Hedwig Rotter, born in carinthia, in the south of austria, studied at the university of applied arts in Vienna and at escola de disseny elisava Barcelona product design concentrating on ceramics. For over 10 years she has been working in the art and design area, 2001 she founded nono pd – no.nonsense, in july 2007 she established the label mano design.
Her products are as well functional as creative with a humorous angel. Each piece is individually crafted in several production steps. The motives on the porcelain are applied via screenprint. All mano products are hand made as single copies, limited editions, small series or commission pieces in a vienna studio. The high quality china used for these artefacts is burned at 1260°C (2300°F). mano design positions itself as non-industrial, but high-quality manufacturer.

In our MiaDeRoca shop in Salzburg we sell procelain of the series "Landpartie". Landpartie can be translated as outing, but it means much more – there is a whiff of nostalgy, a slight patina, maybe some bourgois even monarchic or dandyesque subtone in this word. And all this is transported in lovely mugs with a cow print, cross-stitch borders on heart-formed bowls, motives of red deers, roe bucks, or accesories like a candle holder with an antler or an espressi set with two small mugs on a tray. And we also have some wonderful procelain of the fairy tale series with motives of winged creatures or the frog king. Not being a morning person is tough, but getting up and taking some coffe of one of the cup-and-saucer integrated things which say something like "good morning, sunshine" or "nice day" – even your morning will start a little better. And that is what we love design for: function with a better feeling.
In our Alpine Online Shop MiaDeRoca we offer some of the wonderful mano design products:
