A Passion for Traditional Ceramics

The Spanish introduced talavera ceramics to Mexico five centuries ago, but local potters have adapted European techniques with indigenous methods and styles. The roots are still recognizable, with its white base glaze, but the original blue decorated patterns now often include a blaze of other colors.

If you love this style of ceramics, a visit to the Arte San Gabriel pottery in Dolores Hildago will give you an even great appreciation of how these pieces are made. With more than 40 years' experience in talavera production, you can appreciate their passion for the craft and their dedication to quality. They have standard pieces in their catalogue, but the company is also always interested in taking on commission work.
