Quality is integral to the culture, aspirations and mission of the brand. Bernardaud imposes exacting standard and commitment to excellence at every step of a lengthy manufacturing process. Each fine porcelain object is the work of many skilled professionals. Our artisans - from modeler to the colorist, finisher or transfer decorator - draw, shape, enamel, assemble, decorate and inspect each object by hand.
Each artisan verifies that all pieces meet the Bernardaud quality criteria. This is vital as each step in the fabrication process depends on the previous one and must be executed perfectly in preparation for the next. The quality of a piece of porcelain can be expressed as the sum of time required for its manufacture and for successive drying and firing operations. For instance, it takes one week and more than fifty artisans to complete a teapot. The skill of these master craftsmen is responsible for creating beauty in the lines of a vase, the design of a bowl or the decoration of a plate.
