Museo nacional de la ceramica

NATIONAL MUSEUM OF CERAMICS

The Jorge Wilmot National Ceramic Museum seeks to rescue the beauty of ceramics and the work of its master creators in Mexico, with an emphasis on the West of the country. He aspires to rescue his techniques in danger of extinction, to promote knowledge of their materials, processes and traditions and to reflect on the importance of ceramics in the history and in the national identity. The National Museum of Ceramics builds a history of its raw material: ceramics, the life of Tonalá. The National Museum was built between 1959 and 1960 on a site that two great avant-garde ceramics, Jorge Wilmot (+) and Ken Edwards, acquired to install the first kiln for high-temperature ceramics in Tonalá.
