1907-2001

Timeless, fuss-free, unparalleled - the ceramic works of Hedwig Bollhagen outlive all trends and can be found in museums, galleries and domestic glass showcases.

The artist from Hannover, born in 1907, was fascinated by the artfully painted stoneware since her childhood and attended the Ceramic Art School in Hoehr-Grenzhausen from 1925. That was a time when the Bollhagen's sense of decor and form shape.

The ceramic icon combines the aesthetics of the Bauhaus with traditional influences while remaining true to its own formal language. Geometric patterns in alternation with delicate pastel shades define the decors, which became design objects starting from 1934 when the factory in Marwitz was opened. Until the late years, she worked in the same color checkered smock in the workshops and immortalized herself with the quote "These are just pots" with her typical blue and white classics. In 2001 the artist died.

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.
