The Ceramics Museum in Ludwigsburg Palace
This world-class collection is more than just lovely vases, cups and mugs. From colorful majolica to delicate porcelain, the 2,000 objects on display provide insight into the past.
Much more than pretty china
These are artworks in their own right. The richly-decorated plates and table settings recall the splendor of 18th-century aristocratic meals. The array includes charming animals, costumed figurines and stately urns from the Rococo period, as well as fine examples of ceramics from important 19th-century manufacturers.
- Architectural tip: In the museum galleries, note the Baroque stucco work and ceiling frescoes, which provide the perfect backdrop for the collection.
- Hands-on tip: In his workshop in the museum, Japanese master ceramicist Kenji Fuchiwaki demonstrates how ceramics are made. You can even work at the potter’s wheel and get advice from Kenji himself. Your creations will be finished and glazed the way you want and then fired.
