The Dinnerware Museum permanent collection features international dinnerware from ancient to futuristic times; created from ceramic, glass, metal, plastic, lacquer, fiber, paper, wood and more. Highlights include masterpieces of the tabletop genre created by contemporary artists, as well as notable historic dinnerware by the leading designers for industry, juxtaposed with an uncommon focus on non-functional fine art that references dining and a bit of kitsch thrown in for good measure.
