NOVICA, in association with National Geographic, searches the world to work directly with the finest artisan designers. Banded by borders of cobalt blue, sunflowers bloom in a fiesta of color, their bright petals nestled amid emerald leaves. The Castillo Family paints the blossoms on a handsome, octagonal flowerpot. Crafted in the style of Talavera pottery, the clay is cast in molds. The piece is fired, then submerged in glaze. Once dry, the elaborate patterns are sketched and painstakingly painted by hand. Finally, the pot is high-fired for six hours to achieve a glassy finish. Although true Talavera is produced only in the city of Puebla, the Talavera-style ceramics crafted in Dolores Hidalgo are recognized the world over. Because each piece is individually crafted, each is absolutely unique. The motifs could differ slightly from those pictured.
