Circle Moon Talavera Mexican Tile > 211315-69
Weight: 0.35 pounds
Our price: $1.30
This Talavera ceramic tile is hand-painted in a mostly dark blue background and the Moon is painted in white, actually the whole tile is painted in white as a first step and then in a second step, the rest of the tile is painted. When you put more than one tile by the other, it does not make any special patterns, which indicates this tile is mostly designed to be alone (used as a accent in a wall/counter where another tile is dominant).
Mexican Talavera ceramic is the result of a mixture of cultures over the time. The Spaniards were influenced by Arabic pottery, they brought it to Mexico and the mixture of cultures gave as result these beautiful art in ceramic. This ceramic tile is just an example of the exquisite beauty the Mexican craftsmen put on each item they create. It is hand-painted, this means that no two tiles are exactly alike! There might be small differences in size, weight and even the paintings.
The last two pictures show some patterns you can make using more than one tile, first is a combination with the Sun Talavera Ceramic Tile and the last one shows the Cicle Moon Talavera Ceramic Tile with the same Sun Talavera Ceramic Tile in a reversed order. If you want to delight somebody special with a unique handcrafted gift, this is what you are looking for! This tile is special for small patches or entire wall decoration, as you can see from the patterns found in the last two pictures.
All of our Talavera tiles have a heavily hand-made process involved; as such, imperfections are expected. Color variations are to be expected from batch to batch. What you see on your screen might not be exactly what you will get, this is mostly due to several factors, among others: lighting when the picture was taken, lighting in your own monitor, but mostly changes in the glazes used between batches. All these factors are beyond our control. If in doubt, we recommend you to order a sample before committing to a bigger order.
