"Art is the elixir of my life", as Prof. Heinz Werner himself once put it. It was this sense of passion that made him one of the greatest porcelain painters of the present age. "Elves in Flowers" shows two of these dainty ethereal beings rising up out of water lilies, one of them playing the flute. Viktoria Streichert borrows from many of Werner's own works by bathing her motif in soft romantic overglaze colours, slightly blurred, causing the wall picture to resemble a watercolour. The elves' wings are coloured in sifted gilt, whilst tooled gilding injects added glitter into the motif.
