Artisan Story
Talavera, A Cultural Artistry. 

Each sculptural ceramic luminary is individually hand-painted by celebrated Talavera artisans of Guanajuato Mexico. The artisan's technique is inspired by the old-world painting style known as Talavera and Majolica, their talent in this artistry dates back centuries and has been passed down from one generation to the next. In doing so the artistry has also transformed from one generation to the next with each artisan innovating and modifying the colors, patterns, and textures.

Talavera Artistry

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.
