Composition of the collection

Two millennia of ceramics

The Tiendschuur collection has its origins in the red-firing clay from Tegelen soil. In the 18th and 19th centuries, many potters' ateliers used it to make functional ware. But this clay was also used to make coarse ceramic products (roof tiles, bricks, etc.). The oldest ceramic work in the collection dates from the Romans (± 100 AD), the latest works are creations by contemporary artists from all over the Netherlands and Europe.
