Kitty Kahane. New Stories on Old Porcelain
I am an illustrator. Since my studies
at the Kunsthochschule Berlin Weißensee
I have been working freelance
for publishers and companies that
produce carpets, cloths, fabrics and services.
My work as a lecturer has taken me
to many places in the world,
to Pakistan, India, Indonesia, China
Kyrgyzstan and many other places
from different cultures that inspire
Since my youth I have been
enchanted by porcelain.
Form and color, I researched all
processes of porcelain
production in the porcelain factory
in Meissen. After studying
illustration,I worked as a
freelance décor designer
for Rosenthal AG. After many years
of book illustration, the time
has come for me to give forgotten,
dusty, magnificent or simple porcelain
a new face. And that is, in the best
sense of the word, a sustainable idea.
I collect old pieces, paint them
by hand, let them burn, so they stay
beautiful over the long term.
Unique items are created, none of
which are the same as the other. All
service parts can be purchased as
a set or individually as a small
piece of jewelry or a present.
A good idea can be found in the ability
to combine the porcelains I decorated
with a simple design. You can find
examples on my website.
Main parts of a service, such as a coffee
or teapot, are limited to 13 pieces per theme.
I name the painted pieces after
film classics or film characters,
according to my topic.
I also offer individual requests for
specific occasions, such as weddings or birthdays.
Please understand that there may be small color deviations and that the delivery time
does not correspond to normal delivery
times depending on the effort. That is
why I recommend individual arrangements by
mail or phone
