In 2014, the Neue Porzellanfabrik Triptis GmbH invited five artists, including Helmut Frank, Patrick Loughran, Lyn Riccardo, Arnie Zimmerman and Lida Tarakhovsky, to work in their porcelain factory in Triptis, Germany. These artists, with their diverse skillsets and backgrounds, began an ongoing collaboration that has probed porcelain’s cultural meanings and material possibilities.
This project is part of the Windgate Contemporary Craft Initiative at ASU Art Museum and is supported by the Windgate Charitable Foundation. Additional support from the Eschenbach Porzellan Group and the artists.
