You forget the shade lamp with human flesh Raúl

No. I didn't forget lampshades from human skin, Raúl. I just chose not to mention them and all the other better-known horrors. The point about this blog-post is that it is not widely known that porcelain - pure and white - was made at Dachau, nor that throughout history terrible tyranny has been required to produce it, including the Satanic factories of Josiah Wedgwood in England.

Señor Auban,
I googled about Josiah Wedgewood a little. It says that he was a gifted potterer and an antiabolitionist. Where can I get the information about the factories?
About evil in the service of banality. The Colombian capo Pablo Escobar had a daughter, Manuela, and she wanted to see a unicorn and as there was no unicorn, Escobar got a horse and a stuck a cow´s horn into the horse´s forehead. Days later the poor horse died after that ugly surgery.

Josiah Wedgwood stole the formula for porcelain (exact proportions are required of kaolin and the other ingredient which in China is petuntse, but which can also be feldspar, ball clay, etc.) from a chemical genius in Bristol, went North, where the ingredients were to be found, and built horrible, Satanic factories to produce the porcelain which made him insanely rich. Porcelain is also called bone china because it sometimes contains ground-up bones - maybe, in the case of Dachau, human ones, but that is a minor detail.

I have never liked it - but then I don't like 'fancy' overworked things. I like peasant pots, raku, modern French stoneware - vessels with character rather than bland refinement.

What Escobar did to the horse reminds me of the case where a gay man in Ireland was murdered by having a 15 cm nail hammered into his head.
