Seminar on Pottery & Ceramics @ Lopez Memorial Museum

On November 16, Friday, 8am-5pm, representatives from the National Museum of the Philippines' Archaeology Division will be resource persons on pottery and ceramics in a seminar open to those who care for, study and collect such items. This seminar will be held at the Lopez Memorial Museum. China's contribution in terms of ceramics and the distribution in Southeast Asia of these and other Asian ceramics will be discussed. Also included is a general introduction to ceramics (types, terminology, process), and the manufacture, construction, finishing and surface treatment of pottery. Archaeology has helped unearth these items and in terms of underwater archaeology, discussion will focus on its three phases of conserving ceramics from underwater sites.

Research into the Philippines' past has involved looking into pottery and ceramics. Many such samples are in private and museum collections with varying levels of accessibility to the public. While most display excellent preservation in archaeological contexts as stated by Ms Amalia de la Torre of the National Museum, these materials also deteriorate and are damaged. With a better understanding of the materials that embody aspects of our precolonial past, improved means of caring for this tangible cultural heritage can be established. Fee of Php1,500.00 includes lunch and snacks.

The Lopez Memorial Museum is at the ground floor, Benpres Building, Exchange Road corner Meralco Avenue, Pasig City. Museum days and hours are Mondays-Saturdays, 8am-5pm, except holidays.
