The Luxury of Clay: Porcelain Past and Present

Opening Saturday, February 19, 2022

Enter a world of opulence and reinvention, and explore the journey of hard-paste porcelain, through the finest examples of vases, teapots, figurines, dishes, and more. Hillwood founder Marjorie Merriweather Post valued porcelain objects for their beauty, exquisite design, and historic associations. While most were crafted for specific uses, these items are valued objects in their own right. With more than 125 objects, ranging from 18th-century Meissen, Du Paquier, KPM, and the Imperial Porcelain Factory to contemporary objects that reimagine the enduring art form today, The Luxury of Clay will explore how the important discovery of “true porcelain” in Europe ignited centuries of innovation and creativity.
