Housed in an attractive building across from the Royal Ontario
Museum, the Gardiner Museum of Ceramics is one of the city's finest
examples of modernist architecture. Giving visitors a glimpse into
a universal art form that has spanned centuries, the Gardiner
Museum exhibits over 3,000 historical and contemporary ceramic
pieces. With earthenware of all different shapes and sizes from the
ancient Americas, China, Japan, the Italian Renaissance and more, a
tour through the museum will shape visitors' understanding of the
development of the ceramic process. On Friday evenings visitors can
try their hand at sculpting and wheel throwing in the open clay
studio or attend free films and seminars.
