La Talavera de Puebla - Artes de México


Puebla’s ceramic tradition is an art form with historic ties to the the convent kitchens, building façades and the workshops -  the spaces that form a world where reality and fantasy mingle, and the hands that produce, buy and sell are joined with the hands that paint their dreams onto clay pots. This issue offers a glimpse into a fascinating world of the Talavera pottery of Puebla.
