By its method of elaboration which has not changed since the fourteenth century Unesco decided that the manufacture of ceramics in the Talavera style of the states of Mexico such as Puebla and Tlaxcala be declader Cultural Heritage
The method of elaborating said ceramic takes place in Puebla and Tlaxcala, which is known as Talavera, has been declared as Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO, this new recognition was extended to the Spanish towns of Talavera de la Reina and Puente del Arzobispo.
The order was made from from Bogota, Colombia, where the 14th Intergovernmental Committee for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of UNESCO assessed that the manufacturing, decoration and glazing procedures of the type of ceramics are still handcrafted and the process remains identical since the 16th century.
Unesco recognized those who work on ceramics in the Talavera style and said of them that they are “masters in pottery and ceramics and whom have acquired their skills over time and have passed them on orally to the younger generations, either in their workshops or within their families”.
Knowledge such as the preparation of clay, modelling with a lathe or a cast, ornamentation of the piece, preparation of pigments and enamel as well as firing of the kiln are passed down through these generations intact.
Likewise, Unesco recognized that each talavera workshop has its own identity, since each one has specific details of the models, ornamentations, colours and enamels of the pieces.
