When Spaniards arrived in the 1600s they introduced some new techniques and new styles in pottery production. The combination of these new techniques and the techniques of the Mexican people produced a new form of pottery called Talavera.

Talavera pottery draws its name from the city Talavera de la Reina, Spain. But in Mexican pottery history you can feel the influence of other nations not only the Spaniards. The Moors, Chinese, Egyptians gave their contribution to the lovely pieces of Mexican pottery.
