The Origins of Talavera Pottery

Talavera pottery dates back to the 16th century when Spanish artisans introduced their ceramic techniques to the indigenous people of Mexico. The fusion of these two artistic traditions resulted in a unique and distinctive style, which includes the charming Talavera pottery animals we admire today. As you explore our collection, you will notice a striking similarity between the pottery animals and the designs found on our blue Talavera pottery and Talavera mugs.

The Craftsmanship Behind Talavera Pottery Animals

The process of creating Talavera pottery animals begins with skilled artisans who mold the clay by hand. Once the desired shape has been formed, the piece is left to dry before it is fired in a kiln at high temperatures. This process strengthens the pottery and prepares it for glazing.

The glazing process is where the true artistry of Talavera pottery shines. The artisans hand-paint each pottery animal with a range of colorful, lead-free glazes, incorporating intricate patterns and designs that are reminiscent of the green Mexican glassware found in our collection.
