Edition Schloss Molsdorf
White gold for the exhibition Full House
Porcelain collection with handmade collages
Created for the exhibition
20.6.2015 - 20.9.2015
Edition Molsdorf is applied on the porcelain collection "New Baroque" of Porzellan Manufaktur Reichenbach
The porcelain edition Molsdorf was created on the occasion of the exhibition FULL HOUSE at Molsdorf palace. The multi-part dinner service makes reference to the ornaments and motifs in the palace rooms and the associated self-aggrandizement of the erstwhile owner, Count Gotter.
Count Gotter was a gambler and owed a part of his fortune to the two-time winnings in his time just invented lottery. To this and other anecdotes, the edition Molsdorf refers.
The service is decorated with handmade collages, each piece is unique and its “plate story” arises at the moment of decoration.
For the Molsdorf palace banquet hall, the service was assembled in an installation. With the so called Schwarm the porcelain was pouring forth from the fireplace, however this retells the palace legend of how, once upon a time, the ceiling painting in the Molsdorf banquet hall could be lowered and used as a floating table.

White Gold for Bauhaus-University Weimar
For the 20 years jubilee of the faculty Gestaltung/Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, the porcelain patter 2G13 was developed. Within a Ilmgold workshop, students of the Bauhaus-University made pattern collages by hand on almost 260 porcelain pieces. Every plate is unique, every
cup is inimitable.The porcelain was sponsored by KAHLA Thüringen Porzellan. The porcelain dish ware 2G13 was used at the evening dinner events during the jubilee festival.
White gold for Akademie Schloss Solitude
In 2013 Studio Laura Straßer developed a porcelain collage pattern exclusively made for Akademie Schloss Solitude in Stuttgart/Germany. By using sceneries and scans and pictures of local fauna and flora, the
pattern became a particular and willful porcelain decoration. Each pattern is a hand-made collage - so every plate is unique, every cup is inimitable.
Porcelain made in Germany
Since 2009, the river Ilm regularly washes up pieces of gold to its Weimar shores. During the recent cooking event delikatESSEN, Laura Straßer and Kai Meining discovered that a nicely set table is unthinkable without tasteful dinnerware. They promptly organized a widely acclaimed workshop to decorate countless plates and dishes that were later auctioned for a good cause. Demand for unique tableware persisted and thus the idea of a permanent collection distributed
through an online shop was born: Ilmgold.
Since then the team works on novel decors to shake up the white pabulum of tableware! The modern porcelain shapes of Thuringian manufacturer Kahla provide the surface for Ilmgold’s innovative pattern. The collection Made in Germany is thus crafted of only the best regional materials to satisfy the eye.
In 2009 Studio Laura Straßer developed a porcelain collage pattern exclusively made for the dinner event deilkatESSEN. With the support of students of the Bauhaus-University, 160 porcelain pieces became their new unique pattern. The collages were applied by hand - so every
plate is unique, every cup is inimitable. The porcelain dish ware delikatESSEN was used at the evening dinner event by Swiss star chef Victor Imfeld, accompanied by an audio-visual performance by YouAreWatchingUs.
