ceramics I

Next stop was a ceramics place where we could see some of the producion. In the yard behind the store they produced the clay. That is, they brought in a very dry clay from the Atlas Mountains near by and this man mixes it with water until it has the exact right consistency.

Square platters drying in the sun. Many square platters indeed, they were probably 6x6 inches is size.

Her is the kiln, which will hold about  800 pieces when full. since it was empty we got to go inside.

Looking down on my toes I can see the space underneath the firing room where the fire is lit which heats up the ceramics to the desired temperature.

It takes about a day to get there, a day of firing and then a day for cooling.

Chimney holes in the ceiling, looking up.
This is quite a large production spot, the first one of its kind near to Agadir.

  1. What do you think. I received a letter from rolex watches. Customs today and they have confiscated breitling replica sale. I will send you a copy of the notice if you want. Rolex uses only top quality materials, especially for its rolex replica sale collections, so you get a fantastic piece of natural replica watches sale that is both legible and useful. One of the appeals of this watch is the accumulation of rare materials in one product, as it combines 18ct white gold, diamonds, and meteorite, all of which are considered precious materials. While the actual rolex replica uk scarcity of these materials can be debated, one of the purposes of integrating these materials together is to enhance the inherent worth of the watch. How can you get it to me. This is the rolex watches store I have ordered and the other rolex replica watches arrived in just a week. This replica watches sale has been sitting in customs for 12 days.
