a piece of Art Food history

As we are starting the new- already fourth (!!!) edition of the Art Food project, I’d like to present catalogs from previous editions which were never published on line. Please browse through these wonderful designs while the students from Pratt Institute and Cracow Fine Art Academy are working on completely new stuff! Fresh Art Food […]

fun with casting

As the hardest job is already behind the group and the most frustrating but eventually extremely rewarding in front of them, they can now purely enjoy the easy slip casting process. The molds are well done so all pieces come out of them smooth and beautiful, to the delight of students. However they are not […]

weekend brake report

As the temperatures in Poland reached +32 Celsjus and the heat in the factory became unbearable, there was nothing else to choose but leave the molds for fast over-the-weekend dry and escape from hard work. Lublin was the target. Often referred to as the capital of eastern Poland, Lublin is the largest and the fastest […]

The end of the first week

Working with plaster was so intense, hard and time consuming, so we hardly noticed it’s already Friday! The students were very much involved and dedicated to making their molds as fast as possible, but without proper and professional guidance it would not be possible to finish them succesfully. During this first week they have already […]

The workshop has started

It’s Monday and all the students have arrived in Cmielow yesterday afternoon. Some after a very long journey did not even have a chance to rest, due to an early wake up call this morning and full mobilization for work. The first week is dedicated to plaster: correcting and adjusting the models, making the moulds […]

fast forward

Art Food 2014 in the making. A long process of creating a porcelain piece can be frustrating, yet always rewarding at the end of the road. If you are able to quickly adjust, understand the material and are VERY patient, you have a high chance to obtain pristine and elegant objects. Here is how they […]

Last days

The last three weeks went really fast. We did not even realize that there are only two days left to our departure from Cmielow… All works are being finished and packed, divided into three groups and marked: WROCLAW, LONDON, NEW YORK. These intense weeks were well spent, filled with hard work and are summed up […]

Working working

The workshops in Cmielow Design Studio have already started. Poland welcomed students from UK and USA with beautiful weather, calming countryside, fresh fruits and homemade cooking in contrast to the sweaty and noisy industrial enviroment. Both inspiring, drove the students to hard work, discipline and new interpretetions of their projects. We are half way through […]
