Gmundner Keramik Manufaktur produces fine art of tableware pottery. 100 % made in Austria.
HANDMADE SINCE 1492
Handcrafted with love and care:
The reason, why our products are so unique and precious, is the well preserved traditional handcraft at Gmundner Keramik. Each piece is worked on more than sixty times by our skilled master craftsmen and -women. It is these people who assure, that each piece is perfect in its look and feel. Human hands form, paint and decorate; each piece is slightly different and a one-of-its-kind. While you will find the same flowers and designs on each piece, they remain humanly different. We manufacture our products following an old-style recipe. Since centuries, we preserve and continue the old way of making true Gmundner Keramik pieces. All our attention and care is to keep the traditional spirit and identity of our products alive.
The fine art of pottery:
To begin with, we prepare our clay-based raw-material according to a special Gmundner Keramik recipe. In a second step, we shape our tableware and home accessory products: Plates are turned, coffee-pots and milk jugs are made in special moulds. Also the moulds are made in house, since we can only use them for 40 pieces. Before it is glazed for the first time, we manually perfectionate the form and shape of each piece. Now is the time for the heart of our manufacturing: the painting and decorating department. Skilled master craftsmen and -women create the Gmundner Keramik colours, hand-paint and hand-spray each piece. Only the final glazing gives our products the characteristic shine and outlook.
Each piece is unique:
The heart and soul of our product is the painting and decorating: fifty women and one man, all trained and skilled in the Austrian State-organized Guild System. It is them who manually work on each line flower or deer on your favourite piece. Sometimes, one piece takes as much as one day to finish. Artistic talent is what you need to qualify for this job. But not only this: you need agility, a perfect eye-sight, a quiet and precise hand and a good deal of patience and love for your work. All this is what you feel when you hold the piece in your hand.
