The French Porcelain Society Symposium | Céramiques sans Frontières
The Wallace Collection, London, 19–20 June 2015

Organized by Sebastian Kuhn

Screen Shot 2015-06-09 at 2.59.42 PMThe 2015 French Porcelain Society Symposium examines the transfer of ceramic technologies and designs over the shifting borders of Europe. It represents something of a departure for the Society in that it explores the wider ceramic traditions of pottery and porcelain across the continent. We are thrilled to be able to present so many distinguished speakers, and to welcome members of the French Porcelain Society from around the world to London.

John Mallet will be giving the Sir Geoffrey de Bellaigue Lecture following the Annual General Meeting of the Society on Saturday 20th June. His subject, ‘The Travels of von Tschirnhaus’, will provide a fitting climax to two days of céramiques sans frontiers!

By the time Tschirnhaus involved Johann Friedrich Böttger in the researches that resulted in the invention of Meissen porcelain he had been in touch with many of the finest minds in Europe at a time when The Royal Society in London was only one of a number of academies stimulating scientific discovery, without regard to national frontiers.
