Artists and sculptors involved in the action will be able to realize their ideas on the creation of new sets, vases, sculptures, souvenirs, decorations and compositions, Mr. Piotrovsky. From June 1 to October 29 the Lomonosov china factory will let them work at its art laboratory and provide them with necessary equipment and materials. Factory's workers will be ready to help them if necessary. According to factory's director general Nikolai Gordeyev, the best works created at the China Academy will be exhibited in the Hermitage in December. The best works will be presented to the museum. Agreements on mass production of chinaware at the Lomonosov china factory can be concluded.
