These are photos of tiles I bought in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. Tiles adorn nearly every surface: tables, walls, countertops, stairs and especially floors. Their details can be simple or intricate and nearly always symmetric. I think that the designs and decorations they create are beautiful.

These tiles are called 'talavera' tiles. The Tierra y fuego website shows *hundreds* of these tile designs and details how they are made. I'm going try making them myself... if I succeed, I'll post photos here.
