Blue Floral Dinnerware
I was trying to find a refined and unique gift from Thailand, and am very satisfied with my pick. The glaze looks very good, and subtlely shows the workings of the celadon ceramic. An exquisite piece of artwork with nice design!
Our purchase of Alonso Luis Talavera began nearly 20 years ago in a San Miguel de Allende gallery, and we continued to collect several pieces while visiting Mexico over the next ten years. In 2007 we had the enormous privilege of visiting the small factory itself in a town outside of Puebla. Mr. Luis himself graciously escorted us through the factory and showed us the steps to create his treasures, starting from the pile of clay outside through the final firing. As we no longer travel to Mexico, we are delighted to find AL's Talavera at Novica! We use our elegant Talavera plates and bowls and mugs daily and do not hesitate putting them into the dishwasher. We also display AL Talavera both on plate stands and behind glass cabinet doors. Guests never fail to comment on its beauty, expecting it to be European, mainly Italian, rather than Mexican. Whether it be for a special display item or daily use, I highly recommend the beauty and serviceability of AL Talavera! We love it!
Plumeria is one of my favorite flowers, so when I saw these, I just had to have them. They came nicely gifted wrapped, and well packed. They're just as described..well done! Very happy with my purchase. Thank you!
