Combining traditional Talavera handicrafts with Christian faith, Mexican artisan Pedro Tecayehuatl creates this beautiful wall cross. The cross is crafted of ceramic, featuring intricate and colorful floral motifs that are painted by hand.
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.
