Indygo Ceramic Studio in Lodz

Another trip to Lodz (Poland) and another visit to the Off Piotrkowska center, the cluster of creative businesses located in a converted textile factory right in the centre of the city. One of the beautiful bright spaces there is occupied by Indygo Ceramic Studio, set up a few years ago by an artist and teacher Dominika Karczewska.

It is quite an achievement to successfully launch and sustain a creative business like this in our difficult times. I am full of admiration for small art and craft studios that manage to stay in business and flourish.

Indygo does this by coming up with new ideas of how to be useful and relevant in the local community. Apart from her own creative work, Dominika runs regular ceramic workshops for children and adults, linking in with local schools and charities.

The classes are fun and they are well attended. Children love working with clay! Some of the young students' work on the shelves is waiting to be glazed and placed in the beautiful new kiln.

This bowl is a nice example of Indygo's own production. I just love this color combination:

Dominika incorporates some of the ceramic elements into her jewellery pieces.

Next time you are in Lodz, visit Indygo in the Off Piotrkowska center. You can join Indygo's Facebook page for more information here.
