Students will embellish plain terracotta pots with intricate painted talavera designs. A combination of floral patterns and geometric details will bring the surfaces to life in the traditional talavera color palette of blue, yellow. Black, green, orange, and red.
This project explores geometric designs and painting on a 3 dimensional object. The historical and cultural significance of this style of pottery will be discussed.
Studio potters create functional and decorative pottery pieces to sell. Some potters create their own unique designs using their own style while others work with a group of artisans to craft traditional creations.
