Ceramic treasures - highlights from the collection of the Thun Castle Foundation


Congress, Course
Lecture on local pottery production by ceramics expert and archaeologist Dr. Andreas Heege.
Since March 29, the Thun Castle Foundation has been presenting selected ceramics in the special exhibition "Preserved Treasures - Insights into the Ceramics Collection of the Thun Castle Foundation". The museum houses one of the largest collections of ceramics in the canton, including the most important collection of "Thun majolica" and special pieces by ceramicists such as Friedrich Ernst Frank, Caesar and Hans Schmalz as well as the Desa art pottery.

Thanks to the Ceramica Foundation Basel, a general inventory is currently being carried out with the aim of making the entire collection accessible online by 2025. This important task is being undertaken by Dr. Andreas Heege, who will give the lecture "Ceramic Treasures - Highlights from the Collection of the Thun Castle Foundation" as part of this exhibition.
