Zwinger

Our contact Olaf Stoy, is friends with Heike Ulbricht who does porcelain restoration, and gave us an incredible tour of the Zwinger along with the collection that is not exhibited at the museum. This piece shown here was originally conceived to be 10 meters high, which would be a major accomplishment for porcelain. Olaf is working on some pieces for this monument for restoration purposes also. The works at the Zwinger are probably the most complex and dynamic objects I have ever seen in porcelain and have opened up my mind to grand concepts with this material.
