Pottery

Ceramics and pottery have been around for a very long time. Most of the ceramics you see in museums are extremely fragile and are behind glass. That is not the case here. Within this collection, you can physically touch ancient vessels from the Nile, examine the details of Asian vases from hundreds of years ago, learn the different techniques from artists and potters from around the world, and even draw your own piece.
