The objective of the Oxford Ceramics Group is to encourage the study of European pottery and porcelain whilst also exploring their links to other cultures. We aim to provide a forum for collectors, students and enthusiasts to obtain and exchange information.

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’s activities are summarised in a newsletter. This is posted to members three times a year. The newsletter also contains the occasional research article, examples of which may be viewed on this website via the Ceramics Research page.

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.
