Donations indispensable

In 1935, George Goossens made an appeal to the people of Tegel to donate old ceramic pieces for a collection of Tegel ceramic handicrafts. This collection formed the basis of the collection now managed by the Tegel Ceramics Centre.

From the very beginning, we see that donations are indispensable for building a collection. Even in later years, the museum has been able to build a broad collection of ceramics thanks to the favour of generous donors.

Three large donations complete collection

Three major donations enable Ceramics Centre Tiendschuur Tegelen to offer a complete overview of the development of art ceramics from 1935 to the present day. The museum is therefore very grateful to these and all other donors.
