Note from Sarah : I have always thought the Talavera Pottery is so gorgeous and unique so I thought it would be so cool to pour candles in the small pots! Talavera Pottery is imported from Mexico and can be found in a few places in the US but do have to be searched for. One of my suppliers told me that the pottery is delivered from Mexico once a month but sometimes only twice a year. The pottery is handmade and handpainted making each piece unique and different. I hope you enjoy the beautiful talavera pot you get and remember to reuse them after the candle burns down (like succulents). -Sarah Talavera pottery is a Mexican and Spanish pottery tradition named after the Spanish Talavera de la Reina pottery, from Talavera de la Reina, in Spain. The Mexican pottery is a type of majolica (faience) or tin-glazed earthenware, with a white base glaze typical of the type. It comes from the town of San Pablo del Monte (in Tlaxcala) and the cities of Puebla, Atlixco, Cholula, and Tecali (all these four latter in the state of Puebla), because of the quality of the natural clay found there and the tradition of production which goes back to the 16th century. Much of this pottery was decorated only in blue, but colors such as yellow, black, green, orange and mauvehave also been used.
