I combine my knowledge as a professional ceramist with my love to recycle and vintage, elegant porcelain dishware. Pieces will be fired after the application of the images in a professional ceramic kiln at a high temperature which is the only way to achieve stability so you can enjoy them in everyday use and images will last and not wear off.

I am always open to create custom orders for weddings, anniversaries, birthdays or any occasion. Feel free to ask:)

I do send worldwide. ETA to Europe is 2-7 days, to US and Australia 7-10 days, to Canada, to countries in Asia and Africa it can take up to a month. Please do keep in mind that on holiday periods ETA can be longer.

Wholesales are possible only for the handmade porcelain jewelry and the bone china ware, my creations based on original vintage tableware from the 50's-70's are mostly unique and therefore not repeatable.

For a multiple purchase of items already available in my shop a discount can be made, please do contact me before placing your order.

I upload new work often, so keep checking back:)

About MoreThanPorcelain

Sales 2,472
On Etsy since 2012

I love giving vintage porcelain a new life

I have been experimenting with printing techniques since 2000. I started experimental by adding simple images on porcelain cups and have been extended on transferring images and nursery rhymes from fairy tales and movies of our childhood but also whimsical and humorous words or phrases on original vintage from the 50's, 60's and 70's (soup tureens, cups, plates, serving platters, teapots, even dinner serving and tea sets).

Thanks to my long experience as a ceramist and my appropriate manned workshop, i was able to transfer the images on the porcelain pieces and fire them after the application of the images at a high temperature in a professional pottery kiln, making them permanent and the items safe for everyday use.

Pieces could be washed in a washing machine, but it's better to avoid doing so because of the golden rims.

I love creating unique, personalized and special gifts for weddings, anniversaries, birthdays or any occasions so feel free to contact me with any custom orders or questions you may have.

In 2015 i have had the honor to be commissioned to create Mary Poppins and Bert themed cups for a big event organized on the 16th of July 2015 on Disneyland Drive, Anaheim with guest star the Hollywood legend Dick Van Dyke.

I would like to share with you a review written by a very dearest client from Canada:
"This is a whimsical tea set that I have the pure delight in using on a daily basis. Not only does it have both beauty and function, I had the joy of designing it with Monika's glorious spirit who authentically embodies the soul of an artist; she is one who fully appreciates that childhood memories of fairy tales and nursery rhymes can forever remind us that hope, magic, and beauty surround us, but our eyes must be open to appreciate it. "
