Talavera Planters & Garden Art

I’m guessing some people reading this article are going to ask the question, “What on Earth is a Talavera Planter?”. For those of you asking that question, here’s a basic explanation.

In this sense art can always be connected back to the artist behind it. If we consider this view point then we can see expressions of art wherever we look. Graffiti, crafts, music, photography, drama/dance, cinematography, digital expressions and more traditionally paintings. From the things people cook, what they wear, the designs of their homes, the things they collect to what they write can all be classed as a form of artistic expression. To be clear though, I do think there has to be some intent there so in order for what someone cooks to be classed as art they have to have put some thought into it!!! It is then not merely the act of doing something that creates art but the thoughts and processes leading up to it. Read more
