Surface details. The development of Landscape (2008) took a total of two years. It is characterized by three-dimensional reliefs, which on the one hand lend the porcelain a delicate, translucent look reminiscent of the famous paragon of Chinese rice grain porcelain, while on the other the decoration calls to mind open lacework such as traditional Italian and Spanish craft workers have been making for centuries.
