Non-profit museum founded in 2014 by Arthur Wiener and his family to inspire appreciation and understanding of ceramics and glass as art forms.
The galleries showcase the finest British and European pottery and porcelain from the last two centuries, including Wedgwood, Royal Doulton and Lladró. The role of ceramic art in fashionable interiors of the 19th and 20th centuries is evoked with displays from the Arts & Crafts, Art Nouveau and Art Deco eras. Among the highlights of the contemporary collection is the work of the Ardmore Studio in South Africa where Zulu artists make vibrant ceramic art.
In addition to the collection of ceramics, WMODA features important works by French glass artist Renée Lalique and masters of the American studio glass movement, notably Dale Chihuly. The collection of studio glass continues to support talented artists working in America today.
