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, due to 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 nineteenth century.

According to the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), “Corporate social responsibility is a management concept whereby companies integrate social and environmental concerns in their business operations and interactions with their stakeholders. CSR is generally understood as being the way through which a company achieves a balance of economic, environmental and social imperatives (Triple-Bottom-Line Approach), while at the same time addressing the expectations of shareholders and stakeholders. In this sense it is important to draw a distinction between CSR, which can be a strategic business management concept, and charity, sponsorships or philanthropy. Even though the latter can also make a valuable contribution to poverty reduction, will directly enhance the reputation of a company and strengthen its brand, the concept of CSR clearly goes beyond that.”
