How It's Made

After each dish/saucer is molded from a mixture of raw clay it is ready to be cured using a double-bake and high-heat firing process. The cookware is first baked in a high-fire kiln at 1500˚- 1700˚F. The 2nd bake is done at the same high-heat. This bake occurs after the artwork has been hand painted on and the protective glaze has tediously been applied both inside and out of each dish. This glossy glaze protects the ceramic and hand painted imagery(allowing it to be both water and intense heat proof). The finish also draws out all of the colors and provides a true forever shine. This is quality made functional cookware crafted by true artisans.
All of our ceramic dinnerware and bakeware are handmade by true fair-trade artisans of Guanajuato Mexico.

Artisan Story

Talavera artistry is a popular Mexican painting style originally used by artisans from Puebla, Tlaxcala, Atlixco, Cholula, and Tecali. The indicator colors of this Mexican style is usually 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.
