The stationary is made from Parian porcelain - the name Parian is derived from Paros, the Aegian Island famous for its beautiful white marble widely used for sculpture by the classical Greeks.
The intricate design demands handcrafting and each piece is made, from start to finish, by Helena. THe pads are painstakingly sanded between firings, when the piece is particularly fragile. The final firing reaches 1240°C, which mades the clay vitreous and robust. It is then polished with a diamond pad to give it a beautiful smooth finish.
