Porcelain has good transparency making the possibility to cross between casual and formal dinning styles. It can be used everyday because of its durability and strength, but the patterns can also be used on the finest dinning tables in a formal setting because of its sophisticated styling. Porcelain is regarded as the most refined of all ceramics.
