Hand-Painted Talavera Style Appetizer Dish from Mexico, "Talavera Spiral"
Featuring vibrant, hand-painted floral motifs, this gorgeous appetizer dish is designed by Mexican artisan Pedro Tecayehuatl. He works in the traditional style of Talavera handicrafts, crafting the dish of ceramic with four crescent-shaped compartments that surround a central bowl.
Talavera is a distinctive art form brought to Mexico by artisans from Talavera de la Reina, Spain. The ceramic artisans of Puebla, Mexico then incorporated Chinese designs, thus creating the blue and oyster-white patterns traditionally associated with Talavera Poblana. Today there are also more "contemporary" designs that include yellow, green, orange, mauve, black and red.
National and international conventions require that a rigorous procedure be followed in the elaboration of authentic Talavera-style ceramics. Each individual piece will be slightly different, and therefore a unique work of art.
