The Artisan Process
This unique ceramic sculpture is hand sculpted from clay that is then high-fired in a large kiln. The ceramic sculpture goes through a double firing process. The 1st firing allows the raw clay to dry and harden before it is hand-painted with Lead-Free paint. The 2nd firing is done in a high-fire kiln with a protective glaze finish. The glossy protective glaze coat is fired in a high-fire kiln where temperatures reach 1200* - 1500*F. Indoor or outdoor display, hand painted, one of a kind, each piece may vary slightly, fair trade artisan crafted. Each ceramic sculpture is kiln fired with a glossy durable finish safe for outdoor display.
Artisan Talavera Style
Talavera style is a popular Mexican style used by crafters from Puebla, Tlaxcala, Atlixco, Cholula, and Tecali. The indicator colors of this Mexican style are typically blue and white, but 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.
