I love everything weird and colorful in this world and I try to live a life that will make the world a little better once I'm gone.
Amazing Handpainted Mexican Toilets in Stunning Vibrant Colors
Alas, I have finally found the solution to the epidemic of boring white toilets that plagues so many bathrooms!
Mexico has long been known for it's gorgeous tiles. Going one step further will bring you to these beautiful colorful talavera toilets.
Each talavera toilet is handpainted by a Mexican artisan, who spends hours creating the captivating unique toilet just for you.
Just image starting each morning by spending a few minutes with a piece of art like this!
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 décor 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.
Calacas Talavera Toilet
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.

I never thought I would enjoy a lens about toilets so much.
hlkljgk from Western Mass on March 22, 2012:
great idea for a unique lens. beautiful art.
anonymous on March 22, 2012:
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 boring..lol

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.
dahlia369 on March 22, 2012:
I've never seen anything like it before. Nice lens!! :)
Tagsforkids on March 22, 2012:
Wow, these will definitely brighten things up a bit in the bathroom! It would be a real eye opener first thing in the morning! :-)

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.
Virginia Allain from Central Florida on March 22, 2012:
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.
Tonie Cook from USA on March 22, 2012:
As one who appreciates functional art, this definitely belongs in the place where sh*t happens! Excellent!
Margaret Schaut from Detroit on March 22, 2012:
These are just great!
Winter52 LM on March 22, 2012:

JoshK47 on March 20, 2012:
Whoa - absolutely crazy! Love these!
iWriteaLot on March 20, 2012:
These are beautiful! I love that skeleton toilet, too. Wouldn't that be cool in a Goth bathroom? Great idea for a lens.

Not sure if I would actually want one but they sure are colorful.
