Working in the traditional Talavera art style developed in Puebla, Mexican artisan Pedro Tecayehuatl designs this delightful appetizer dish for your next party or get-together. Crafted of ceramic, the square dish features vibrant, hand-painted floral motifs and green borders. 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.
