Delain, a blend of ‘designer’ and ‘porcelain’ is a Melbourne-based ceramics studio representing the contemporary ceramists of the world’s porcelain capital, Jingdezhen, China.
Jingdezhen has had a profound connection to ceramic making since the 10th century, and is celebrated for its rich artisanal history. Its popularity and trademark for superior, innovative craftsmanship has given rise to a new class of ceramic designers who have brought the mark of the maker back to modern product design.
Delain’s ceramists provide a unique and traditional approach to producing design objects, and daily ceramic wares. Using kaolin clay to craft the highest quality porcelain, their practice stems from Jingdezhen’s artisanal heritage.
