Calaveras is a patchwork with the Calavera Catrina motif, which has a special place in native Mexican culture. It is important to know that for a Mexican, death is not the end, but a continuation of life, which here on earth is only a flash, something impermanent. Hence, the representations of death are not terrible and do not cause fear.
Just like in our special patchwork, where the skull appears on multi-colored backgrounds and her eyes resemble flowers. It cannot be ignored that the whole thing refers to the pop-art works of Andy Warhol, e.g. the one from Marylin Monroe.
Talavera Calaveras tiles are hand made by artisans in Mexico, they are not perfectly identical and that is their charm. The enamel may have signs of small cracks formed during firing, and the patterns may vary slightly.
The tiles are resistant to abrasion and even with deeper scratches the pattern is still visible, as the individual colors are contained in the glazing. Each tile is first covered with a primer - the base color, and then each pattern color is applied separately. After firing, the tiles get their final colors as well as extraordinary resistance.
