Perfect for your next party or get-together, this appetizer dish from Mexico is designed by Pedro Tecayehuatl. He works in the Talavera style of Puebla. The square ceramic dish is painted by hand with vibrant, multicolored floral motifs. This appetizer dish is divided into four sections with a small bowl at the center.
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.
