Nantgarw porcelain was once among the most famous on the planet, and you can learn all about this proud material at its eponymous museum, located in the village of the same name (13km from Cardiff). Nantgarw porcelain rose to prominence in the first few decades of the 19th century, before falling out of favour remarkably quickly. The original factory was turned into a museum in 1989, financial difficulties have plagued it ever since. It is now something of an artist colony, with the influence of that famous porcelain never far away.

Not quite sure where the ‘financial difficulties’ or ‘artists colony’ come from. The Museum is run by the Nantgarw China Works Trust, a registered charity, and is thriving as a museum housing one of the worlds most important collections of Nantgarw porcelain, a pottery running 350 workshops a year and a chinaworks which is once again making work from Nantgarw porcelain the only trus softpaste porcelain in production anywhere in the world.
