Talavera tiles are NOT frost resistant, they should not be used on outdoor installations with potential freezing temperatures.
Mexico is world reknown for its skillful artisans in a wide variety of fields. Mexican writer Alberto Ruy Sanchez Lacy called Mexican tile a "chosen skin". Tiles have embellished numerous public and private spaces thoughout Mexico. A glimpse anywhere in Mexico, particularly in the central states, shows the widespread use of talavera tiles decorating a broad range of spaces from kitchens, fountains, facades, interiors of luxurious hacienda homes to churches. It is through traditional artifacts, such as handcrafted tiles, that one can perceive an artisan’s sensibility, and creativity. Handcrafted ceramic tile is a rooted cultural heritage in Mexico, since its practice of making it began in the late sixteen century, around 1570 and 1573. Mexican ceramic tiles have actively played a distinguished role as an important utilitarian and decorative element in Mexican architecture.
Mexican tile is functional, beautiful, and practical, it provides a long lasting wall or surface that is easy to care and maintain. You can install Mexican tiles in virtually any area you want to enjoy their warm and beauty.
The tiles are made from clay dug out of the ground and fired to a temperature at which the clay undergoes chemical changes and becomes permanently hard. Then the tile is glazed and decorated by hand, and fired once again to give it its final and lively finish. Its physical characteristics make Mexican tiles particularly attractive and distinctive. Mexican tiles are concave (not perfectly flat). They are characterized as unique, irregular, functional, and expressive.

Love these tiles
I ordered several of the Dia de los Muertos tiles for my kitchen remodel. The tiles look even nicer "in the flesh", and I can hardly wait to install them. Tierra y Fuego's service was first rate: prompt shipping, and the order was very well packed-- these people are packing pros!-- and everything arrived intact.
I loved tha compadres tiles they are unique and beautiful I recommend buying from Tierra y fuego, they are prompt and the tiles got delivered right away Besides them being a work of art they come very well packed I am very satisfied with my online purchase.
I would be happy to recommend Tierra y Fuego. The tile is exactly as advertised. The order accuracy was perfect. They must have picked and shipped it the same day I ordered because it arrived exactly 7 days after I ordered. The packing was exceptional, not a single cracked or broken tile.
We are thrilled with the tiles and canít wait to see them installed in our kitchen. They are even more beautiful than what appears on the computer screen. We ordered about 100 4 X 4 tiles, and they were so expertly packed that not a single one arrived broken. I ordered the tiles on a Wednesday, requesting UPS Ground delivery, and they arrived at our home in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania the following Wednesday. No one could have a problem with such prompt service. Thank you!
I was extremely pleased with my tiles and the shipping process Ė thank you! I will order again soon!!
