More information

The economic value of crockery is literally translated into the time that the craftsmen in the factory devote to colouring the decorations by hand. After the first firing an impression of the decoration in grey chalk is put on to the porcelain. It is then coloured by hand and finished off in the kiln. The length of time it takes determines the price. The minutes crockery focuses attention on the value of the craft., In 2003 Royal Tichelaar in Makkum asked Jurgen Bey to explore the traditional technique of tin-glazed earthenware (faience). He noticed that painting the pieces took the most time. Bey set a time limit for Tichelaar’s painters that was too short for them to paint the entire piece. The unfinished pieces are fired and the price is determined by the time spent on them.
