Exhibition: “Women in the ceramic industry of Manises”

Manises is the protagonist of the celebration #20anys20pobles. A joint exhibition that aims to show all the heritage of the municipalities that are part of the Horta Sud region. The protagonists of our exhibition will be two: women and ceramics.

The participation of women in the production of ceramics in Manises is supposed to have been present since its origins, but it is not until the 19th century that there is explicit documentation on the subject. Her most appreciated work within the production system of the earthenware workshops and factories was that carried out by brush and freehand, but she also played an important role in the decoration of tiles by the system of climbing and piping. Today, some women are also recognised for their skill in the plastic production of flowers, both in earthenware and porcelain.

In the exhibition we will be able to see photographs of high documentary value that reflect the importance and presence of women in the ceramic history of Manises, as well as the documentary film “Reflections of Manises”, dating from the 1940s.

The exhibition will be held from 8 to 15 September 2021.

Place: Museo Comarcal Horta Sud, Calle Mare de Déu de l’Olivar 30

Opening hours: Monday to Friday from 10 am to 1 pm and from 5 pm to 8 pm.

We are waiting for you!
