An earthenware manufacturer from Lothringen going back 250 years produces this coffee bowl. It’s a testimony to their tenacity that they have been able to hold on, with not more than a dozen employees left from 120. The porcelain painters mix the glaze and spray it on the bowls by hand, relying entirely on their sense of proportion. They lay on templates loosely in order to generate a discrete indistinctness in the application of the glaze.
