The EU project “Ceramics and its Dimensions”, which was lead by Porzellanikon, came to an end after four years. The interdisciplinary project has provided lasting impulses – with a view to the history of ceramics as well as their design and production. Two scientific sessions were held within the framework of the project: Belgrade in 2015 and Stoke-on-Trent in 2017. The stated aim of the two events was to make the ceramic heritage fruitful for the creativity of tomorrow and to foster dialogue between research and society. A core topic of the project was actively shaping the future. Concern for cultural tradition goes hand in hand with the promotion of artistic and technical innovation. In the module “Shaping the Future” students from Helsinki, Berlin, Belfast and Copenhagen came to a workshop in the porcelain factory KAHLA/Thüringen Porzellan GmbH. At the same time outstanding young artists were honored as “Future Lights in Ceramics”. The Potteries Museum & Art Gallery in Stoke-on-Trent provided a central building block with his reciepe book for educational work with clay.
