The Workmanship of Mexican Talavera Toilets

It's toilet art!

A talavera toilet is hand-painted by an artist who patiently works for many hours on each piece. The detail in this work is obvious and it makes for a beautiful product.

Matching sinks, toilet seats, and accessories are also available, so you can have a bathroom that completely matches.

Many different designs are available, plus, because these are hand-made, if there is something special that you would like, it is possible to have a design made custom at no additional cost. Imagine having your child's artwork painted on a toilet, or your favorite flower, or your business logo!

Decorating With a Talavera Toilet

Because the design options are limitless when selecting a talavera toilet, the overall bathroom d├ęcor options are limitless as well.

You could choose to do your whole bathroom in talavera tiles with a talavera toilet. This makes a gorgeously elaborate Mexican room.

Another option would be to go for a modern and sleek design like this one, and let the talavera fixtures be the focus.

This is a lovely example of how a talavera toilet can be used to make a bold statement in a room without looking over the top.

Mexican Calacas Toilet

Skeleton Toilet

I LOVE this toilet! I love this toilet like I've never loved a toilet before. I love this toilet in a way I never thought a person could love a toilet.

The calaca is important to Mexican culture. Calacas, meaning skeletons, are used as decoration during the Day of the Dead.

If you have a toilet like this one in your home bathroom or even your business restroom, it will become a destination. Everyone will have to stop by to check it out.

If you have a teenage son, he wants this in his bathroom. This is a rock-star toilet!

And remember, this is not just a novelty, this toilet is a piece of art, being hand-painted by talented artists.

      Woweeee! I had no idea a toilet could look this colorful. I am not sure that I would want one in MY bathroom, but I do appreciate the work that has gone into the decoration of these mexican talavera toilets. Now, on plates, or bowls, this would be fantastic. Love the use of bright colors. You know, when you think about it, the standard, unadorned toilet really IS pretty

      We recently replaced our 1926 charmer with a government-approved low-flush boring white eyesore. I'd kill for a Talavera toilet! A local garden shop we love carries these as well as the sinks.

      Fantastic lens! I thought the talavera toilet was a bit much at first, but after looking at all those featured here they are definitely growing on me.

      Maybe I'll start with just a colorful soap dish, then work up to having a colorful toilet. These are stunning and I love Mexican tilework. We are so used to our plain old toilets that it will take some mental adjustment to switch to one of these.
