In the serial combination of patterned cups, plates and space-consuming vessels, the ceramics of Corinna Petra Friedrich arouse creative collecting pleasure.

She appreciates clay as a simple and honest material, rolls it out into plates and designs the surfaces using transfer printing, screen printing, engobes, monotypes and other interventions.

Intuitively cut out pieces she puts together and is inspired by the meeting of patterns and colours. In this creative process of skill and virtuosity of her hands she directs.

Ceramist Rosi Steinbach unfolds all facets of her ability to simultaneously capture her wonderful talent of realistic expression and imaginative abstraction.

Under the brand "Steinbach Keramik" she assembles her collection of lovingly designed faiences, tableware and unique vessels. She also offers the individual production of room and facade decoration and, as a further inspiration, realistically modelled animal heads and figures with irresistible charm.

Diving away from all pigeonhole thinking, the true artist Rosi Steinbach inspires with her ceramic busts and free objects commenting on the states of the world. In captivatingly precise physiognomies she mediates between classic and pop, daring a fascinating and irritating balancing act between tradition and modernity, pragmatically documenting and yet creatively fabricating.

The texture of paper fascinates the multi-award winning paper artist Kristina Rothe. She reflects on the origin of paper production.

From pure white pulp she creates delicately structured paper surfaces and shapes them into archaic vessels which, emphasised by sensual structures and accents, capture the light.

She finds her great theme in the creation of individual paper urns, which combine ephemeral lightness and transience. Deliberately kept in white, these funeral vessels are intended to symbolise a new beginning. An alternative to conventional funeral culture, characterised by black and heaviness. An attempt to make the farewell dignified and aesthetic.

Impeccable purity, tactile surfaces, delicate pastel colours and refined decorations characterise the masterfully turned porcelain vessels by Susan Heise.

At the potter's wheel she turns her vessels with great pleasure and energy, which she passes on to her objects in the process of creation. The elegance and precious charisma of her pieces is captivating.

The handmade individualises every detail and emphasises the thickness of the material, the curves of the form, the density of the surface structure, the glaze, the height and the width.

The humorous and decorative products of designer Karin Sehnert are unmistakable. In her small porcelain manufactory she makes the steps from the design to the finished object visible, even for those who want to try it themselves.

Of course this needs a good idea, but it also requires meticulous planning, technical know-how and a lot of experience.

Since 2012 Karin Sehnert has been challenging the "Haiglück" with her own workshop and design office. This is all about product development in the materials porcelain, glass and metal - from the idea to the production stage – also for external clients.

Since 2016, ceramist Helene Scharge has been specialising in the development of a utility tableware made of handmade, through-dyed porcelain in her own porcelain workshop.

The multi-functionality of the individual pieces creates a pleasant reduction to a few, balanced clear forms. These serve all essential requirements, are harmoniously coordinated with each other and effectively accentuate food and drinks.

The production of this very special collection is truly a technical challenge for the exceptionally experienced porcelain designer.

Anne Kaden is a silversmith, industrial designer and owner of Atelier ANNE KADEN - Schmuck und Gerät (Jewellery and Utensils) in Leipzig.

She combines her expertise in craftsmanship with the research for new and creative forms of expression. On Iceland she discovered how metal and earth can be merged with the heat of fire to create a new and unique piece of jewellery.
wie sich Metall und Erde mit der Hitze des Feuers zu einem neuen, einzigartigen Schmuckstück vereinen lassen.

The fascination and special magic of such creative moments accompany her from then on. She named her unique pieces made of 925 silver „MEMENTO"; they are souvenirs of a place, a person or memories of special moments.
