Details

Alonso Luis uses the same legendary techniques that make Talavera ceramics unique to craft this exquisite pair of soup bowls. The original composition on the enameled bowls is painted by hand with the characteristic cobalt blue, and the Mexican artisan adds the harmonious complement of jade green for a dramatic sense of depth. A single flower centers the interior.

"Als entire collection is stunning!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Our purchase of Alonso Luis Talavera began nearly 20 years ago in a San Miguel de Allende gallery, and we continued to collect several pieces while visiting Mexico over the next ten years. In 2007 we had the enormous privilege of visiting the small factory itself in a town outside of Puebla. Mr. Luis himself graciously escorted us through the factory and showed us the steps to create his treasures, starting from the pile of clay outside through the final firing. As we no longer travel to Mexico, we are delighted to find ALs Talavera at Novica! We use our elegant Talavera plates and bowls and mugs daily and do not hesitate putting them into the dishwasher. We also display AL Talavera both on plate stands and behind glass cabinet doors. Guests never fail to comment on its beauty, expecting it to be European, mainly Italian, rather than Mexican. Whether it be for a special display item or daily use, I highly recommend the beauty and serviceability of AL Talavera! We love it!

"This is so pretty that I find myself looking at it"

This is a particularly pretty plate. I collect plates and this one stands out as being a bit unusual. I have also used it a few times to serve cake and it never fails to cause comments about its beauty. The picture just doesnt do it justice. Its exquisite.

I absolutely love this platter. I use it to display fresh fruit on my kitchen counter. Having the fruit on this beautiful plate encourages my family to eat more fresh fruit.

"Beautiful craftmanship"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I bought this after buying a bowl from this artist before This was beautiful. Glad it came with holes in the back as I have t decided whether to display it on the wall or use it as a small serving plate on the table for special occasions. This talavera is amazing. The workmanship is amazing. I cannot afford a whole table but I recommend to anyone getting a piece for your table.
