Oh, I hope you guys are into porcelain… This is just a tiny snippet of all the wonderful things I saw at the Porcelain Manufactur of Meißen.
(Believe it or not, I went by myself because no one wanted to go! Strange stuff.)
Admittedly, I was looking forward to all the kitsch, but the outstanding craftsmanship somehow outdid the motifs. On two stories, the Museum exhibits classical porcelain work as well as modern engagement with the material. They also offer a tour through the show workshop, which I highly recommend. All in all, I stayed a good three hours and you bet, I learned a lot about porcelain. The city of Meißen has a beautiful vibe to it and offers many more sights for a nice weekend getaway or a great setting for a fancy wedding.
So, Angel of Joy by Qu Guangci is just a teaser for all the angels, deer and plates to come …
School Holidays are over in Berlin, so seems summer, and it’s about time for this girl to get some work done!
Have a great Hump Day; we’ve got this!

you managed pretty well to catch the kitschiest of all Angels of Joy, not looking very pleased with him/herself! 🙂
Oh Kiki, wait for the stuff to follow!
NOW I’m truly afraid… 🙂
Ah, you know it can get painful around here 🥳
Exactly. Shouldn’t an Angel of Joy be smiling?
AoJ looks heavily constipated! 😉
Ha ha, what might he be feeling joyful about?
I could be completely wrong, but this very unique piece looks like Mao Tse Tung. Can’t wait to see the rest!
There’s never anything wrong with what you see! I doubt it’s a coincidence:)
I thought so too, but then I thought: Naaah, not when it’s Meissen!
He he, for your sake, it will not involve gnomes! They don’t seem to do them in porcelain. (I should look into that)
I think you should! I mean, what’s a piece of porcelain if it doesn’t include a gnome or three?! 😉
Funny, I thought so too, but then I thought: Naaaah, can’t be, or it wouldn’t reside in Meissen!
Good work on porcelain! 🌹👌And Nicely expressed 🤗
Well thank you and wait for all the porcelain to come ,🥳
