HALF&HALF plates are handcrafted from start to finish. Liquid porcelain mixture is poured into tailor-made plaster molds, where it solidifies over time. Each plate is then dried and carefully prepared for painting: grinded, floated and checked for any imperfections.

After the first baking dishware is passed over to master craftsmen, who decorate it with a special paint – cobalt oxide solution. When wet the paint is dark grey, only becoming bright blue after the long final baking.

Each HALF&HALF piece carries a hallmark on the bottom and has a unique number.

Together with Gzhel Union porcelain factory we have released the first part of dishware collection under HALF&HALF own brand. The cobalt paintings that are dear to many since childhood have been transformed with contemporary shapes and simple, clean proportions. The series was designed by Ann Kulachek.

We have further plans of launching other pieces in complementary design: from plates and saucers to cups and sugar pots. For completists or bare enthusiasts it is a chance to put together a unique set.
