20th Century Production Ceramics
20th Century Production Ceramics

Production, quality and speed. This display celebrates the design, output and manufacture of production pottery in Canada. Unlike handmade, one-of-a-kind studio ceramics, we tip our hat to the assembly line, the conveyor belt, the artisan and the machine. Canada rose to the challenge and needs of the Canadian home, hospitality and industrial market, supplying quality and quantity. Good design and
manufacturing skills came together and blossomed in the years immediately following the Second World War. The result was an impressive array of ceramics. Products that supplied a growing niche in the Canadian market for domestically produced wares for the twentieth century.

A variety of ceramics from Natco, Beauce, Laurentian, and Sovereign are on display.
