TALAVERA

Moorish-Spanish origin. Talavera pottery of Puebla, Mexico is a type of majolica pottery, which is distinguished by a milky-white glaze. Authentic Talavera pottery only comes from the city of Puebla and the nearby communities of Atlixco, Cholula, and Tecali, because of the quality of the natural clay found there and the tradition of production which goes back to the 16th century. Production of this ceramic became highly developed in Puebla because of the availability of fine clays and the demand for tiles from the newly established churches and monasteries in the area. The industry had grown sufficiently that by the mid-17th century, standards and guilds had been established which further improved the quality, leading Puebla into what is called the “golden age” of Talavera pottery (from 1650 to 1750). It features a colorful living and organic motifs.

SIMBOLISM | In our collection Flora y Plata, Talavera symbolizes the passion and exuberance. The vivid colours and organic motifs represent the exuberant vegetation of the tropical jungles: the savage sounds, smells, flavors and colours. The Talavera pieces also represent the passion of the voluptuous Moorish-Spanish heritage.

RED CLAY OR TERRACOTA

Of Indian origin, was traditionally used by the Aztec and Maya, among many others. It is characterized by its reddish-brown color and porous texture, as it can be molded easily in fantastic designs of almost any shape.

SIMBOLISM | Terracota is a natural element, coming straight from the Earth. In our collection Terra y Plata, small Terracota pieces have been enriched by precious floral motifs, handmade piece by piece. They symbolize the origins, the roots in Mother Earth. Making each piece a tribute to motherhood and maternity, to the origin to birth and to the life.
