Linde Burkhardt’s ‘The Dowry of the Princess of Trebizond’ on view at the International Design Museum

Designer Linde Burkhardt is showing in collaboration with Die Neue Sammlung – The International Design Museum Munich – her project “Die Mitgift der Prinzessin von Trapezunt” (The Dowry of the Princess of Trebizond). Combining ceramics with Murano glass, wood and marble, she has produced seven life-sized and out-sized sculptural objects as free ceramic works.
