Artisan Story
Talavera. A Complex and Composite Cultural Art-form.

Areas of Central Mexico like where our Tierra studio is located, within the state of Guanajuato have high quality natural clay which is pulled from the earth and used to create all of our Terracotta molds.

Once the various molds are kiln dried the artisans then use a fusion of both Talavera and Majolica painting techniques to embellish our sculptures, bowls, pots and more with vibrantly colored geometric and floral patterns. Both Talavera and Majolica painting techniques originated in Spain but greatly expanded when brought to Mexico and have continued grow with every new generation of artisans since the 16th century. The Tierra Collection celebrates this artisan tradition and every piece of Earthenware we create is lead free, intended to be used and enjoyed both indoor or outdoor.

Talavera style is a popular Mexican style used by crafters from Puebla, Tlaxcala, Atlixco, Cholula, and Tecali. The indicator colors of this Mexican style is usually blue and white, but in recent decades artisans have added yellow, black, green, orange, and mauve to the style color palette. The color palette is made with natural pigments to get the right shades for the pottery.
