Mariano Torres

Talavera is any handmade pottery, tiles and other ceramics and arts created by the earth's materials. Born from the Spanish pottery tradition called Majolica, this word had originated in Italy and refers to a process that the Italians used in the 14th Century to produce ceramics.

The name "Talavera" comes from the Spanish town, Talavera de la Reina. It is reported that artisans from this town traveled to Mexico in the 2nd half of the 16th century during Spain's colonization of the Americas. Their initial destination was Puebla, the city now most closely associated with Talavera tile and ceramics. The unique skills that these craftsmen brought with them can be traced to influences of Italy, North Africa, China and Northern Europe.

As commerce and travel increasingly interconnected different parts of the world during this colonial period, the products of these Spanish ceramicists became well known and admired throughout many parts of Latin America. It was during this period that the name "Talavera" became synonymous with the unique tile and ceramic designs flowing from the hands of these skilled craftsmen.

The clay is molded by hand or foot, then shaped and dried. The pieces are then fired at an extreme heat (850 degrees Celcius). Once they cool, they are submerged in glaze, which brings their color to life. Once dry, pieces are quite fragile and must be sanded and fired to prepare them for the decorative process.

Pieces are first coated with white enamel and then painted individually, always by hand, sometimes aided by stencils.

Caring for your Talavera Vase

Thankfully, talavera vases are a low-maintenance home decoration! Simply dust lightly and regularly and give your vase an occasional wash with mild soapy water and soft cloth. Never use abrasive cleaners or materials.

Decorate your life

We believe that there's nothing more important than making life, our surroundings and our interactions with each other as beautiful, colorful and caring as possible. Design. Decorate. Live. Laugh.

Make every corner of life full of vivacious color and elegance.


Decorate your home

Simply leave your talavera vase to stand alone in all it's glory in a hallway or living space or add fresh or dry flowers to bring color and aliveness.

Add the extra vivacious color and style to an outdoor area, be it right amongst foliage or in a sheltered corner in the garden.

Color alters the mood and atmosphere of every environment, bringing happiness, enhancing your mood and boosting the positive energy in your life. For centuries, home décor has enjoyed playing with different shades and hues. Each color is imbued with certain qualities that can be used creatively to stimulate certain feelings and impressions, such as:

Blue and green colors, particularly in lighter shades can induce calmness and relaxation.

Yellow is a revitalizing color and promotes positive, vibrant energy.

Some orange shades are known to make people cheerful and full of life.

Purple is considered as the wonderful color for providing comfort to your eyes and mind.

Neutral colors are considered as colors of nature and hence, are preferred by homeowners to induce peace and the sense of well being.

While choosing any of these colors, make sure it goes well with the furniture and other decors installed in the room by using color charts and complementing textures.
