Artisan Crafted Ceramic 13 Inch Oval Serving Plate, "Zacatlan Flowers"$39.99
Flowers blossom with an exuberant feast of colors on a platter designed in the Talavera style of the state of Puebla. The motifs are painted by hand over the ivory-color ceramic plate with a palette that includes yellow-orange, blue, and green flowers over a crisscross network of dots and crosses. Bordered by a black honeycomb, this oval plate comes from the 'Zacatlán Flowers' collection designed by Pedro Tecayehuatl.
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.
Handcrafted Ceremonial Style Molcajete Mortar, "Ceremonial Tradition"$94.95
Grupon Comonfort presents this traditional footed or stone mortar, crafted by hand from volcanic basalt. The three-footed design is like those traditionally used for ceremonial purposes as well as for food preparation. The pestle, called a , is used to grind or crush the foodstuffs in the molcajete. The molcajete can also be used as a unique serving dish for salsa or guacamole.
The artisans recommend that the molcajete be "cured" before the first use. To cure the molcajete, place some dried beans, corn or rice in the bowl and grind with the pestle until pulverized. Allow the pulverized grain to sit for 15 minutes. Once this has been done, the molcajete can be hand washed and allowed to dry. This step will ensure that any stone dust remaining from the carving process does not affect the food.
Hand Blown Colorful 8 oz Wine Glasses (Set of 6), "Confetti Festival"$97.99
Wine glasses feature colorful accents in bright confetti colors. The set of six is handcrafted by Javier and Efren, using glass-blowing techniques perfected over more than thirty years.
Please note that as each piece is individually handmade, slight variations in the shape and size of the glass are likely, making every item a unique example of blown-glass craftsmanship. Tiny bubbles within the surface attest to their authenticity.
