Powell Craft Porcelain – Blue Rose, Red Rose Or Dingley Dell Collection

 Powell Craft Porcelain – Blue Rose, Red Rose Or Dingley Dell Collection

All porcelain, including Powell Craft porcelain, is made by heating raw materials such as clay in a kiln at high temperatures – between 1200 and 1400 degrees Celsiu japanese ceramics . When mixed with water these raw materials from a plastic body that can be moulded to the required shape before firing in a kiln.

Porcelain is known for its strength and translucence, which comes from the formation of glass and a mineral called mullite that both form when the porcelain is fired at such high temperatures.

The name porcelain comes from an Italian word ‘porcellana’ meaning cowrie shell. It acquired this name because of its resemblance to the translucent surface of the shell. In some English-speaking countries porcelain is often referred to as ‘china’ because China was actually the original birthplace of porcelain making.

Porcelain is now made all over the world, by many different manufacturers, each with their own distinctive style, but it is generally synonymous with England. While porcelain is known generally for being hard, strong and white it can be glazed and artificially coloured to make different designs and styles.

Powell Craft makes three different porcelain collections, each in a different style and colour – the Blue Rose collection, the Red Rose collection and the Dingley Dell collection.

Powell Craft Blue Rose porcelain is a collection of white porcelain with a blue rose motif decorating each item. Items in the collection include plates, bowls, jugs, teapots, trays, fruit bowls, candle holders, egg cups, coffee pots, cups and saucers, mugs, tureens and cake stands.

The Powell Craft Red Rose collection is similar to the Blue Rose but of course has a red rose motif for decoration on the white glazed porcelain.
