For a dreamy addition to your home decor, this decorative vase is designed by Mexican artisan Pedro Tecayehuatl. Working in the style of Talavera handicrafts, he crafts the vase of ceramic and hand-paints it with intricate and colorful floral motifs.
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.
