Handcrafted Pottery

Handcrafted Pottery

Earthenware pottery is the most common type of Mexican folk art. First made here around 4500 years ago, today it is a melding of the newer, Spanish techniques of glazing and firing with the ancient Indian shapes, colors and patterns. We feature the Barro Policromado from Izucar de Matamoros, especially the renowned designs of the Castillo family. The family makes our multi-colored Menorah candelabras, too. Recently, we have expanded our selection to also include the terra cotta nativity figurines from Naples, Italy. They are another handcrafted pottery tradition that goes back several centuries.

This category of Mexican pottery includes handcrafted sculptures, candlesticks, candelabra holding three candles or more, menorahs, trees of life, Talavera spoon rests, and day of the dead skeleton art. They are made by artisans living in the state of Puebla, Mexico, and especially in the town of Izucar de Matamoros.
