The History of Talavera Ceramics
Talavera pottery from Puebla Mexico

Ceramics have had a prevailing place in the lives of the Mexican people for centuries. The earthenware vessels and utensils found in archaeological ruins across Mexico demonstrate the techniques used in their ceramics: the use of clay, the knowledge of primitive firing techniques, and their means of adding color and designs.

Puebla's Talavera decended from Arabic-Andalusian tradition and began in Spain in the ninth century, when the influence of the Arabic culture was passed on to Spanish potters. In Talavera de la Reina Spain, it became very popular and took on the characteristic stylistic forms toward the 16th century.

Between 1550 and 1570 a number of Spanish potters from the city of Talavera de la Reina arrived in Puebla Mexico. The blending of societies allowed the indigenous people to learn new techniques, and the combination of styles gave new life to Mexican earthenware. Poblano Talavera is the product of the fusion of these styles and influences. By the 18th century, talavera workshops began evolving into actual factories, resulting in a rapid and extensive distribution that reached almost every corner of Mexico.

Today the craft is perpetuated by individual families of master craftsmen, still performing the age-old rituals and techniques that have been passed down through the centuries. There are only a few workshops in Mexico - all located in Puebla - that offer authentic Talavera pottery made accordingly to the craftsmanship legacy.


Talavera etc is a beautiful little shop in Puerto Vallarta Mexico that specializes in the finest handcrafted Mexican ceramic, Talavera pottery and Talavera tile from Puebla Mexico.

Here you will also find that unique home decor or gift item that you've been searching for among tin pieces, woodcarvings from Oaxaca, angels, mermaids, dolls, masks, and other unique folk art pieces from around Mexico.
