The beautiful qualities of porcelain and bone china have fascinated patrons, collectors and makers alike for centuries. The two materials are often perceived as one and the same clay, for they both possess qualities of whiteness, strength and translucency. However each material has its own particular characteristics, which merit further exploration and discussion.

Porcelain is a well-documented subject both in traditional and contemporary terms. Bone china has historically been labelled an ‘industrial’ material which has narrowed its appeal. Porcelain and Bone China aims to redress the balance by demonstrating how these clays have played an equally important role within and outside the industrial domain.
