Mexican Talavera


Colorful 9.75 Inch Round Talavera Serving Dish Scallop Edges
$49.95
Talavera Pottery
Handcrafted in Mexico

Around the area of Puebla, there are two of the most impressive volcanoes in all of Mexico - Iztaccihuatl (Is-Tah-She-Wha-Tell) and Popocateptl (Popo-Caw-Tay-Pet-Tell).  However, this part of Mexico also has another legend of Talavera pottery.  As you look at the many buildings such as churches and monasteries, you will see this type of pottery used as adornment, adding vibrant color.  However, Talavera pottery is also found in most kitchens and on patios. 

Talavera pottery was first introduced by the Spanish but interestingly, the term used, Talavera is more commonly heard in Mexico than it is in its originating country of Spain.  Of all tin-glazed ceramic, Talavera is the oldest.  While its beauty is one of the great aspects of this pottery, the fact that the same methods from 16th century are still used today, adds interest. 

During Colonial times, the capital of Mexico, now called Mexico City, was known as Nueva Espana.  It was there that this earthenware was produced and such an important part of the economy.  Shortly after Nueva Espana was established, the production of Talavera pottery, tiles, and other ceramic ware began, sometime around 1531.
