The artistic work of Stefan Szczesny, born in 1951 in Munich, characterises contemporary art. A scholarship in Paris and stays in New York, the Massimo Villa in Rome, France and the Caribbean lastingly influenced his work.

Guided by artists such as Matisse and Picasso are Szczesny let him focuses in his paintings on classical themes like Nude and Still Life. The artist thereby reflects on a sensuous, colourful objectivity. In his paintings, nature and culture merge in their most extreme form.

Porcelain is formed by turning or pressing. Figural representations are cast. Complex molds have to be cast in sections and then "applied". After molding, the pieces are dried and "burnt" at about 900 °C. After that, the glaze is applied and fired at temperatures between 1,240 °C and 1,445 °C. In major manufactures, the porcelain is painted by hand with each color separately and has to be burned in compliance with narrow temperature tolerances.

The porcelain was invented in China and became widespread in Europe in the 16th century. The first European porcelain factory was founded in Meissen in 1710.

Other famous European porcelain factories are Fürstenberg, Höchst, Schwarzburger Werkstätten, Lladró, Nymphenburg, KPM, Augarten, Sèvres, Limoges, Royal Copenhagen, Worcester. Individual factories label their products with the porcelain brands that serve to identify their origin.
