The Artisan Process Behind Creating our Talavera Pet Bowls.
Our hand-painted ceramic dog bowls used the entire Talavera color palette to create majestic imagery on them. They have the patterns and shapes influenced by traditional Talavera & Majolica artistry. Our dog bowls are twice baked in a high-fire kiln at 1200-1500 degrees Fahrenheit. The 2nd bake is done to the bowl with protective glaze finish to make it safe for holding food.

Each of our Talavera pattens bowl is different, giving each of them character and individuality.
