Mexican Talavera tile is mostly hand-made, even though a screen is used to paint the design, most of the process is done by hand.
The square clay piece is first made and fired (this is later called a "cookie"). One surface is painted in white and fired again, the final
step in the process is to screen the design on top of the white surface and fire it for the third time.
The pictures shown are a samples of how varied and rich the color combination can be.
We can also make a custom design. We have prepared a complete guide about Mexican Talavera tile in this document:

and Installation Considerations. If you are planning a tile project, then it is highly recommended that you read this guide.
