Michael Wainwright

Since its founding in 1710, the Meissen porcelain manufactory has stood for the highest-quality porcelain and the utmost workmanship, represented around the world with the insignia of two Crossed Swords in cobalt blue. The quality of Meissen porcelain has its beginnings in the manufactory’s own mine near the city of Meissen, where the purest kaolin is sourced daily. This white clay is the key to the striking radiance of Meissen porcelain. The precise blending of kaolin with native feldspar and quartz has been refined in Meissen over the past 300 years and is still completed by hand to this day. Charting new territory in the creation of new porcelain objects is as much a part of the manufactory’s tradition as the observation of its own rich heritage. For this, Meissen can draw on the world’s oldest and most comprehensive archive of historic models and plaster moulds, making it possible to reproduce practically any form to ever come out of the manufactory. Meanwhile, the manufactory’s paint laboratory, while constantly formulating new, vibrant hues, closely guards the formulas for some 10,000 different porcelain colours, enabling the Meissen painters to revive every nuance of historic patterns true to the originals. This rich trove of historical inspiration in Meissen’s Triebischtal, not far from the Saxon capital of Dresden, is combined with peerless craftsmanship to create intricate figurines, largeformat sculptures, exquisite dining services, and oneof-a-kind works of art that attain the highest standards of exclusivity and individuality.

Michael Wainwright is an accomplished American sculptor and jeweller who has mastered combining fine china with 24k gold and platinum. Michael’s life-long passion is in creating functional works of art in fine china, porcelain, glass and metal. From the cathedrals of Italy to the windswept dunes of Cape Cod, Michael’s creations draw inspiration from some of the world’s most beautiful destinations. Michael Wainwright products are sold worldwide in national and independent luxury goods retailers.
