The History of La Lotería.
Spanish for “the lottery”, Lotería is a card game that originated in Italy during the 15th century and was later brought to Mexico in the 1700’s. Lotería began in the old country as a hobby for the richer or upper classes of Spanish society, but eventually the card games popularity thrived in Mexico to become a big tradition for all classes of Mexican society. Sometimes referred to as the “Mexican game of chance” Loteria is similar to bingo. Using images on a deck of cards instead of plain numbers on ping pong balls. Every image has a name and an assigned number, but the number is usually ignored. Each player has at least one tabla, a board with a randomly created 4 x 4 grid of pictures with their corresponding name and number. Players choose what tabla they want to play with, from a variety of previously created tablas. Each one presents a different selection of cultural images.

Our devotion is designing and creating these unique creations, several of which are fused with metal wires allowing the ceramic accents (wings, thorns, crosses) to be manipulated. Every sculpture is hand painted and embellished with bright silver and gold metallic paints. This collection is a true combination of old world craftsmanship & whimsical artistry. Enjoy!
