Günther Raithel Foundation – Educational Initiative KAHLA kreativ

Named after Günther Raithel who re-established the KAHLA/Thüringen Porzellan GmbH, the non-profit foundation is dedicated to the advancement of education, culture, science and research around porcelain as well as related materials and associated topics.

It focuses on the realisation of the „Kahla kreativ“ project, which inspires and supports the exploration of porcelain by ceramists, designers, artists and students. In workshops, creative talents can explore new ways of porcelain production and design thereby advancing this cultural technique through innovative approaches. In addition, the foundation organises exhibitions, scientific symposiums and other educational events and awards research and international scholarships to support the
advancement of young designers. Another focus is the scientific analysis of the history of Thuringian porcelain, in particular from the production in Kahla.
