Ceramica y Cultura: The Story of Spanish and Mexican Mayólicaby Robin Farwell Gavin
This substantial volume, which contains 14 essays on Spanish and Mexican painted ceramics (it is not an exhibition catalogue), was published to accompany an exhibition held at the Museum of International Folk Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico in 2003. The essays consider ceramics from the Middle Ages in Spain through present day production in Mexico, including production centers in Puebla, Guanajuato, and Aguascalientes. Other topics include ceramics in daily life, Mexican ceramics in Spain, Mexican tile, ceramics in contemporary Seville, and the use of Spanish ceramics in architecture.
