Capelo Mexican Handmade Ceramics

If you like Mexican ceramics, you may be familiar with the majolica of  “Capelo” from Guanajuato, Mexico. The pieces are made in the traditional way, on a wheel, fired several times at a very high temperature and in Capelo’s case, glazed with the most beautiful, subtle colors. We currently have  a number of Capelo vases in the shop. Here are a few shots…

Red Mexican Ceramics from Guanajuato

Mexican talavera pottery comes from several regions. One of the places I like to go is the State of Guanajuato to look for interesting, less common patterns. I especially like the red in these ceramics–it’s a little more uncommon than the usual blue, terracotta, yellow and white. They make a statement whenever you want to serve something with a little color. And all of these ceramics are food safe.

The top photo is a nicer quality of ceramic than the bottom photo but aren’t they pretty?
