Lladró: Porcelain sculpture ‘The Guest’ (Jaime Hayon / Rolito), hand-painted

In 1953 the brothers Juan, José and Vicente Lladró founded near Valencia / Spain, a porcelain factory and initially produced vases and small pots. Three years later they decided to produce figurines. Since 1956 the works of art of the finest porcelain have been impressing the steadily growing number of their fans worldwide. Since 1974 all the figurines made by Lladró are wearing a blue bellflower as the logo._x000D_

The descendants of the three founding Lladró brothers have also devoted themselves to the art of porcelain. The recipe of the specially created porcelain paste, which gives the figurines their unique character, is a well-guarded company secret. The composition of the gloss coating is secret as well. Meanwhile many limited editions have become sought-after collectors' objects._x000D_

Logo of the art porcelain factory LladróThe porcelain factory Lladró was founded by three brothers, Juan, José and Vicente Lladró at the end of the 1950s. Even today it is a family-owned company.

The production facilities that are located in the "Porcelain City" in the town of Tavernes Blanques near Valencia in Spain enjoy a world-wide reputation. On the one hand this is owing to the selection of sculptors and modellers, who impress the expert audience with their artistic originality year after year, on the other hand to exquisite, high-precision implementation of their designs that are second to none. A closely guarded secret of the company is a specially developed porcelain paste, which gives the figures their unique character. The composition of the gloss coat is also secret.

Lladrós sculptures have long been internationally wanted collectibles; the limited, piece by piece numbered copies of each edition can quickly find their way around the world.

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.
