Ceramics in the El Noqbi neighborhood

Lyra and I wanted to look at ceramics and found a recommendation to visit the El Noqbi neighborhood on the northeast side of the medina. Art Naji is probably the best known spot, partly because it is so visible on googlemaps. There are many workshops that sell pottery on the streets that radiate out from the bus stop and from Art Naji. The workshop allows photos.

We looked at thousands of pieces from tiny to huge. We selected two small bowls and went to the counter where we found that they offer only fixed prices. (For the reason we left, see my “Good to Know about Morocco” post, coming soon. As soon as we left Art Naji, we were approached by a neighboring merchant who showed us his smaller, somewhat less organized studio. We found two bowls that we liked and paid a price we thought reasonable.

I am a retired archaeologist and I like to travel, especially to places where you can walk along the shore or watch birds. My husband Jonathan and I travel for more than half the year every year, seeing all the places that we haven't gotten to yet.
