Hannah Christenson

Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur

Freunden von Freunden is starting a new series with Be Berlin / Berlin Partner that features creatives and entrepreneurs’ workplaces. Their first post introduces Jörg Woltmann, the owner of the Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur (Royal Porcelain Factory) in Berlin.

“I didn’t know how tedious porcelain production would be until I bought KPM.” To this day, about eighty percent of the products are crafted by hand. “Of course we would profit with the digitization of things like 3D scanners.

Matt Wisniewski

Matt Wisniewski is an artist who makes surreal collages by combining appropriated fashion photography and portraits with nature and architectural photos. I love how the landscapes and cityscapes interact with the figures’ different surfaces. It’s fun to explore each photo and try to find where one image ends and another begins.










Prints with collage by Matt Wisniewski and photography by Derrick Leung can be purchased here.
