Maiolica in Renaissance Venice: Ceramics and Luxury at the Crossroads



The Exhibition Catalogue explores Maiolica in Renaissance Venice. A multi-cultural metropolis, the trade routes brought cultural and material exchange from Chinese porcelain to Islamic metalware to Venetian textiles and glass.  Looking at the success of the maiolica industry due to the influx of migrant artisans in the city, there are parallels to contemporary life and the ways artisans work presently in connection to the past. Featuring over 110 objects in the exhibition, the book is rich with scholarly information and illustration.
