Franz Porcelain interprets the art of fine porcelain by combining the culture of ancient oriental porcelain techniques with contemporary design flair. Franz Collection Porcelain is the intersection of Chinese Tang Dynasty coloration with Western Art Nouveau styling. Franz Collection's highly skilled artisans from Jingde, China (the oldest porcelain capital) employ the finest Chinese clay and glazes, and show their superb undercutting techniques and skills with the delicate sculptured porcelain accents on each piece.
Franz Collection founder Francis Chen is recognized worldwide as a successful artist and entrepreneur. Following his vision to revive the Chinese porcelain art, Chen - who majored in German Literature while attending university and was given the German name "Franz" by his professor - adopted his college nickname and created his own collection of fine porcelain tabletop and decorative accents.
Founded in June 2002 and headquartered in downtown San Francisco, Franz Collection Inc. designs, creates and markets a variety of functional tableware and home decor accessories. The collection includes porcelain tableware, vases and decorative accents, as well as a line of exquisite jewelry.
Items by Franz Collection have received numerous awards and are sold worldwide to prestigious department stores, specialty gift and decorative and home decor businesses. It is evident that Franz Porcelain will continue to develop the long history of Chinese porcelain art into the 21st century.
