Details

Working in the time-honored tradition of Talavera ceramics, Ivan Martinez creates this pretty decorative plate. The plate is crafted from ceramic and painted by hand with 'La Calavera Catrina' before receiving the final glaze.

The original "La Calavera Catrina" was a zinc etching created by the artist José Guadalupe Posada in Mexico around 1910. Posada created the character, a female skeleton with an elegant hat, as a satirical portrait of Mexican natives who aspired to European style and denied their own heritage. The catrina has since become an emblem of Mexico's Day of the Dead celebration and a popular folk art subject.

"Cheerful"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I came across this beautiful talavera piece by chance. I actually already own another talavera sun. However, upon seeing this one, I knew I had to grab it. Ive seen plenty of talavera work but this one brought me instant joy. Unfortunately, it wasnt available at the moment. A month or two later I received a notice it was back in stock and immediately bought it. Did have some difficulties with FedEx but thankfully, I was able to get my package. Thank you Novica for teaming up with artisans around the world and to the artesanos who added the beautiful card of San Luis Potosí

"Very nice piece"

Bright Sol is not real vibrant like most of my talavera, more pastel colors, but still a beautiful piece. I hung it on a medium rich blue wall and it really pops. Lots of details, with a variety of colors. Love this sun.

"Beautiful, but toothbrush holes very small"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This piece is very pretty and matches perfectly my Spanish Bungalow bathroom perfectly, colors are vibrant, design is pretty. However, the 3 holes for the toothbrushes are very very small and irregularly shaped. I have to twist the brush around to get it to go in, and it will not accept anything except a very narrow handle. But it is so pretty I dont mind, but know this going in if you use larger sized toothbrushes.
