Mexico's Alonso Luis says, 'I come from Puebla and create traditional majolica ceramics in the Talavera style. Our work is carried out the way it's been done here for hundreds of years. I am concerned about the environment, its conservation and its rescue. This is reflected in our ceramics, as everything we make is lead free.' Talavera was brought to Mexico by artisans from Talavera de la Reina, Spain, already influenced by Moorish designs. True Talavera requires a rigorous procedure and is produced only in Puebla.What is Worldstock?The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design.
