The decoration on the Blueware collection is applied by using a transfer technique that was developed in England in the 18th century. In those days an engraved copper sheet with wet ink was pressed on tissue paper and afterwards the tissue paper was pressed on a ceramic surface. Finally, the ceramics were fired at a low temperature and the decoration appeared on the product. Nowadays the transfer is made with a screen print. The use of a screen print enables more colours to be used and therefore the result to be amazingly close to the original hand painted earthenware.
