International Colloquium - "Middeleeuwse baksteenarchitectuur / Medieval brick architecture", 24-27 October 2007 in: Abdijhoeve Ten Bogaerde, Ten Bogaerdelaan 12, B-8670 Koksijde. Tel. +32 (0)58 53 39 51. Fax +32 (0)58 51 00 61. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. The former Cistercian Abbey of Our Lady of the Dunes is one of the important medieval brick architecture sites in Europe. The Cistercians were one of the initiators in northern Europe to use brick as a replacement building material for stone. At the Dunes Abbey this led to a current brick collection of more than 600 different types. This colloquium looks at medieval brick architecture and forms in a broader perspective. It is organised at the end of the current restoration campaign of a major part of the ruins and want to encourage both reflection and research into medieval brick architecture and techniques in the North Sea Area.  -

Article LESAFFRE Odile - 'Kleur en variatie. Keramiek in de architectuur in Noord-Frankrijk en België, 1880-1940; Couleur et variété. La place de la céramique dans l’architecture en France septentrionale et en Belgique, 1880-1940', De Franse Nederlanden - 2003, nr. 28, pp. 117-137  
In het midden van de 19de eeuw kende de toepassing van keramiek in de architectuur een hoogtepunt in Noord-Frankrijk en België. Door het gebrek aan respect voor deze kunstvorm zijn hiervan op dit ogenblik nog maar weinig resten overgebleven. Odile Lesaffre toont in haar bijdrage aan hoe gedurende meer dan een halve eeuw keramiek kleur en variatie bracht in de architecturale stijlen als eclecticisme, Art nouveau en Art deco.
Au milieu du XIXe siècle, l'utilisation de la céramique en architecture connut son apogée en Belgique et dans le nord de la France. Suite au peu de respect témoigné pour cette forme artistique, nous n'en avons conservé que quelques rares exemplaires. Dans sa contribution, Odile Lesaffre montre comment la céramique apporta, pendant plus d'un demi-siècle, couleur et variation dans l'architecture et marqua des styles aussi divers que l'éclectisme, l'Art nouveau et l'Art déco.

Study day "Postwar Murals study day", Tuesday 20th November 2007, The Gallery, 70 Cowcross Street, London EC1M 6EL, organised by the Tiles and Architectural Ceramics Society. See  for the latest news on this study day and for the Booking Form.
The study day is for all those interested in the future of British mural art from the post-1945 era, when murals in a vast range of materials - tiles, mosaic, concrete, fibreglass and many more - were produced for a wide variety of locations. This was a true revival in the art of mural making. Many of these attractive but often little-known and vulnerable artworks are now threatened, and are rarely helped by the listed buildings legislation. Our comprehensive panel of speakers will show us wonderful examples of postwar mural art and discuss how best these works may be conserved. The study day will run from around 9.45am-4.30pm, and the £47 cost will include a buffet lunch. The Gallery is opposite Farringdon Station.

Exhibition "Schönheit aus dem Feuer. Fliesenkunst aus acht Jahrhunderten", 15.04 bis 16.09. 2007, in: MUSEUM HUELSMANN BIELEFELD – Angewandte Kunst & Design, Ravensberger Park 3, 33607 Bielefeld, Tel. 0521 / 51 37 67, Fax 0521 / 51 37 68. Di.-Sa. 14.00 bis 18.00 Uhr; So. 11.00 bis 18.00 Uhr. (Ausstellung des Museums für Kunst und Kulturgeschichte Dortmund).
Seltene Tonfliesen aus dem hohen Mittelalter, farbenprächtige Majolikafliesen der italienischen Renaissance sowie Fayencenfliesen mit groteskem Dekor aus dem Schloß Écouen bei Paris, ferner barocke Fliesen aus Spanien und aus den Niederlanden bis hin zu Beispielen aus dem 19. Jahrhundert belegen die außerordentliche Wertschätzung der Fliese im Bereich der vornehmen Raumkunst. Mehr als 300 kostbare Exponate geben einen Einblick in die Geschichte der europäischen Fliesenkunst vom 12. Jahrhundert bis zu den Anfängen des Jugendstils.
Die Ausstellung präsentiert die erst seit kurzem aufgearbeitete, zwischenzeitlich bereits legendär gewordene Privatsammlung des renommierten Schweizer Archäologen und Kunstwissenschaftlers Dr. Robert Forrer (1866-1947), wie sie vom Museum für Kunst und Kulturgeschichte Dortmund im Wettstreit mit größten internationalen Museen angekauft werden konnte. Im Museum Huelsmann ist sie insgesamt auf drei Ebenen des Hauses zu sehen.
Besonders beeindrucken den heutigen Betrachter die frühen Beispiele, die aus Kirchen, Klöstern und Burgen stammen, so auch aus der Abteikirche von Cluny, dem Zisterzienserinnenkloster Marienhausen, aus Siena und Florenz und aus dem maurischen Spanien. Vielfältig und skurril sind die verwendeten Motive, unter den Darstellungen finden sich Ritter, Mönche, Fabelwesen, heraldische Tiere und rätselhafte Zeichen. Ornamente fügen sich über mehrere Fliesen hinweg zu großen Rapport- und Kreismustern zusammen. Bemerkenswert erscheinen auch die differenzierten Herstellungstechniken, die sich aus nächster Nähe am Objekt studieren lassen.

Article JOLIET, Wilhelm - 'Ahnengalerie der besonderen Art', in: Fliesen und Platten, 6/2007, p. 32-33.

Exhibition "Carl Sigmund Luber, ontwerper van Jugendstilkeramiek voor Johann von Schwarz, 1896-1906", in: Nederlands Tegelmuseum, Eikenzoom 12, 6731 BH Otterlo. Tel. +31-318-591.519, Fax -592.000, 15 september - 2 december 2007. Karakteristiek voor de ontwerpen van Luber zijn de combinatie van moderne industriële technieken en ambachtelijk handwerk. De tegels werden volgens moderne methoden geperst, waarbij de lijnen van de tekening een reliëf vormen dat de kleurvlakken begrenst. De kleuren kunnen hierdoor snel en eenvoudig ingevuld worden. Toch blijkt steeds dat delen van de voorstelling, zoals de gezichten van de vrouwen, heel zorgvuldig met de hand werden uitgewerkt. Opvallend is ook de diepe glans van de glazuren, helemaal vrij van craquelé. De gebruikte grondstof, uit de eigen speksteenmijnen van de fabriek, was van een zeer zuivere kwaliteit en de gebruikte glazuren waren hierop zeer goed afgestemd. Opvallend zijn vaak ook de monturen waarin veel tegels gezet zijn.
Hierna zal de collectie te zien zijn in Galerie Handwerk, Handwerkskammer für München und Obernbayern München, 16 januari – 16 februari 2008

De Koninklijke Plateelbakkerij Rozenburg (1883-1917) vervaardigde aardewerk en porselein dat internationaal werd bewonderd. De gloriedagen van de Haagse fabriek zijn nauw verbonden met de namen van ontwerper Colenbrander en directeur Kok. De tentoonstelling ‘Rozenburg: plateel uit Haagse kringen’ in het Gemeentemuseum Den Haag beperkt zich echter niet alleen tot hun creatieve jaren. Op de expositie en in de bijbehorende publicatie wordt een zo volledig mogelijk beeld gegeven van de fabriek die zozeer in Haagse kringen verkeerde.


Tile Museum The Can Tinturé Museum of Esplugues de Llobregat, province of Barcelona (already mentioned in Bulletin n°23) opened its doors on 7 May 2003 and is located in the old quarter, in a house built in the late 19th century. Its collection consists mainly of the Salvador Miquel collection, which was acquired in 1999 by the Esplugues Town Council, with a view to preserving it and promoting its study. The collection is made up of more than 10.000 tiles of different styles and patterns, with dates ranging from the 16th century to the 20th century. The museum also organises temporary exhibitions in several town venues and manages the premises of the old Pujol i Bausis factory, more commonly known as “La Rajoleta” (the little tile), which is located just a few metres away from the museum. This factory was an important centre of production of Modern Style ceramics, samples of which can be seen in such outstanding buildings as the Park Güell, the Casa Lleó Morera and the Casa Amatller, of Barcelona, or the Institut Pere Mata of Reus, and many buildings of Antoni Gaudi included in the UNESCO2s World Heritage List.

1) 'De la pintura costumista flamenca als pessebres casolans de Catalunya: un recorregut per les manifestacions de l'escatologia en la imatgeria i la ceràmica' (From the popular art of the Flemish paintings to the domestic nativity scenes of Catalonia: a journey through the scatological imagery in paintings and ceramics), by Jordi Arruga, p 35-47. Images with scatological elements became frequent during the times of the Flemish painters Bosch and Breughel the Elder. Later on, some of the Dutch tiles from the beginning of the 17th century, began to show figures defecating, a fact that was continued on Catalan tiles by the end of that same century.
2) 'L'arrambador de rajoles d'aresta de la capella de San Bernabé de Zumaia, Guipúscoa' (The Arista Tile Frieze in the Saint Bernabé Chapel of Zumaya, Guipúzcoa) by Javier Carballo Berazadi, Xavier Gabarró Vall, Ismael Manterola Ispizua, p 48-60. In the year 1504 the Elorriaga family bought the privilege to build a chapel in the parish church of the town of Zumaya. That area, dedicated to Saint Bernabé, is decorated with a frieze, made of the so-called "arista" technique tiles. There are three models of tiles.

Exhibition "Talaveras de Puebla. Ceràmica colonial mexicana. Segles XVII a XXI" in: Museu de Ceramica, Barcelona, until September 2, 2007.
"La ciutat de Puebla de los Ángeles, fundada el 1531 pels conqueridors espanyols, és famosa per la qualitat, la quantitat i la bellesa de la seva ceràmica i per la brillantor i el color de les rajoles que revesteixen les cúpules i les façanes dels seus edificis. A través de les dues rutes comercials marítimes, van arribar a Mèxic terrissaires xinesos, espanyols i italians, que van instal·lar els seus tallers a Puebla i hi van implantar les tecnologies més avançades, que van provocar el col·lapse de la producció de ceràmica prehispànica."
