What is the correct body posture to prevent back injuries? Transporting heavy furnitures and large objects in an incorrectly way is one of the most common causes of back pain. You can reduce this risk by ensuring and using the stronger muscles (quadriceps) of the legs so they can be used to do the hardest and the most of the work. Keep your back completely straight every time. Bend your knees to lift the objects from the knees level. In case of a heavy box, kneel beside the box with feet about 30 cm apart. To raise it, rest it on the body. It is important that when you are lifting heavy furnitures you should bend your knees rather than your back. To leave a heavy piece of furniture on the floor it has to adopt the same principle, not to bend your body under any circumstances and always using the legs. For transporting luggage or shopping bags, you should try to balance the weights on both arms. It is less harmful to your back, to carry all the weight like this, rather that with one arm, which will make you lean to one side forcing your spine.     How to transport the porcelain figurines of Lladro and others? The most convenient, given the fragility of porcelain figurines, is to transport them with boxes (specially with the lladro box), but always, being involved with very soft material, foam or bubble wrap. When the porcelain contains many flowers, slender fingers or shapes with a high risk of failure, it is best to wrap them as little as possible and try to hold the porcelain box from the base. What the company, Cocowif, usually do with susceptible delicate porcelains of breakage is to put soft materials, and try to attach the porcelain figurine from the base. The materials we use are subject to the bubble wrap, bags of compressed air, rock wool or even cartons wrapped strategically placed; causing the porcelain figurine to be absolutely immobilized. With this procedure, we managed to avoid having to wrap the figurine of porcelain of Lladro, from the top and achieve by this way to reduce the risk of breakage at the most delicate moment of the process, which is the time when we have to take out the figurine of porcelain Lladro from the box. Remember, that the most important thing is to set correctly the porcelain to the base and for large figurines is very important to hold them with rapes from the trunk, of the figurine, but always being protected with bubble wrap between the porcelain and the...

Which are the special features of porcelain figurines of Lladro?

Which are the special features of porcelain figurines of Lladro?

Posted by on Aug 16, 2015 in English, Lladro, Lladró advices, Retro furniture | 0 comments

What are the special characteristics of Lladro porcelain figurines? One of the most attractive features of artistic porcelain figurines of Lladro is its variety of motives, which consist of scenes from everyday life. Dancers, men and women, children playing, playing sports, dancing, working … but there are also animals, imaginary figurines of classical myths, angels, different animals, birds, trees and flowers, hats, ballet shoes. This diversity creates a small universe of beauty. But it is not only this variety of reasons what it is reflected in the art of small and large Lladro porcelain figurines, also they express inner states of mind of the figurines represented. Among them, feelings, like love, innocence, joy, purity, faith and dreams they are manifested through their expressions and movements. Another feature of the art of figurines of porcelain Lladro is the delicate design of the figurines, as shown in the series of dancers and other women and men with hats, lovers and hunters. The colors of the Lladro porcelain figurines, another special features to take in mind, are soft and with pastel shades. It is a creative and unique range of colors, that remind to figurines of Royal Copenhagen porcelain, with shades of blue and gray brown. The differences with figurines of porcelain Royal Copenhagen are obvious when they are compared closely. Royal copenhagen colors represent the sky and sea in northern Europe, however the warm blue colors and toasted Lladro porcelain figurines are artificially created by an artist. The company Lladro has more than 5,000 color samples, but almost only neutral pastel shades are used. The reason of Lladro to use these colors in many shapes in its production is that the tone of the colors favors the emergence of a poetic atmosphere in porcelain figurines. Another characteristic feature of figurines of porcelain Lladro is the finish of the porcelain. The porcelain figurines are formed by dozens of plaster casts. After binding, and polished and smooth the surface. The final details are recorded with proper utensils. In the end, as I explained in another article of the blog, porcelain figures are glazed and fired. The firing temperature of the porcelain between 1,350 and 1,400 degrees, making them far tougher than brittle clay figurines with metallic enamel. Cocowif is a lover of retired figurines of porcelain Lladró. We are fanatic of the way they made shapes and colors at their first years of production, in those difficult years of the XX century....

Which new issues from the company Lladró can we find for gifts and decoration in this summer? Lladro we still making us to fall in love with them, with their new creations and ideas. This time, they have elaborated a very useful porcelain figurine for gifts and decorations, for this time of year, where most of us have a few days of holidays at the beach. This porcelain figurine honors the surf, water sport consisting in sliding over the waves on a board. Surfing dates back to over 500 years in the Polynesian islands, but it was from the 1960s, when it began to be learned and practiced. The places with bigger boom of practitioners are Australia, the United States and southern Europe. The difficulty of this sport lies in the knowledge of being able to keep the balance, having in consideration the speed and the different forms of the waves. How is this new issue of Lladro porcelain of a surfer on a board? This figurine is biscuit porcelain in matte finish. Its dimensions are 41 cm long x 24 cm high. Its price is 375.00 euros, so as you can see, is not very high for the size of the piece. Remember that the biscuit is white porcelain, most often unglazed. The motive of this figurine is a surfer on a wave on a board in equilibrium position. As you can see the artists of Lladro do not leave any detail out of their minds and take into account even the movement of the hair to the wind. The reason for wanting to express such realism, in the movement and in the ways of the porcelain figurines is due to try to give to the porcelain figurine, a very common feature of pop art. The company Lladro tries to give to their new creations, a touch of all the new trends in decoration and new tastes and hobbies of the potencial customers. From my point of view, this porcelain figurine is a very nice and original gift for surfers. It is also a figurine that by virtue of their shape and color, are perfectly suited to today’s decors, where the faint light colors and have its peak. Similarly, as I have mentioned in other articles on this blog, these porcelain figurines can be perfectly adapted to the most traditional decorations, where the color of the furniture is dark.
