Capula Ceramic Dinnerware
Our hand painted ceramic dinnerware collection is made in the mountains of Michoacán, México by the Neri family, who for generations have made glazed pottery in the "capulineado" style.
Capulineado pottery involves a pointillist approach to ceramic painting which developed at the time of Spanish contact in Michoacán when monasteries were being built and influenced ceramic production in the region.
The capulín design celebrates the Mexican cherry flower, or capulin, and dates to the mid 1550s. The designs are typically painted in solid colors, predominantly pastels, with small contrasting or white accents to resemble the shape of these ubiquitous spring flowers. Great for special al fresco summer dinner or daily use if you like.
