The Artisan Process

This oversized ceramic wall-hanging sculpture is hand sculpted from clay that is then high-fired in a large kiln. The ceramic sculpture goes through 2 baking process. The 1st bake allows the raw clay to dry and harden before it is hand-painted with Lead Free paint. The 2nd bake is done in high-fire kiln with protective glaze finish. The Glossy protective Glaze coat that is baked on in a high-fire kiln where temperatures reach 1200* - 1500*F. This high firing process allows the Cow Skull to be completely safe for outdoor display year-round. Each sculpture is artisan sculpted and completely hand painted, hand-painted Talavera patterns may vary slightly, fair trade artisan crafted.


Artisan Talavera Style

Each “Cuerno” or Longhorn sculpture is individually painted by the top Mexican Talavera artisans of Guanajuato Mexico. We partner with this group of fair-trade artisans, to create several beautiful pieces of folk-art and home decor. Their technique is inspired by the old-world painting style known as Talavera and Majolica their talent in this artistry has been passed down from one generation to the next. 

Talavera style is a popular Mexican style used by crafters from Puebla, Tlaxcala, Atlixco, Cholula, and Tecali. The indicator colors of this Mexican style is usually blue and white, but in recent decades artisans have added yellow, black, green, orange, and mauve to the style color palette. The color palette is made with natural pigments to get the right shades for the pottery.
