      EVENT DETAILS
      Russian Gzhel Exhibition

      Gzhel is the name of a major ceramics Center situated some fifty kilometers southeast of Moscow. The village of Gzhel is mentioned for the first time in the fourteenth century in the testament of Ivan Kalita the Moneybag, the Grand Prince of Muscovy.
      The secrets of the craft were handed down from generation to generation long before, Gzhel really rose to fame as a large center of ceramics in the eighteenth century when local potters mastered the making of majolica or majolicasonbriguet to the island of Majorca, where these ceramic wares were made.
