Cultural heritage revival through restauration of an old local craf
ADEPT, with the support of Camelia Botnar Foundation and the Saschiz Municipality, have established and opened a permanent Pottery Workshop in Saschiz whose aim is to revive the traditional crafts of the Târnava Mare area, by combining traditional techniques of pottery with the benefits of modern technology, thereby enhancing the quality and strength of these works of art, and to encourage tourism and education, providing tourists and schoolchildren with the opportunity to take part in pottery workshops.
Our pottery is available for purchase in the Saschiz Tourist Information Centre. We can also execute personalised items for you, upon request.
Saschiz pottery is distinct due to the cobalt blue of the pieces, on which white motifs are hand-painted. This type of ceramic was created in the 7th century, but sadly, for unknown reasons, the formula has been lost in the meantime.
Through its perfect form and technique, the Saxon decoration in cobalt blue occupied a special place in Transylvanian ceramics and captured the interest of researchers since the end of the 19th century.
