Ceramics from yesteryear
The Virgen de Guadalupe, milagros, sacred hearts and images are all artistic motifs used in Mexican folk art in every state in Mexico.
The Christmas decorations of Mexico vary by region but are always colorful and festive whether made of tin, paper, wood, textiles or clay.
"Milagro"means "miracle" in Spanish. Milagros are religious charms that are prevalent throughout Mexico and are used to request or thank God for a miracle.
Consider giving a gift of high quality, Mexican handmade goods! Every piece is authentic and personally selected on our buying trips to Mexico.
Lots of unique, colorful paper products and decorations are made by Mexican artisans with skill and creativity.

These handmade Talavera cazuelas (handled bowls) from Dolores Hidalgo, Mexico, are one of our most popular items. We offer these beautifully painted and shaped cazuelas in a large size. A cazuela is commonly used in Mexico, in every state, to cook sauces and moles, often over an open flame. This one is not for that, but it is food safe and could be used in the oven or microwave. However, I prefer to think of it as a lovely bowl for salads and side dishes. Or, of course, as a decorative item in your home. The patterns are varied but most have a mixture of cobalt blue, orange, yellow and red, so the patterns mix and match with other Talavera pieces extremely well. All of our ceramics are food safe, lead free and can go in the dishwasher, oven or microwave, if appropriate. We recommend hand washing.
