The Blue Painter

A woman sits at her workstation in deep concentration. In her left hand she holds a piece of porous porcelain and with her right hand she collects a mix of pigment and water in the bristles of the brush. Soon flowers, rays and palmettos appear on the white surface and a pattern of almost 250 years is reborn.
Royal Copenhagen’s hand painted porcelain is known all over the world, but
only a few people know how to create it. Every blue painter has years of experience with the difficult art of blue painting and it is merely by virtue of their abilities that the hand painted patterns of Royal Copenhagen are brought to life.
The delicate craft is passed on through generations and it is only with several years of practice that the blue painters master the fine craft to perfection.

The One Try

Bringing the hand painted collections of Royal Copenhagen to life is by no means as effortless as it looks; the brush must be managed by a hand that never shakes. Too much water, and the colour will be too light, too little and the colour will be too dark. A Royal Copenhagen blue painter only has one try per porcelain piece to create hand painted perfection. When she paints a Blue Fluted Plain dinnerplate it requires 762 flawless brush strokes.

Every Royal Copenhagen blue painter has her own artistic style; her own way to lead the brush, shape the leaves, produce the flower buds, the rays and the nuances in the blue colour. To the untrained eye, the variations in the Royal Copenhagen hand painted patterns are imperceptible, but the trained eye will be able to identify the painter by her porcelain.


For more than two centuries, Royal Copenhagen has been one with the blue. The blue colour grows wild on the surface of the precious porcelain, flows like waves in the trademark on the underside and connects each piece to the roaring sounds and blue blood of Denmark.
