I so far failed to give the Ceramics Museum a sub-gallery of its own, but after adding some fine scanned slides from the 1990's the collection was large enough to finally make good. The production of high quality "fritware" (the Encylopaedia Brittanica gives it as "soft paste porcelain" or Cini used to be in Iznik (see other gallery). There it went into decline and gradually production was transferred to Kütahya (where at another industry they also make porcelain proper). Kütahya ware used to have characteristics of its own, but ever more the classical Iznik patterns and colours are used. Over the last tens of years great improvements have been made in quality and design. One can see and buy plates, tiles, bowls et cetera all over the country, particularly in the tourist areas. I prefer to do my buying in Kütahya itself. The local ceramics museum now houses a good collection of some old pieces and examples of modern work, often a gift by their producers.
