Peter StrangGerman sculptor, born in 1936 in Dresden

Peter Strang has the traditional Meissen porcelain shaped like Peter strand: born in 1936 in Dresden, the artist is famous today for his wall sculptures, portraits and sculptures made of fine porcelain.

After completing his education at the State Porcelain Factory studied at the Dresden Academy of Arts and returned in 1959 as sculptor at the Meissen manufactory.

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.
