Little Idiots 2

$32.00

There is hardly anything I throw away; sometimes while walking or doing something I start to combine different pieces that I’ve found. This creature that I called “bubarak” was “born” so spontaneously from a broken glass and something else. It waves merrily with its hand. Then a mold is made of it and it can be distributed in small quantities. Baked in a ceramic furnace at 900 C it is then hand-colored by me.

The product weighs 200 gr. and has the following dimensions: 11x10x10 cm/ 4,3 x 3,9 x 3,9 in

Product Description

Porcelain is a type of ceramic, but is much harder than it. It is produced from kaolin (white clay), quartz (silica) and feldspar. Non-porous and impervious to liquids and gas porcelain has a specific light radiance and when tapped gives a characteristic high and clear sound.
The production of porcelain began in China in the VII-the century.

Porcelain is one of the most important Chinese inventions that changed the lifestyle of people and that has been held in deep secrecy for centuries under the threat of death sentence. Following Marco Polo ‘s journey to China in Europe for the first time appeared some very beautiful pottery ware from unknown material that quickly became very valuable to the aristocracy . Alchemist Johann Boettger at one of his many attempts accidentally produced some material that turned out to be the first European porcelain. In the following year (1710) in Meissen opened the first European porcelain factory.

Today we distinguish three main types of porcelain: hard, soft and bone china.

My art pieces are made of porcelain mass.
They are either glazed or matt depending on whether additional glazing has been applied.
