Lithophane, cork oak leaf
Lithophane, white unglazed porcelain:
-high part, unglazed cork oak leaf decoration, cut by hand,
-low part, thin unglazed cup.
The ornament wakes up in transparency thanks to the light and shadow play created by the illuminated candle, which reveals the precision of the know-how of the Carpenet House.
Lithophany, invented in 1827 by Paul de Bourgoing, is a traditional process of engraving on a fine biscuit of unglazed porcelain.
