earthenware

Earthenware is glazed or unglazed nonvitreous pottery which has normally been fired below 1200°C. Porcelain, bone china and stoneware, all fired at high enough temperatures to vitrify, are the main other important types of pottery.

Earthenware comprises "all primitive pottery whatever the color, all terra-cottas, most building bricks, nearly all European pottery up to the seventeenth century, most of the wares of Egypt, Persia and the near East; Greek, Roman and Mediterranean, and some of the Chinese; and the fine earthenware which forms the greater part of our tableware today." 
Earthenware, when fired, is opaque and non-vitreous, soft and capable of being scratched with a knife.

Hella Jongerius emphasises the transition between transparent and white by having the platter immersed partly in the tin glaze. By doing this, she not only focuses attention on the production process by making it part of the decoration, but reveals the colour of the Friesian clay for the first time in centuries. In addition to the white version, there is also a decorated version in this series, inspired by simple rural motifs and painted outlines inspired by the majolica archives. The result is a series of attractive products with a contemporary allusion to history and special use of traditional skills.

ssj 02 02Soup bowl, handpainted

Soup Set by Hella Jongerius consists of a service comprising a number of soup bowls. For the decoration she found a drawing in the archives depicting an old Dutch sailing ship that she transferred to the service using the silkscreen printing technique. This technique makes it possible to reproduce decoration mechanically and was used when the ceramics factories were industrialised in the nineteenth century. Hella Jongerius designed two versions, one of which exclusively uses transfers and the other which is partly filled in by hand-painters, which clearly illustrates the contrast between the two.

Patchwork plates is the series designed by Marcel Wanders. He found the majolica plates in the traditional collection particularly charming. He selected five different sizes from the archive and designed thirty different decorations that were transferred using a silkscreen printing technique on to the raw glaze to which gold lustre was applied. By leaving a blank space each time, which was filled in later by our painters, he not only illustrated the contrast between the two techniques, but also used the opportunity to demonstrate different aspects of the painter's work. Hence an intriguing twenty-first centry series of plates was created, one that enhances our contemporary collection.

msb 26 0163 minutes cup and saucer

The coffee and tea service by Jurgen Bey consists of new combinations of existing moulds and decorations from the company archives. Bey made a comprehensive analysis of the craft production process and concentrated on the time necessary to produce the different pieces of the service. He provides an insight into this time element by replacing the charcoal powder that is typically used to transfer the decoration onto the service with a grey glaze, which in contrast to the powder is permanent after it has been fired. He allowed the painters several minutes to add the decoration to the different parts, whether or not this was workable. The title not only refers to the duration of the hand-painting process, but also relates to the price of the individual pieces: more time to produce therefore more expensive.
