Dusseldorf: Hetjens-Museum / Deutsches Keramikmuseum

Yesterday, Georgiana and myself went to the local Ceramics-museum. I had a coupon, so entry was free for both of us. Being a very warm and beautiful sunny afternoon, we had the entire place to ourselves! Although Georgiana seemed a little disappointed that the museum’s collection didn’t hold much modern design or many innovative pieces, I quite liked some of the historical items on display.

Normally I do not hold a great fascination for ceramics, apart from that I seem to be buying flowerpots and vases everywhere and I don’t even have my own balcony, garden or ever buy or receive flowers!I was pleasantly surprised at some of the items – there were a few to provide me with inspiration and even one or two to add to a personal shopping list. I wouldn’t mind owning a pair of porcelain containers like the ones from the dinner service Magnolia, designed by Fance Franck for the ‘Dansk International’ (1983/ 84)

 

Afterwards we went for ice cream and little R&R in front of one the museums nearby. Apparently they are nice enough to put sun loungers outside around the fountain when it’s warm enough 🙂

Let’s hope the great weather keeps up as I’m traveling to the Netherlands this Sunday to finally start mixing those chemicals and start wet plate shooting!
