Historically, Gzhel is the name of the region close to Moscow which includes 27 villages. The region gave the name to a famous craft, due to presence of porcelain clay, perfectly suitable for pottery production, and a school of artists promoting unique painting techniques. The manufacturing process is multistage and time-consuming. First, a gypsum mould of the future product is made. Next, liquid porcelain mass is poured into the prepared mould. After the porcelain hardens and takes the form of the mould, the firing is performed. The products are painted with cobalt with the help of a squirrel brush. A special technique is used, when each successive stroke is different from the previous one and has a wide range from deep and dark tones to light and bright ones.
