Introduction to Ceramics

handout from SHCG seminar

Resource verified by SHCG editorial group


In November 2005, SHCG ran a seminar giving an introduction to ceramics for social history curators.

Robin Emmerson of the Society of Decorative Arts Curators (SODAC) and National Museums Liverpool led a handling session on British pottery and porcelain for beginners, concentrating on the 18th and 19th centuries. Delegates learned how to recognise the basic technical types. 

This handout is a useful starting point in learning how to identify ceramics in social and local history collections.
