Talavera-style pottery is most commonly associated with Mexico, and for good reason. Collins has a unique spin on Talavera, hand-crafting maiolica poblana pottery in a manner that both honors tradition and uses innovative elements to propel the artform forward. Born and raised in Mexico’s inland, southern municipality of Puebla, Collins lectures frequently about the history and tradition of Talavera and Maiolica ceramics, styles first introduced to Mexico in the 1500s. Along with the organization Arte Ventosa, Collins seeks to educate people about the fascinating tradition of these centuries-old functional art pieces.
