For over a thousand years, porcelain represented the foundation of ceramic discipline being a main driving force for world ceramic research . Various efforts to duplicate desired characteristics of Chinese porcelain as whiteness and translucency were unsuccessful due to complexities of porcelain system. Success was achieved only when this effort was supported by governments. This coupled with a systematic research effort in the end of 17-th and in the beginning of 18-th century led to invention of the first European porcelain in Meissen.
