The female elephant Djamila by August Göhring in naturalistic painting. The texture shows traces of an eventful elephant life. This makes for a downright ideal template to capture in porcelain. There is hardly any material better suited to reproducing animal skin than ceramic. Every wrinkle, every shade, every beauty mark, every fine hair of this majestic creature can be depicted with underglaze technique. The finished result is only revealed after the last firing at 1300 degrees Celsius - a surprise included.
