The timeless and innovated design of TOM, which rightfully relates to the best-selling shapes on the Czech market, enables its use for every day with innovated assortments. The transformation took place especially in flat products, ie in all plates and oval bowls. The complete TOM file is known at more > Shape LEA Shape LEA We included new porcelain set Lea into our production portfolio. The set was designed by an artist from Karlovy Vary Lenka Sárová - Malíská. Shapes are simple without any unnecessary decorations, they come out from pure lines. Lea is unusual for relief with concentric circles and the handle on the top of pot and sugar bowl. This detail gives it its originality, the shape is fully functional and ergonomic for man´s hand as well. The number of the name Lea is nine. Number nine is predestined for success, but they have to decide and use their inner sources. We believe that inner sources of porcelain Lea are obvious - elegance fully exploiting advantages of noble material, nonchalance, grace and moment of surprise.   We wish Lea great success! more > Official statement Thun 1794 a.s. Official statement Thun 1794 a.s. We would like to inform you about the current situation in Thun 1794 a.s. to prevent the spread of unverified messages. Production in all 3 plants (Nová Role, Klášterec, Lesov) runs without restrictions. Absence of employees in the workplace is only for reasons of the Czech Republic or the normal absence. The order coverage of the company is for April / May incl. large orders for an Italian customer (on which work is temporarily suspended - only in decorations). The company is negotiating a bridging loan due to deferred exports (Spain, Germany, Italy and now also Russia). The results of negotiations with commercial banks and state banks (EGAP and Czech Export Bank) will be known in the first days of the following week. It all depends on establishing emergency measures to provide support to large export companies. Further information will be provided in the middle of next week.

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 > Implementation of survey work Implementation of survey work 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.
