This large early 20th century barrel shaped talavera Poblana blue on white jar is glazed all over in mineral pigmented cobalt over a milky white slip. The design is a classic one, drawn from Chinese blue on white pottery, for which Mexico had an insatiable appetite. Jars, basins, platters, bowls and many other wares made their way to Mexico via Acapulco's China trade ports, and in order to satisfy the growing demand, the spirited indigenous and itinerant artisans of Puebla drew upon Oriental designs to form their own unique creations. This unique art form came to be known after its city namesake, 'Talavera Poblana'.
The underside of this jar bears the signature of one of Puebla's most esteemed 20th century potters, Isuaro Uriarte, proprietor of the 'Fabrica de la Loza de Talavera.. While many of Puebla's legendary potting techniques were lost with the passing of each generation, Isuaro Uriarte's 'Fabrica de la Loza' is still in production today and they continue to enhance and perfect the art of modeling, firing and glazing talavera pottery.
