Morocco’s four pottery centres are each known by the colour of the clay they produce. The red clay used to form these little soldiers is produced in Wadi Lan, where the rich, cardinal soil is ideal for terra cotta production. Artisans dry the cups in the sun, fire, glaze and then fire them again in outdoor kilns.
Glazed in white or teal, the lacquer and clay material insulate both hot and cold contents equally well. Perfect for mint tea, cocktails, or even water, beldi cups add a rustic touch to dinner parties and garden soirees.
Best to hand-wash due to the porous nature of the terracotta. It is normal to see fine feathering cracks in the glaze.
