Discover Pottery Algeria

In Algeria, pottery differs from one region to the next, meaning the work of each region is very varied. Though manufacturing processes are virtually the same, the result is always something different. In Kabylia for example you'll find red clay adorned with lots of different patterns. In the south of Adrar, you can find unusual shaped objects black in colour and extremely different from those produced in the north. Mount Nementcha pottery is usually made out of rose-coloured clay and decorated with brown drawings. Although it used to be the case that pottery was only exchanged between families, you can now find it on sale in most shops.
