About this item: Alonso Luis uses the same legendary techniques that make Talavera ceramics unique to craft this exquisite set of cups and saucers.

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.
