Future Lights in Ceramics at Meissen Manufactory

At the beginning of May the Future Lights in Ceramics 2016/2017 stayed at Staatliche Porzellan-Manufaktur Meissen GmbH for two weeks.

Both, Meissen Manufactory as well as the Future Lights were very enthusiastic and benefited from this workshop. The Future Lights were supervised and helped by some porcelain workers who all were very keen and thrilled to see, what complete different approaches and ideas these young people had when using the same forms, decors, and patterns.

In January, the third Future Lights in Ceramics competition was launched. This year, the theme is “Diversity – of materials, people, methods, approaches, and cultures”. 62 applications were submitted from candidates with 21 nationalities originating from 16 countries.

In July, the panel is going to choose the 18 candidates who will be invited to present themselves and their work during the competition which will be held this year at the beginning of October in Stoke-on-Trent.
