A very popular pottery artist is Khaled Ben Slimane who is from Tunisian. Despite being born in Tunisian Slimane became devoted in pottery and studied also in Japan and Spain. Slimanes pottery has his own original feel to it yet is inspired by Andalusian themes and the Berber traditions of Sejenane and Jerba. Culture is very present in his pieces of pottery as his pieces of art are most commonly decorated with Roman motifs and Islamic calligraphy.
