This tray is exquisite and far exceeds expectations. It would make a stunning, yet practical, gift. I would happily pay $100--the tray is that beautiful.
Hand-Painted Talavera Style Appetizer Dish from Mexico, "Talavera Spiral"$59.99
Featuring vibrant, hand-painted floral motifs, this gorgeous appetizer dish is designed by Mexican artisan Pedro Tecayehuatl. He works in the traditional style of Talavera handicrafts, crafting the dish of ceramic with four crescent-shaped compartments that surround a central bowl.
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.
Andean Sunflower Theme Reverse-Painted Glass Tray, "Blue Andean Mandala"$77.99
Reverse-painted glass, introduced to Peru in the 17th century, is now a revered Peruvian art form. The Ortiz Family brings to this craft a unique conflux of influences. Their repetitive geometrical and symmetrical patterns owe their origins to Inca pottery, but their coloration is drawn from the multi-hued blue and gold tiles found in North Africa and Spain. Our glass-topped wooden tray is handcrafted in the family’s workshop in Peru.
