Material: Mont Blanc porcelain.
Technique: Handmade by slip casting. The relief is obtained by using the shellac technique; putting a shellac design by hand on the raw porcelain and taking of a layer of porcelain with a wet sponge. This process is repeated for four times for the SATURN collection. That is why each cup has a different design. The cup is glazed on the inside and unglazed on the outside. Fired in a electric kiln for the first time up to 950 degrees Celcius (bisquit) and for the second time un to 1260 degrees Celcius (glazing). High firing makes the porcelain strong and robust.
Specifications: this product is dishwasher/microwave/oven safe. Prevent thermal shock, like from the fridge in to the oven.
