Our collection consists of handmade style falling into a few subcategories. Those are relief tiles,  talavera wall tiles and ceramic floor pavers. The first characterizes with multidimensional patterns achieved by pouring paint over tile the way it is elevated. Quite a unique effect but also pretty expensive to produce. Each tile is painted piece by piece with no possibility of implementing automation with minimum degree the production process. Other collection is rustic talavera. They are made primary in Dolores Hidalgo from three different clay. Two of them are found locally and the third one is brought from state of San Luis Potosi. Once they mixed together and dried on Sun they become red clay with reddish tones. The last group covers handmade floor tiles that are elaborated from similar to the talavera material. Contrary to rustic wall shape that is square and sometimes rectangular, flooring comes octagonal that can be installed with inserts 2x2 or 4x4 inches in size. Those can be fabricated from the same clay often used in colonial architecture.

Handcrafted ceramic can be used in kitchens, bathroom, living rooms, dining rooms, patios and verandas. It creates warm and inviting atmosphere and any machine printed product is no match to artisan art. Some of them like for example high relief ceramics are produced from porcelain. It makes them much stronger allowing  decorating with them floors and stair risers outdoors even in cold climate.
