piece, the overall effect is one of elegance and simplicity. The built-in washbasins are convenient in both the kitchen and the bathroom.
These sinks from Morocco are handcrafted, so they won't chip or peel quickly after installation like mass-produced sinks might. In most cases, standard drain sizes can be found in sinks. It's versatile enough to function as either a countertop sink or an undermount sink that's simply dropped into place. Their durability is ensured by a thick coating of glaze. The stunning design of these sinks guarantees that they will be the focal point of any kitchen or bathroom.
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.
