  • History
    Mexican black pottery, also known as barro negro pottery, comes from Oaxaca in Mexico, and is very specific to this region. The clay that is found in this area is of a rare black color, at a density that is perfect for pottery. Traditionally, barro negro is a sooty gray color with a slightly chalky residue, but was revamped in the 1950’s with a beautiful polished finish. Since the inception of this polished look by a potter named Doña Rosa, whose family shop is still going strong in Oaxaca, the gleaming finish of barro negro has ramped up in popularity once more.
    Style
    The black sheen of the Mexican black pottery finish is one of the most distinctive features of this type of pottery, however, there are several other features that also make Mexican black pottery extremely beautiful. The polished surfaces are often carved out or etched with very detailed and intricate patterns and shapes that contrast perfectly with the often-bulbous shape of the pieces themselves. The etchings and carvings have a distinctive Mexican flare about them, and are always carefully crafted by hand.

    1. 1. Production of Talavera ceramic became highly developed in Puebla because of the availability of fine clays and the demand for tiles from the newly established churches and monasteries in the area.
    2. 2. The origin of Talavera pottery begins in China where glazed pottery began. Chinese techniques and designs were brought to Spain via Majorca by the Moors by the end of the 12th century. From there it spread to the rest of Europe, under the name majolica. Spanish craftsmen near Toledo, Spain, adopted and added to the art form.
    3. 3. Further Chinese and Italian influences were incorporated as the craft evolved in Spain, and guilds were formed to regulate the quality Pre-Hispanic cultures had their own tradition of pottery and ceramics, but they did not involve a potter's wheel or glazing.
    4. 4. There are several theories as to how majolica pottery was introduced to Mexico, but the most accepted was that monks who either sent for artisans from Spain or knew how to produce the ceramics themselves.
    5. 5. These monks wanted tiles and other objects to decorate their new monasteries, so to keep up with this demand, either Spanish artists or the monks taught indigenous artists to produce the glazed pottery.
    6. 6. A significant number of secular potters came to Mexico from Seville and Talavera de la Reina, Spain during the very early colonial period. Later a notable potter by the name of Diego Gaytán, who was a native of Talavera, made an impact on pottery after he arrived in Puebla.
    7. 7. That is the beginning of talavera in Mexico and then was change it and improve it by adding new vivid colors and some new designs to these new high quality pottery.
    8. 8. This beautiful Talavera sinks and tiles are majestically done and painted by hand. They can transform a home into a very Mexican style.
