The Pratt Institute of New York and the Krakow Academy of Fine Arts joined forces to rethink the future of ceramics for food during a three weeks workshop.
Two leading design schools from Poland and Brooklyn have joined forces in the fourth edition of “Art Food”, a project exploring the crossroads of design and food. Over the course of a three-week-long workshop, twelve students from the Pratt Institute of New York and the Faculty of Industrial Design of the Krakow Academy of Fine Arts worked together to combine ceramics and culinary arts.
The project’s objective was to spawn original yet still functional ceramics – vessels to display and showcase culinary art, emphasizing the beauty of food and acting as a canvas for the work of ambitious chefs and food stylists. The young designers convened for a workshops at the Ćmielów Design Studio in the Ćmielów and Chodziez Polish Porcelain Factories. Sponsored by Culture.pl, the project was curated by Marek Cecuła and coordinated by Dagmara Rogers.
