Painted by hand with vibrant, colorful floral motifs and dark blue dividers, this beautiful appetizer dish is designed by Pedro Tecayehuatl. He works in the traditional Talavera style of Puebla, crafting the square dish of ceramic. This dish is divided into four sections that surround 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.
