Endlessly Artistic, Original You

Oh you...original, artistic, broke-the-mold-when-they-made-you person.

Trend-setter?  Well...not on purpose.You are simply endlessly curious, ready to be delighted, and in a world of mass-produced efficiency, appreciative of the handcraft of the patiently-talented and artistically-gifted. 

You don't look to entertain lavishly, you just entertain well.  With heart, and originality, and a caring hospitality that makes your guests purr with contented delight.

Not frivolous or frugal, you long ago found yourself bored with the cookie-cutter chic of chain store emporiums; yet not ready to sacrifice the college fund or your dream vacation for pricey tableware and home decor.

Oh you...will love the beauty, handcraft, originality and quality of the Rustica Gift & Pottery collection of artisan-created Talavera & Mayolica pottery, plates and dinnerware. 

Original art pieces at reachable prices.

With a pedigree that spans centuries and continents, colonial Mexico's pottery masters will surprise, delight and charm with their creations.  Each and every piece is hand made, signed by the studio, and yet, imminently practical:  lead-free, dishwasher safe and heat-resistant.  Usable quality to pass from generation to generation.

To hang on the wall or use on the table?  That is the dilemma, and the delight, of authentic Talavera & Mayolica pottery from Mexico.  We hope you find yourself as in love with this beautiful pottery as we are.
