VIDE POCHE

The cornflower, as simple and simple as it seems, was Queen Luise's favorite flower - she made woven wreaths with her children and her grave was decorated with fresh flowers by Friedrich Wilhelm. Reason enough for the KPM to transfer the flowers with almost transparent brushstrokes onto the iconic Luisen bust after Johann Gottfried Schadow , which immortalizes the “good queen” with a sensitively crafted face.

And because the flower was seen as a sign of change and progress during the Romantic period, the large-format flower with its almost flowing leaves still works today: from classicism to sixites - a style-defining decor for all times.

LOOK BEHIND THE SCENES

POUR AND GARNISH

The individual parts produced by casting are assembled (garnished) with pasty porcelain mass. When garnishing, you have to do it quickly so that the pieces don't dry out. Seams are neatly plastered. Finally, the finished product is processed again with brushes and sponges so that any irregularities disappear.

BLUE DIPPING AND GLAZING

The bust is hand dipped into a tub filled with glaze. The absorption capacity of the blank and the immersion time determine the thickness of the glaze layer and its distribution. If the product design requires unglazed areas, such as in bisque porcelain (here the veil), these are first carefully covered by hand with wax or a special varnish.

IN MASTER PAINTING

After firing, the Luise bust receives the limited decoration of the “Édition Bleuet” in our master painting: the cornflower, Queen Luise’s favorite flower. Reason enough for KPM Berlin to bring the flowers to life with almost transparent brushstrokes on their portrait.

"The good is not always recognized,
But that's why you don't have to give up being good. This is and remains my principle."
- Queen Louise of Prussia
