Anne-Mette Kissow, the designer of the ceramics, produced the first prototypes here in Copenhagen. However, the main production had to be set up in China, which proved to be quite a challenge, because of differences in humidity, water quality and the composition of the raw materials.
It took a lot of research finding the right manufacturer and the right balance of ingredients, to achieve the quality standards we were looking for.
Today, Vipp ceramics are hand made by skilled artisans in a small family owned workshop located halfway between Shanghai and Hong Kong.
On the images below you see how the ceramics are glazed on the inside and water polished by hand on the outside. Each piece is a result of a thorough process from which it obtains a soft surface with a matte look.
