About Santa Rosa Mayolica
Spanning several generations and 45 years, Santa Rosa is the distinctive creator of a one-of-a-kind approach to the Mayolica pottery tradition. The family behind Santa Maria Mayolica proudly offers hand-produced, one-of-a-kind pieces; each an original, each made exclusively in the Santa Rosa artisan tradition.
The pieces you see are created from indigenous clay pulled from the local land, and painstakingly formed and fired by artisans; many of who are also following generations of family tradition as artisans. The hand-painted detail are classic studio designs, and all created to share the beauty of Mexican hospitality, traditions and culture.
The fired pieces are then sketched and painted completely by hand, using the finest quality pigments hand-created and using local minerals. Finally, the pieces are fired and glazed again with a special technique which ensures luster, durability and fine craftsmanship. Each piece is signed by the studio, your guarantee of an original piece of Santa Rosa Mayolica fine art pottery.
All pieces are lead-free, diningware is dishwasher safe; we recommend hand-washing for the larger or more intricate collection items.
