Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg

Porcelain crafting

Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg has been producing fine porcelain since 1747. With its original workshop buildings dating from the 18th century, Nymphenburg is the last pure porcelain manufacturer in the world and has used the same techniques for 271 years. To this day, all the mechanical equipment, like mills, mixing vats and potter’s wheels, is water-powered by the estate’s river. Nymphenburg creates and mixes its own paints. The factory produces 100% handmade porcelain. Even the paste is still produced by hand, taking three years from the initial mix of kaolin, feldspar and quartz to the final product. The strong interaction between contemporary artists and designers and the artisans of the factory creates space for experimentation and ensures that the original idea and concept of the artist is completely realised.
