MOSA FABRICA II
It could not be more suiting: in the Decor factory, the former factory of Mosa Porselein Maastricht, Centre Céramique will show a taste of its exhibition Mosa Fabrica II, which will be opened in December.
Workshop ‘De Vogel’
Centre Céramique and Vormstof have a common goal: to put the underexposed intangible heritage of porcelain back into the limelight. Designday offers them a platform for this. The workshop that Vormstof has developed suits this goal. The founders of Vormstof, Jo Schoenmakers and Marjo de Vries, have also been inspired by the designs of Edmond Bellefroid for years in their own work. Especially the iconic’ The Bird’. The Maastricht visual artist and designer, most famous in the fifties, made this legendary ceramic bird in the time that he was at the head of the Mosa design team that flourished then. The work, from the depot of Centre Céramique, comes to life as a kind of muse in two Designday workshops renewed.
