Those who have seen these people at work, seen their seriousness about the matter and the joy in their faces, can understand why such ceramics cannot be compared with mass produced articles.

Individual brush strokes

Precise but nevertheless with artistic flair to the tip of the brush – this is Carla, one of the painters. Many parts require an individual brush strokes in regards to thickness and guidance, that is carefully applied. This art requires a steady hand and much attention to detail.

Forming

It starts with the casting – or pressing – of the ceramic lump into the hand worked form. After gentle “forming”, the raw product moves on to the time intensive “polishing”. This means that the leather hard form is released from its casting seams and the rough and angular surface is smoothed. Careful and deft craftsmanship is necessary for the subsequent glazing and/or the artistic decoration.

HANDS WITH PASSION

Considerable experience is also required when “positioning“ the decorated article in the kiln car. After many hours in the kiln heated to over 1100 degrees and then slowly, slowly cooled, the completed article is ready for quality control. No blemishes and no hidden flaws are missed by the “watching“ trained fingertips and eyes. Any negative impression here results in an uncompromising consignment to the “breakages box”.
