From the French ‘cuir’ meaning ‘leather.’
A new, challenging technique that we have developed in terms of expression in the porcelain medium. This is a white porcelain whose pale colour possesses a leather-like texture and lustre, the quality of which you can keenly feel when touched by hand. The development process lasted a full 5 years. At least 5 or 6 kiln firings are necessary and the correct application of compound ratios of paint and glaze, along with the most suitable firing procedure were only perfected after countless trials.
