I ordered this to use as a memorial urn
This piece is stunning! A true work of art. The craftsmanship is unbelievably beautiful. It is just as pictured and arrived packaged with great care and in perfect condition.
Unique and Pretty
I bought this because I just loved the style and bright colors. Very pleased, still trying to decide what to put inside, buttons for right now.
This is a somewhat heavy soapstone sculptured jar with elephants around the lid and the bowl. It is a really fine piece of workmanship. The sculptured elephants are etched very nicely and somewhat delicately. I really like my jar. Thank you.
"This is my talent. I don't know where my skill and love for it comes from. My heart says it's because I've seen and been involved with my parents' work since I was young."

Hand-Painted Talavera-Style Ceramic Decorative Jar, "Magnificent Bouquet"
Designed by Mexican artisan Pedro Tecayehuatl, this decorative jar will bring the beauty of Talavera ceramics to your home. The jar is crafted of ceramic, painted by hand with intricate, colorful floral motifs.
Talavera is a distinctive art form brought to Mexico by artisans from Talavera de la Reina, Spain. The ceramic artisans of Puebla, Mexico then incorporated Chinese designs, thus creating the blue and oyster-white patterns traditionally associated with Talavera Poblana. Today there are also more "contemporary" designs that include yellow, green, orange, mauve, black and red.
National and international conventions require that a rigorous procedure be followed in the elaboration of authentic Talavera-style ceramics. Each individual piece will be slightly different, and therefore a unique work of art.
