It originates from Baghdad in the 9th century. The Arabs, with the desire to imitate the Chinese ceramics that came to that area, discovered this ingenious technique. It was transported to Spain during the invasion of the Moors and later established roots in Mexico with the Spanish conquest in the 16th century.
The galery was born in 1990 with the objective of rescuing one of the most important artisan processes in Mexico and taking it without separating from the tradition that dates back to the 16th century, to its contemporaneity. The Talavera de la Reyna Gallery was officially inaugurated in 2010. It is the headquarters of the "Alarca Collection" considered the most important in Latin America in this technique, where more than 70 artists from different disciplines have participated.
Alarca Collection ... the result of the interventions of various authors, the meticulous work of artisans and the passion of Angelica Moreno.
