For a long time glazes were produced with additives that are no longer used today. Tiles and borders show patterns for which a complete cast is no longer available. Then the historical pattern consists only of fragments. The new ceramic has to fit in. It needs a lot of ceramic knowledge. Knowledge and people who deal intensively with reproduction. In Ransbach-Baumbach there is: The m&r ceramic manufactory. Shaped bricks, clinker bricks, window sills, reveals and other building ceramics are individually produced in small to medium sized series.
