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.

Jewellery artist Florian Milker formulates the motivation of his jewellery objects himself:

“In my work I try to elicit a symbolic character from the objects that surround me. There is a meaning in their source that refers to our needs.

The objects of my inspirations are already jewelry before I transfer them to the body. The transformation, however, creates a new context that can be amusing but also questionable. Making jewelry is my search for the fragments of our lost naivety in the sandbox of life.”

Florian Milker is interested in the playful combination and imitation possibilities of different materials offered by new generative manufacturing technologies such as 3D printing, milling and vacuum casting.

The goldsmith and designer Luise Neugebauer knows the art of enlivening the classical jewellery repertoire with lightness and refined surprises.

Unusual materials such as porcelain foil and graphic elements become a natural part of her jewellery, made of recycled gold and silver.

Using her jewellery collections, which playfully follow the philosophy of "less is more" without much pomp, she creates individual pieces of jewellery made to measure and for every occasion.

The traditional craft fascinates custom shoemaker Sascha Helm more than his learned profession of orthopaedic shoemaker.

So he trained as a journeyman in Austria and learned the classical profession from Rudolf Scheer&Söhne in Vienna.

His customers can now benefit from the accumulated experience of both orientations. Sascha Halm provides them with individually handcrafted bespoke shoes made of high-quality materials, with excellent craftsmanship and in a form that is completely tailored to their wishes.

Each custom-made shoe is a unique piece and an investment in health.

For the architect Angela Wandelt, wearing hats is an expression of personality and individuality. She herself has been wearing and collecting hats since her youth and taught herself the craft of hat making.

She finally founded "Gela-Hats" and created a place for very individual fashion in Leipzig. Soon her creations were also enthusiastically received at the trade fairs in New York, Berlin, Hamburg and Vienna.

"Fashion is ephemeral. Style never" This insight of Coco Chanel has been adopted by the hat designer.

The Leipzig master tailor Jan Suchy, in the early 90s top of his class in his journeyman's examination, learned from his own experience, from old master garment makers and from old suits he cut up.

He analysed the freehand English cuts, the loose Italian ones and the meticulous German ones. A natural talent with a penchant for detail, he makes suits, classic in form, casual in appearance, comfortable to wear.

Every seam, every cut, every drape is right. He is concerned with balance, the points of the body, shoulders, sleeves and waist. Jan Suchy proudly calls himself a "craftsman" and delivers tailor-made pieces of master craftsmanship, pieces for eternity.
