Liechtenstein
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:

This fine old pattern was created at Herend in the middle of the 19th century. The white border is adorned with festoons and sprays of flowers, each pair of bowed festoons
being followed by a dangling bouquet. The festoons are composed of blue, mauve, red and yellow flowers increasing in size towards the centre of the garland, which shows a
half opened red rose. The fine floral pattern characteristic of Rococo decoration is enriched with scale painting.  It is named after the princely family of Liechtenstein, which
for a century and a half, has used a variant of the Herend pattern that incorporates the family coat of arms.
