Mark P. Williamson Stone Sculptor
European Flower
Inspired by his travels in China, Williamson in the fall of 2000 conceived and designed an art piece especially for the best
European porcelain makers.  The Herend Porcelain Company of Hungary took an interest in Williamson's ideas, and the Herend
Porcelain Bust series was born.
Williamson's passion and artistic achievements led to his selection as the exclusive designer and architect of the unique Herend
Porcelain bust.   Like nothing ever before seen or created.
In 2004, the bust decorated in the Gödöllõ (red Asian) pattern received an award at the National Ceramics Juried Exhibition in
San Angelo, Texas.  This same piece was selected as the only sculpture to appear on the cover of Art & Antique's 2005 - 2006
"Insider's guide".

About the pattern:
The central motif of the Eton pattern consists of an especially beautiful, stylized peony. The colour range is reminiscent of the glowing pinks of the Famille rose category of
Chinese porcelain, where the subtle shades of a peony make a favourite motif. For the peony was the queen of flowers in the Far East, as it symbolized riches, nobility,
love and womanly beauty. Here the peony is accompanied by leaves and buds and surrounded by scattered sprigs of blossom. The rim has a gleaming line of gold. The
Eton decor is made in six colour variants.
