Mexican artisans have been designing and painting pottery for centuries, going back to ancient civilizations. When the Spanish conquered Mexico, they fused the existing techniques and materials with popular designs from Talavera de la Reina, Spain.
Paint your own Mexican tile with inspiration from the Talavera pottery artisans of Puebla, Mexico. Follow their traditional designs or create your own.
