A flower blossoms with scintillating beauty, spreading its petals throughout the ivory background of this sugar and creamer set. Like a kaleidoscope in blue undertones, the magnificent design is by Pedro Tecayehuatl, expert in the legendary art of Talavera-style ceramics from Puebla. Featuring black contours, the cobalt blue sugar and creamer are crafted by hand.

Talavera is a distinctive art form brought to Mexico by artisans from Talavera de la Reina, Spain. The ceramic artisans of Puebla, Mexico then incorporated Chinese designs, thus creating the blue and oyster-white patterns traditionally associated with Talavera Poblana. Today there are also more 'contemporary' designs that include yellow, green, orange, mauve, black and red.

National and international conventions require that a rigorous procedure be followed in the elaboration of authentic Talavera-style ceramics. Each individual piece will be slightly different, and therefore a unique work of art.
