Welcome to the Oxford Ceramics Group.We cover all aspects of ceramics from the 17th century to the 20th century, and our members have a wide range of interests.
The group organises study days, lectures and visits throughout the year which are carefully designed to provide members with stimulating material of the highest quality. Lecturers are amongst the leading authorities in their fields of study. On study days the group usually arranges handling sessions where lecturers are at hand to answer questions.
The group most frequently holds its meetings in the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, but sometimes an Oxford college provides the venue.
The Oxford Ceramics Group aims to make meetings enjoyable for members as well as informative.

The oldest known ceramic artifact is dated as early as 28,000 BCE, during the late Paleolithic period. … It is believed that from China the use of pottery successively spread to Japan and the Russian Far East region where archeologists have found shards of ceramic artifacts dating to 14,000 BCE.
