»30 Years Thüringer Töpferinnung 1990·2020«
On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the founding of the Thuringian potters' guild, the members show current works in the Bürgel Ceramic Museum, the only special museum of its kind in Central Germany. The exhibition provides a fantastic insight into the diversity of Thuringian pottery. The oeuvre of pottery ranges from tableware to individual artistic items, from engobe and faience painting to salt-glazed stoneware.
The exhibits come not only from Thuringia but also from potters from Bavaria, Berlin and Saxony-Anhalt who have joined the Thuringian Guild.
With the season opening of the Dornburg castles, a second part of the exhibition will be shown in the Rococo castle with the motto "New Thuringian faience and other glazing techniques".
