Porcelain painting "The Temptation":

Not the biblical snake, but a devil figure ranges Eve the apple from the tree of knowledge - and makes blatant advances. Strand turns it into a clash of brilliant white and the deepest black, and with a deeper meaning: On the cheek of "blushing" beauty already seen a first black spot.

Burned with a gold figures made of hard porcelain image at 1.300 degrees. Manufactured at Schwarzburger Werkstatten porcelain art. Limited Edition 198 copies, in demanding solid wood framing. Size 25.9 x 30.4 cm. Ars Mundi exclusive Edition.

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.
