MOC Talk Lectures

The Museum of Ceramics is now recording MoC Talk Lectures! After several failed attempts at using dated technology, the purchase of new audio video equipment has allowed for the taping of the lectures. We are in the process of establishing a YouTube Channel to make these videos accessible to our followers. Once established you will find links to the lectures on this page.

Lotus Ware was produced by Knowles, Taylor, and Knowles in the 1890s.  Many consider it to be the finest bone china ever produced in the United States.
