Holy Kitsch! Mexican faience wares display streams of influence on traditional earthenware in Mexico. Western earthenware was already developed prior to Mexico. With the importation of glazed ceramics displaying Moorish/African Chinese Roman and Dutch influences new techniques were absorbed into the ancient arts and crafts movement of Mexico a result being these spectacular tin glazed ceramics.
The artisans in Mexico still sieve mix and knead their own clays and now use non-toxic glazes. This beautiful ware is a fantastic homage to herds that were moved by the indigenous across the vast plains of North Mexico and Southern USA once a part of Mexico. This is an ethical ware.
Bulls and oxen are often depicted by artists as the artist or about the individuals iinternal struggles and their battle to overcome their fears reach their aspirations. Its a dark and beastly presence used as metaphor for all manner of situations you could write a tome.
Each bull's head is a different pattern as the patterns are created freehand by the artists utilising a collage way of seeing creating a design with depth.
