LAURE SELIGNAC : ARTISAN OF GILDED PORCELAIN
The Porcelain House SELIGNAC is specializing in embossed gold on porcelain since 1919.
The gold-Embossed technique is discovered in 1919 by Jean Larat. He develops a process that allows him to deposit gold in thickness on porcelain. Over the years the technique is refined and the craftsmanship evolves to adapt to the modernity of our creations but it is still on the same bases today that our craftsmen work this rare technique. Recently, a new process combines gold leaf for even more innovative materials on porcelains!
The birth of an art piece at Laure SELIGNAC
At first, our painters decorate white porcelains with their brushes, feathers, animals, plants, ribbons, and then they put the porcelains in the oven... The colors became brighter after the first firing! Then, they carefully put either nets of gold, gold drops or leaves of gold on the porcelain before the second cooking. Before the last cooking, we sometimes add customization by hand according to the request of our customers. Each cooking is different depending on the color and the material and each piece requires more or less creative time depending on the pattern. Before leaving for its final destination, the piece is carefully checked and verified to provide a quality of excellence to our customers around the world.
