details

Björn Wiinblad decided to

transfer his favourite opera Zauberflöte by Mozart into porcelain, not only as decoration but as a relief in porcelain. This translation surely presented one of the most demanding challenges to the modellers and technicians in the history of this material. Zauberflöte is a masterpiece in porcelain craftsmanship. Every piece of the service depicts a different scene from the Mozart opera. It was necessary to create space through extremely wide plate rims for these scenes. On this stage of porcelain Wiinblad tells the story of the opera in a relief with detailed figures and ornamentation. Time and again one finds something new in these scenes. The rims had to be as wide as never before on plates. In order to prevent them flopping down during firing, a special firing technique had to be developed.

The service Zauberflöte possesses

something so special that it is not apparent at first glance: a decoration on the underside of the porcelain! Even in the white range, all pieces carry on the underside the text of the opera libretto of the scene depicted in the relevant porcelain relief. Written in Björn Wiinblad´s ornamental handwriting and decorated with gold. A further feature of this service: the relief surfaces are not glazed but smoothed and polished after the second firing in a highly elaborate procedure. This produces the delicate, matt effect of the relief forming a most attractive contrast to the glazed surfaces.

Zauberflöte by Björn Wiinblad

is an opera dream in porcelain, an imaginative and unique synthesis of music and table culture. Zauberflöte is available in white and also in precious gold named "Sarastro".
