Keramis - Ceramics Centre

A museum and arts & creation centre dedicated to ceramics, Keramis is built on the site of the ancient Boch Keramis pottery works in La Louvière. Its modern and audacious architecture encompasses an ancient, listed building containing four giant glass furnaces – the last of their kind in Belgium.

Boch products: the museum houses a remarkable 19th and 20th-century earthenware collection produced at the Boch Keramis factory – a flagship of Belgian industry. Exceptional creations by art studios, such as Charles Catteau vases, are shown alongside everyday items. In the section of the reserve open to the public, a special layout presents industrial earthenware manufacturing techniques.

Contemporary ceramics: Keramis also showcases a large collection of ceramic works by artists from the second half of the 20th century, reflecting an entire, little-known facet of Belgian art. This collection continues to be enriched with creations by international contemporary artists.

Exhibitions: every year, Keramis explores the world of ceramics through a range of temporary exhibitions. In addition to retrospectives focusing on historic figures, Keramis dedicates a large portion of its programme to collective or personal exhibitions by modern-day artists.

Art & creation: Keramis also offers a research and creation workshop, where visitors can learn various techniques to allow them to better understand the ancient and modern works on show. The workshop also offers technical support for residential artists specialized in disciplines other than ceramics (design, graphic arts, etc.).

Le Keramis accueille une brocante de la production Boch. Collectionneurs et amateurs de céramique se donnent rendez-vous à La Louvière.

Boch est connu pour être le véritable fleuron de l'industrie belge de la production de céramique. Ce centre d'art, d'architecture contemporaine, offre un panorama de l'histoire et de la production de céramique de la Manufacture Boch à travers une surprenante collection.

Une brocante particulière

C'est dans cette même optique qu'une brocante exclusivement dédiée à cette production prendra place au sein même des salles d'exposition du Keramis, le Centre de la Céramique de La Louvière. Tout en adéquation avec les oeuvres exposées car les visiteurs auront l'opportunité de découvrir celles-ci.
