Almost tree weeks had passed since the students’ arrival in Cmielow Design Studio. A lot has been accomplished. We already went through mold making, casting, bics firing, glazing, high firing and are now working on decorations. Tomorrow, we will be making the final selection of pieces that will go for the exhibition, it’s only a week left to the opening in Concordia, Poznan.
Everybody is exhausted but the results are stunning. The students acknowledge that the have learned more that they expected. Working in the industrial environment and going through all the production stages gave the knowledge, that students could not have gained any other way. It also gave them understanding why porcelain is so expensive! It is really hard to make a perfect piece and there is a lot to correct and change along the way to the final product.
The Art Food project is also very well received by the factory’s authorities. There will be a chance for production for some students who developed the most interesting, production adaptable and commercially valuable pieces.
