Mohamed Boumehdi was the "official" ceramist of the architect Fernand Pouillon who entrusted him with the task of restoring the frescoes of the houses and palaces he was rehabilitating, such as the Hotel El-Djazaïr or the Villa des Arcades. Today, the Boumehdi family's workshop-boutique is certainly one of the most interesting, if not the most original, places to buy local crafts. His pottery in shimmering colours, skillfully blending tradition and modernity, is known throughout Algeria. The master's children perpetuate the memory of their father, who died in 2006, by nurturing his techniques and art. The main workshop has been divided into two, now owned by two of his ceramic craftsmen's sons, Tewfik Boumehdi and Rachid Boumehdi. A third workshop was opened above; it belongs to Hashemia Boumehdi, his third son.
