2 Ceramic Figures "Cat Mother with Kids" in a Set

The elaboration invested in the creation of these colorful ceramics is enormous. The basic form was decorated with the fine details and hardened in the first branding. Then the product was painted by hand and covered with decorative glazing. During the next branding cycles, they are covered with gold and platinum elements, so that there appear individual signs of the tight connection with the traditional native arts of the Latin America.

The figures "Cat mother with a boy": "Oh how golden," this cat mother lovingly watches her offspring. Multi-fired, richly colored with gold and platinum in elaborate handwork. Enamel glaze. Format cat nut 13.8 x 7 x 9.5 cm (H/W/D). Format cat child 8 x 6 x 7 cm (H/W/D). Both cats are available only in a set.

Ceramic product made from kaolin, quartz and feldspar.

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.

A plastic work of sculptural art made of wood, stone, ivory, bronze or other metals.

While sculptures from wood, ivory or stone are made directly from the block of material, for bronze casting a working model is prepared at first. Usually it is made of clay or other easily shaped materials.

The prime time of sculpture after the Roman antiquity was the Renaissance. Impressionism gave a new impulse to the sculptural arts. Also the contemporary artists, such as Jorg Immendorf, Andora, and Markus Lupertz enriched the sculpture with outstanding works.
