The central theme of interior designed by architects Boris Klimek and Lenka Damová is the film Porceain Girls (Holky z porcelánu) filmed in Klášterec porcelain factory in 1974. The space is divided into couple of distinctive zones reminiscent of the film with light exaggeration and melancholy. The project could have arisen also thanks to financial subsidy of Ústí nad Labem region and town Klášterec. Exhibition should be opened for public in the second half of November 2018.   more > Decorations Decorations   Decoration of porcelain products is the penultimate phase of finishing it. Then follows the last firing in the decoration kiln and porcelain product can be dispatched to the customer. There are 4 basic decoration techniques:   Decoration with printsPrints can be monochromatic or multicoloured. They are delivered from the plant “Screen printing” in sheets covered with the layer of removable varnish which ensures easy application of prints on porcelain product. Prints can exist in various forms – multicoloured, black and white, pictures, photos, with precious metals, cobalt, etc. This decoration technique is the most used and spread nowadays.   Curiosity: In 2015 the plant “Screen printing” produced 24,797,405 pieces of prints.       Decoration with sprayingColours are applied by spraying pistol over special pattern or all over the surface.       Kinds of decoration:Full fund – fund covering all surfaces of products   Fading fund – the contours are not exactly given, they are fading   Hidden fund – some places are covered with the varnish or other materials which are removed after spraying and some places under them stay white.       Hand brush decorationThis kind of decoration is mainly used for rich decoration; porcelain is decorated by painters on rotating ring. It is handmade painting of marginal lines by flat brush, especially plates or bowls. Facade (pulling out the relief or highlighting handles) is decorated by special thin brush.       Curiosity:The brushes are made from squirrel hair.       Decoration with stampsThis kind of decoration is mainly used for decorating with precious metals (gold, platinum), nowadays less used.       more > Gastronomy Gastronomy Good shape – foundation for porcelain success. In the beginning of porcelain product manufacturing is a good idea of capable sculptor or designer who creates and draws an interesting shape which is later put into production. In cooperation with other artists or salesmen they gradually decorate the shape with various decors mostly according to fashion trends.   Former artsy porcelain shapes are gradually substituted with modern utility shapes returning to functionalism style. Porcelain is mainly used for serving meals. Gastronomy is becoming more and more important part of our lives. Good meal makes good connections. If it is served on extraordinary porcelain shape, it tastes much better. Enjoy the porcelain miracle of shapes EYE, LOOS or TOM.
