Winterthur Ceramics Conference

From All Points of the Compass:
Ceramics Travel the World


April 23–24, 2015



This year, we focus on ceramics that traveled the world—from China to the US to Mexico and beyond. Upon arrival, some of these world travelers, in turn, inspired the creation of new wares.


  • Lectures presenting new research by Winterthur staff and respected visiting scholars.
  • Workshops with opportunities to get hands-on access to Winterthur collections.

Registration opens on January 21, 2015. For information or to register, download the conference brochure or call 800.448.3883.
