Rosenthal’s manufacture of the Junto Stoneware Collection is subject to an extremely elaborate production process. All items are made with natural raw materials, and the firing process, in particular, in connection with special glazing, lends the series its own distinctive style. Junto stoneware is fired with socalled reactive glazing that lends the products extraordinary colour shading. Depending on the thickness of the glazing layer applied, firing temperature and atmospheric firing conditions, varying effects appear on the ceramic surface, such as patterns that look like speckles and a silkmatte, dark shimmer around the edges.
This special process causes the intended crafted look that is typical of all Junto items, with unique colour gradients, which is not a flaw in the product in any way.
