"The kaolin that was extracted from the Meissen quarry was – and still is – of the best possible quality, which made Meissen porcelain the finest in Europe. The traditional recipe for porcelain is still a secret, and likewise the colours that are used for the paint, which are known to no more than a handful of people working at the factory."

Elke Dannenberg is a porcelain decorator at the renowned Meissen factory. She began her training at 16, before being chosen to learn directly from renowned decorator Professor Heinz Werner. Twenty-five years on, she reproduces and reinterprets his designs, using tools and techniques that date back more than three centuries.
