TALAVERA CUP

Qty

$88.00

These finely crafted cups, ideal for mezcal or wine, are handmade in the famous traditional Talavera technique, recognizable from its brilliant milky white glaze and boldly colorful detailing.

 

Since 1997, the designation has been reserved for only certain ceramicists producing in the Puebla or Talavera regions, who conform to strict guidelines and traditional techniques.

Description

Talavera clay is a unique mix of two types of sand found in the Puebla region, one black and one white. Once sifted for impurities and mixed with the perfect amount of water, air bubbles are worked out of the compound as it is firmed under the bare feet of artisans. Pieces are raised on a spinning potter’s wheel and dried for eight to twelve days. They are then fired in kilns that burn at 850 degrees centigrade, before being glazed by hand in the iconic opaque milky white glaze for which Talavera pottery is known. Details inspired by organic forms are picked out in brilliant colors, derived from natural pigments, before a second firing which reaches scorching heats of 1050 degrees.

 

The Talavera technique is practiced by only a handful of certified ceramics workshops, who produce according to a tradition which traces its heritage through Medieval Spain and the Moorish Empire; Italian Renaissance art; Middle Eastern Caliphates and Ming Dynasty porcelains. The purchase of this piece not only adds a touch of timeless class to any home, but also supports the artisans who dedicate their lives to keeping this technique and its rich heritage alive.
