"The Pottery Museum in the heart of Toronto, near the Metro Station, adjacent to the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM), is a permanent exhibit of the East and West, full of ceramics developments, contemporary and modern special exhibitions, small shops in the ground floor, local pottery artists' works, and dining facilities on the top floor." The basement is used for teaching in the studio. On Friday, the public can make an appointment to attend the pottery experience class held in the afternoon.
Students who like ceramic art can come to this museum to have a look. The collection is relatively rich. You can see not only the very beautiful ancient European palace ceramic products, but also Asian ceramic art represented by China.
The gardinger museum is translated as the Gardner Museum. There is a long-legged vase at the door, which is very fun. I just went to the exhibition of Ai Weiwei's works when I went to Toronto, but I didn’t see it because of time.
The Gardner Ceramic Museum is also a very exquisite small museum. Many of the ceramic crafts here are based on the ancient traditional Chinese culture. The porcelain is also burnt into different types and shapes.
The Toronto Ceramic Museum is located opposite the famous Royal Ontario Museum. The most conspicuous sign is the long-legged porcelain at the door. When I went there, I was exhibiting Ai Weiwei’s work.
The Ceramic Museum is the only Canadian museum that exhibits ceramic art. Ceramic art is considered to be one of the oldest art and material cultures in the world. The museum's collections span all continents and ages, allowing visitors to understand the development, decoration and formal style of ceramic craftsmanship. The museum itself is the winner of multiple architectural awards and is open to the public every day. There is "Toronto's Best Gift Shop" (fashionable) and a cafe hosted by celebrity chef Jamie Kennedy.
