On the way to Dresden

sketch book, travel

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
