Azoura 12" Salad/Pasta Bowl

Product Specifications

The Azoura pattern features delicate blue floral artwork that evokes antique Spanish pieces, Turkish Ottoman style, or perhaps the Greek Islands.  But at heart, blue and white is the hallmark of Tunisia, where these pieces are made, and Azoura attempts to capture the soothing calm of the Mediterranean Sea.

Each piece is 100% hand-made and hand-painted earthenware (also known as Majolica.)

All paints and glazes are food safe.

Dishwasher safe.

Can be used in the microwave for light reheating, but use oven mitts when handling as the relatively porous earthenware absorbs heat.

Oven-safe at up to 250° F for light reheating.  Not for baking, stove-top cooking, or freezing.

Made in Tunisia by adults over 21 who are not segregated by gender.  Working conditions in the studio are excellent, with proper lighting and ventilation.  Wages are well above Tunisian peers and minimum wage, and the workers fully participate in the government's social programs.
