The Festival of High Temperatures is the only artistic event in Poland during which artists from around the world share their knowledge and experience with other fans of “hot art” showing the audience their work from behind the scenes

During the twelfth Festival, which took place between June 21 and 23, 2019, it was possible to take part in numerous practical displays, workshops and exhibitions in three sections—ceramics, glass and metal. Creators from around the world as well as the artists associated with the Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Art and Design presented their works and skills.

“This Festival brings together different artistic disciplines—glassmaking, ceramics and metal sculpture. It proves that despite the fact that we use different materials in art, we have something in common—high temperature. Work with fire is very demanding and exhausting, but it gives a lot of satisfaction and unique results.”

The Festival was accompanied by the conference “Fire and Art” which took place on Friday and Sunday, July 21 and 23, 2019.


The Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Art and Design offers top of the range art and design education on three levels—Bachelor, Master and PhD. We are a state university and we educate students on full time and part time basis in four faculties: Faculty of Painting and Sculpture, Faculty of Interior Architecture and Design, Faculty of Ceramics and Glass and Faculty of Graphics and Media Art. Our main building is located in the historical part of Wroclaw and the new building—The Centre of Applied Arts and Innovation—is a state of art building with ultra-modern studios and facilities.
