On our travels we stopped at Meissen, a porcelain manufacturer that started in 1710. It makes and paints all its porcelain by hand, using techniques from when it was founded. When we went to the factory it had a really cool exhibit of work by contemporary artists. The artists were from the Middle East, Europe, and Asia. I saw one expat’s work. It was a really great representation of different cultures with references with how they used to, and how they currently use porcelain. I wrote down some but not all of the artist’s names. If you want to look them up here they are:
Khaled Al-Saai, Rokneddin and Rokni Haerizadeh, Birgit Dieker, Xiao Hui Wang, Nja Mahdaoui, and Frank Michaelis
This trip ended in the historical part of Dresden.
